His tenure at Sprint lasted 9 years.
“The growth we have experienced as an agency in the past two years and our plans for future growth require us to bring in the best talent to run the operational side of this agency,” said Meers. “Jeff’s leadership and management experience make him perfect for this position and mandate.

- Oversight of agency capital allocation and growth projects, financial processes and performance;

“Jeff will work directly with the agency’s senior staff to assure we deliver a great creative product and an excellent client experience,” continued Meers.
Earlier in his career, Mott worked at KPMG where he supervised auditing and consulting engagements for global clients in the financial services, manufacturing, retail and technology sectors.
Mott serves on the Board of Directors for the United Way of Greater Topeka, chairing the Strategic Planning Committee and participating as a member of the Executive Committee. He has also served on the Development Committee for Easter Seals Capper Foundation and as an Elder for his church.
