Xdesign, Inc., has named Hunter Territo as president and an equity partner of the company. Territo started as an intern in 2007 and has held multiple positions during his time with the company. Territo will lead the company in its creative strategy and execution, as he has for the past several years. As a part owner and president, Territo will bring Xdesign into a second generation of ownership, a goal the company has had since it began in 1990.
“I’ve had the opportunity to see Hunter grow, recruit an incredible team, and take our company on an incredible journey that’s still on its way up,” said Xdesign’s co-founder and CEO, Jamey Crump. “I could not be prouder to have him as our leader and as my business partner.”
A native of Baton Rouge, Territo graduated from Catholic High School and Louisiana State University. Territo’s accolades include Baton Rouge Business Report’s Forty Under 40, Sales Marketing Executive’s Marketer of the Year and American Advertising Federation’s President of the Year. Additionally, he led a statewide charge in successfully opposing and blocking legislation that would have put a state tax on professional services.
He serves as a member of the American Advertising Federation of Baton Rouge’s Board of Directors, Alzheimer’s Association’s Public Relations Committee, LSU’s Communications Across the Curriculum Advisory Board and Vistage Worldwide. Territo also teaches Advertising Strategy as an adjunct instructor for the College of Mass Communications at Louisiana State University.
“I’m incredibly proud of this achievement; it’s a goal I’ve had since I started as an intern,” said Territo. “I’m thankful for the opportunities that Jamey and Martin have given me to succeed. Our greatest asset has always been our team; I’m equally as proud of the work we do as I am of our team members who create it. We’ve been able to be a part of some of the best brands in the local area, every day we get to be a part of their business dreams. Our clients have become some of my closest friends and I look forward to continuing to be a part of their great success.”
