There’s a reason we say TEAM instead of staff.


Celeste Skidmore
General Manager


There honestly isn’t much Celeste hasn’t done. She first joined ADsmith as an account executive in 2006. In 2008, she was promoted to Executive Vice President, a title she holds today, along with that of General Manager. Celeste is an instrumental leader in the company, implementing the growing vision and directives of the president into creative, actionable, profitable and fully-accountable components. She’s always on alert for ways to make ADsmith more effective and efficient—whether that means role swapping for staff or additional training. Celeste also provides outstanding leadership for our clients, managing several accounts and working nonstop to ensure client needs are met and expectations exceeded.

Celeste studied Consumer Science and Marketing at Missouri State University and spent twenty-seven years in radio. In the future, Celeste is determined to continue challenging herself at ADsmith to ensure it’s the best marketing firm for clients and staff.
