We are part of the Slingshot ecosystem of companies that operate autonomously but can pool resources as needed for the success of our clients. We are also part of the AMIN Global Network of mid-sized, independently owned agencies which provides us with as-needed resources that rival the global holding companies.


Since graduating from Oklahoma State with a degree in Advertising & Public Relations, Gordon has worked with a number of terrific advertising agencies including Moroch, Grey, Backer & Spielvogel and Bozell and has been in an ownership or senior leadership role at outstanding agencies such as Keller Crescent, Hadeler Sullivan & Law, Slingshot, and for the past five years as president of Swimming Duck.  Throughout his career he has worked on brands in virtually every industry including automotive, financial services, food & beverage, health care, home services, technology, and travel & tourism.  Outside of work Gordon has been an adjunct instructor at SMU since 2011 and he strives to be a great father and husband and an average golfer.

Owen founded Slingshot Advertising in Dallas in 1995 with the belief that clients and agencies were missing out on opportunities enabled by the exploding media landscape and digital environment. Prior to that, he spent a decade working for The Richards Group and Publicis, also in Dallas. In the intervening years he has established several additional ventures in Real Estate and Marketing including Speakeasy, a social content agency in partnership with The Dallas Morning News, and now has invested in Insite. A graduate of the University of Virginia and SMU, Owen has worn many hats throughout his career, but his favorite two remain those of husband and dad.

Karen has energy that puts a spark plug to shame. With over 25 years of financial and accounting experience, from public accounting with a large global firm to advertising agencies of all sizes, Karen definitely has us covered in the money department. Proud and vocal about being a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Karen shows her Longhorn pride wherever she goes. And it’s no surprise that her first childhood calling was to be a veterinarian—she and her husband are parents to no fewer than five canine companions.
