Balcom Agency Hires Christina McKinney as Account Director
FORT WORTH, Texas – Nov. 25, 2014 – Christina McKinney has joined Balcom Agency as account director. McKinney brings more than 13 years of advertising experience in multiple industries to her new role at Balcom.
Previously an account manager with AvreaFoster in Dallas, McKinney managed accounts for such clients as Concentra, IBM and Acosta Sales & Marketing. She has also worked for CompUSA, TracyLocke and Italia Partners, where she gained experience working within a wide variety of industries, including health care, technology and retail.
