An Emmy-nominated writer, actor and all around nice guy, Jeff Pedigo has nearly 30 years of experience in marketing, advertising & communications. He is an advertising agency veteran, serving as Creative Director for a variety of national, regional and local clients. 

   A former adjunct professor at the University of Southern Mississippi (his alma mater), he has earned numerous awards at the local and national levels for his creative work, including many TELLYs and Best of Show ADDYs. He has been named Copywriter of the Year by his chapter of the American Advertising Federation, who also recognized him as Volunteer of the Year. However, Jeff suspects that this recognition was all just a ruse to get him to serve on the organization's Board of Directors. In 2008, he served as President of the organization, guiding the club through one of the most financially challenging years in its history. In addition to his civic activities with AAF Jackson, he is a graduate of the 2009-2010 class of Leadership Greater Jackson and a past president of the Leadership Greater Jackson Alumni Association.
