Brian Gardenhire
Chief Integration Officer
Camelot Communications

Brian oversees integrated media planning for key Camelot clients, including Southwest Airlines and AirTran Airways. A 30 year advertising veteran, he joined Camelot in 2007 from AOL, where he successfully led regional sales development efforts. He was also previously at Yahoo, where he developed strategic marketing solutions in the travel and automotive categories.

Brian spent most of his early career at Bozell/Temerlin McClain, where he oversaw media planning for American Airlines. His passion for interactive media struck early, as he was named the agency’s first director of new media in 1996. In that role, he pioneered interactive marketing efforts with clients such as Bank of America, Nationwide Insurance, Subaru, and the US Air Force. This combination of traditional and new media experience gives him a unique perspective on today’s integrated media marketplace.

Brian has lectured at SMU and the University of North Texas. He holds a BA from Stephen F. Austin and a graduate marketing certificate from SMU.
