A writer, actor and all around nice guy, Jeff Pedigo is a former Associate Creative Director for GodwinGroup in Jackson, Mississippi—one of the South's oldest and largest marketing firms—having served such regional and national clients as Comcast, Louisville Slugger, State Farm Insurance, Time Warner Cable, Piccadilly and Whataburger, among many others.As Jeff Pedigo...Ad Agent, he currently provides marketing and consulting services to small businesses who can't afford to contract with a large ad agency, but who also can't afford to ignore their need for the services such agencies provide. He has earned numerous awards at local and national levels for his creative work, including many TELLYs and Best of Show ADDYs. He has been named Copywriter of the Year by his chapter of the American Advertising Federation, who also recognized him as Volunteer of the Year. However, Jeff suspects that this recognition was all just a ruse to get him to serve on the organization's Board of Directors. In 2008, he served as President of the organization, guiding the club through one of its most financially challenging years in its history. In addition to his civic activities with AAF Jackson, he is a graduate of the 2009-2010 class of Leadership Greater Jackson. A former adjunct professor at the University of Southern Mississippi (his alma mater), he is also an avid actor and filmmaker, having appeared in several commercials and short films. He produced a short film of his own in 2002 entitled Casey Nordell, and has collaborated with a variety of other area filmmakers on their own projects.
