Owen Hannay, CEO

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.
