SMG Names Senior Management Group

DALLAS Southwest Media Group has created a top management tier of five executives to handle the agency’s rapid growth, said president and CEO Bob Nichol.

The senior management group includes Jeff Doll, chief buying officer; Michelle Stinson, chief operating officer; Don Stanislaus, chief strategy officer; Evan Meeks, chief marketing officer; and Danny Green, director of new media, the agency said.

The senior management group will report to Nichol, who made the announcement at the agency’s annual meeting recently.

Nichol said the independent Dallas media planning and buying agency has seen its annual billings grow more than 400 percent in the last three years.

“The formation of this group allows us to serve our clients more effectively while positioning the agency for the future,” he said.

In 2005, its tenth year of business, SMG will place $150 million in media for clients including Dillard’s Department Stores, RH Donnelley Yellow Pages, Whataburger, Service Corporation International and Joe’s Crab Shack, the agency said.
