Shawn Elledge is Founder of the Integrated Marketing Association (IMA) and the Integrated Marketing Summit (IMS).
Shawn is a more than a career marketer and entrepreneur. He's wired for integration. After years of event leadership as an officer and President of the Kansas City Business Marketing Association, Shawn became a sought-after speaker and presenter at marketing events across the country. Shawn saw a need for a convenient and affordable way for advertising and marketing professionals to stay current with rapidly changing and expanding marketing media and technologies, and how to use that information to help their companies and clients drive revenue rapidly. He developed the Integrated Marketing Summit (IMS) in 2009 to meet these needs.
In 2016 Shawn launched the Integrated Marketing Association (IMA) which is dedicated to the continued education and support of marketing professionals. IMA features many services to help support marketing professionals i.e. job board, martec showcase, online and in-person training, and educational events.
Shawn began his marketing career at 1989 as President and founder of Elledge Photographic labs Inc. in Austin, TX. Within five years, he grew the company from a one man, one client operation to over 600 active customers with 32 FTE.
