Durango Chamber of Commerce executive director Jack Llewellyn has lots of marketing tricks up his sleeve from many years’ experience in radio/TV sales and corporate fundraising.

A Fort Lewis College graduate in English and Communications, Llewellyn started his career as a radio DJ and segued into sales. Jack’s previous posts include sales manager and station manager at Kiss Radio (now Kiss Country), general sales manager at Clear Channel, and corporate fundraiser for FLC Athletics.

“I’ve seen success because of my ability to come up with advertising campaigns that stand out from the clutter, and also from knowing how to coordinate print, radio, TV and cable instead of just shot-gunning the approach out there.”

Llewellyn can help clients write scripts for radio or TV ads and put together a comprehensive campaign. “My focus is more on the creative side,” explains Jack. “I enjoy brainstorming and coming up with fun, innovative ideas. There is a lot to be said for some of the ways you can do it.”

Llewellyn can look at clients’ needs and help come up with a cost-effective media-buying strategy. As Chamber director for four years now, he is also finely tuned into the local business community

“We [the Chamber and the SBDC] try to connect everyone with the right people,” he says. “The Chamber does a lot of member-to-member events. We have about 800 members. There are so many offerings under our umbrella that continue to expand and evolve.”

Jack has also been through various trainings for Ref USA, a national data mining program that can be a guide for marketing, business sector indicators, competition analysis, and revenue projections.

The Durango Chamber, the SBDC, Region 9 EDD and the La Plata Alliance partner to offer Ref USA as a resource for local businesses.
