We get by with a little help from our friends…
What fun is a Speakeasy without a few pals? None. Luckily, we’ve got a lot of great people and companies who have our back.
TDMN is the majority owner of Speakeasy. However, we don’t office with them or operate within their internal management structures.
Through DMNmedia, TDMN is our primary business development arm, with all sales reps carrying Speakeasy in their quiver of solutions.
We also have exclusive rights to TDMN’s content archives for the use of our clients.
TDMN is also a client of Speakeasy. We work with their social media team on marketing and promotion initiatives. We help Crowdsource with social media around events. We handle all of FD‘s digital media. We do website content and social media for DMNmedia. We also advise TDMN management on M&A strategy and due diligence in certain key verticals.
AH Belo CEO Jim Moroney is Chairman of the Board of Speakeasy.
Slingshot is one of the Southwest’s largest independent ad agencies and is the other owner of Speakeasy.
Slingshot provides many of our operational services including finance, human resources, IT and overall agency management. Most importantly, they’re our daily advisor on how to best operate for the success of our clients.
We partner with Slingshot on a number of clients who work with them for advertising and branding and with us for content and social media. (This is a non-exclusive relationship – we work in a similar fashion with other ad agencies.)
When our clients are just embarking on a strategy, they do well to go through Slingshot’s digitally-informed planning process.
Slingshot’s owner, Owen Hannay, is the CEO of Speakeasy and its CFO, Karen Stanton, is our CFO.
