Marketing firm announces ownership change

Aug. 21, 2019

Sioux Falls-based Insight Marketing Design has some new owners.

Jill Smith, vice president of digital services, and Roger Nolan, vice president of account services, have become partial owners in the advertising agency.

Doug Moss and Candy Van Dam founded Insight in 2003. Earlier this year, Van Dam sold her shares of the marketing firm to Moss, Smith and Nolan. She will continue working at the agency as vice president of strategy. In that role, Van Dam will provide marketing and communication strategies, as well as public relations services, to clients throughout the country.

Moss will continue in his role as president and executive creative director. He said the transition has been a long-term plan.

“We were excited to find two strong leaders in our agency who have the skills, experience and agency history to step into ownership roles,” he said.

“Candy will be able to focus her efforts on national and regional clients’ needs as well as local community involvement. Jill’s relentless curiosity and the way she is wired to find solutions will break new ground for digital campaigns. And Roger has established his ability to be our key point person with Insight Marketing Design’s largest clients.”

Smith joined the agency in 2008 as a web developer and designer. Since then, she has led the agency’s front-end and back-end digital projects.

Before joining the agency in 2016, Nolan was an Insight client. In his role as vice president of account services, Nolan works directly with many of the agency’s clients and manages the account service and media team.

Insight is based at 401 E. Eighth St.
