“We hired Justin as a catalyst,” said PlanOmatic Chief Executive Kori Covrigaru. “PlanOmatic is entering a new era.

Meek has been on the cutting edge of advancements in the marketing industry for much of the past decade. A serial entrepreneur, Meek co-founded his first company, a strategic marketing and advertising firm by the name of Cicero International in his hometown of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma at the age of 23.

I’m looking forward to getting boots on the ground in some of our major markets and meeting with our clients face-to-face.”
Among Meek’s notable achievements is a media relations campaign in Tanzania, Africa in which Meek’s client was recognized by several Tanzania based publications and most notably, the International Herald Tribune. Additionally, Meek has worked with a broad range of clients including significant experience with real estate and development, CPG, entertainment, hospitality, B2B, Native American gaming interests, tribal governments, higher education, and professional services.
