Washington, DC – Today, Go BIG Media, a Washington, D.C. and Florida based digital media firm, announced the addition of a new partner, and President of Creative Strategies, Brent Barksdale. The new hire is a big get for the upstart firm ahead of 2016, ensuring Go BIG’s clients will have access to one of the most creative political minds in the country.
Prior to leading Go Big Media’s creative team, Brent was Executive Vice President of Jamestown Associates and President of his own full-service political consulting firm he founded in 1997. Over his twenty year career, Brent has worked for candidates in over 20 states, and earned several “Pollie” Awards from the American Society of Political Consultants for his outside-the-box media work. Many of Brent’s ads have been featured on Drudge Report, Fox News, MSNBC and have garnered millions of views on Youtube. Perhaps most notable is “The Donkey Whisperer”, featuring Congressman Roger Williams of Texas.
With Barksdale’s hiring, Go BIG Media will officially be planting its flag in his home state of Texas - opening its third office since launching just three short months ago.
Go BIG Media’s Principal Partner, Phillip Stutts, released this statement on Barksdale joining the Go BIG team:
“It’s been a hell of a 2015 for Go BIG Media. We created our new company in February, signed up a bench of new clients, and now we have hired one of the best creative ad makers in the business, Brent Barksdale. While his college football team, LSU, can’t hold a candle to my University of Alabama, I’m really excited about the creative direction Brent will take this company with digital media. Roll Tide and Geaux Tigers (I’m holding my nose by saying, “Geaux Tigers,” but Brent negotiated it into his contract)!”
