TV advertising agency Marketing Architects has welcomed Ron Blevins to the company as Vice President of Media. Blevins has gained extensive experience in the Minneapolis media industry over the years, including his most recent role as Vice President Director of Investment for Haworth Marketing + Media in Minneapolis, where he developed a unified investment practice for all of the agency’s media buying.
