WEAKS MCKINNEY-SMITH

President & CEO

I love what I do. Operating a successful advertising firm in an incredible place like Kentucky that allows creating accurate means, imagination and strategies to help our clients be more successful and bring profits, stability and growth to their businesses is the cultivation of my career path. Being so fortunate to work with consummate professionals in this long detailed process is also the large payoff for everyone. It all ensures a more successful outcome as the time to carefully evaluate what the identified goals should be and what it will take to get there is constantly and carefully measured. Communication is key and understanding what business climate clients are is a constant challenge.

LOVES

My Job. The Beach. Traveling. Fine Dining & Wine. Relaxing at home & dining with friends.
