Tillman Douglas Joins Atlanta Ad Agency The Partnership’s Leadership Team

Former Principal at Propel Agency and Long Time Digital Marketing Entrepreneur Joins The Partnership as the Full-Service Atlanta Advertising Agency Continues to Add to Its Growing Client Roster.

Atlanta, GA, February 23, 2014 --(PR.com)-- As the old ad industry cliché goes, the assets of an agency walk in and out the door every day. That said, The Partnership is proud to announce that yet another Atlanta agency marketing leader has just entered the building, in the form of long time Atlanta ad agency and digital marketing leader Tillman Douglas.

Douglas joins at a critical time in the agency’s ongoing evolution, bringing extensive experience building entrepreneurial digital marketing firms. His involvement in the space dates back to one of the city’s very first digital agencies, Interweb, which Douglas helped grow in 1995, and later sell to THINK New Ideas (now the Hackett Group). Since then, Douglas founded and sold three more digital firms, gaining experience along the way with brands including Coca-Cola, Waffle House, NAPA, Turner Broadcasting, Time Warner, Georgia Power, Shaw, Haverty’s, Clearleap, AT&T and many more. His efforts during that time garnered the attention of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Atlanta Business Chronicle (which profiled him in their 40 Under 40 issue), Georgia Trend magazine and Sales and Marketing Management. He’s also served on multiple non-profits and school alumni boards, including the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business (his alma mater), as well as both Westminster and Trinity Schools. In 2006, Tillman was appointed by Governor Sonny Purdue as a Director of the Georgia Technology Authority, in recognition of his long term role in the local digital community.

“Atlanta’s agency community has become a lot more vibrant thanks to the efforts of agencies like The Partnership,” Douglas said. “I’m excited to be on a team with the energy and entrepreneurial drive that brands across the region are looking for.”

“Tillman is an entrepreneur at heart,” said David Arnold, President of The Partnership. “He’s just the kind of person we need to help answer the rapidly evolving marketing challenges faced by modern companies. He will unquestionably add something extra to our already impressive team.”
