About Bent Business Marketing

Our Story

Andy is the founder and Creative Content Director at BBM&A. He spent 11 years in the United States Air Force as an Air Traffic Controller. While in the military, he was responsible for the operations at 2 of the world’s busiest and most complex airports, awarded several academic achievements, and demonstrated an unmatched ability to lead his peers. He has overseen and managed construction projects for $16.3M Air Traffic Control facilities. As a civilian, Andy founded BBM&A after noticing how small to medium size businesses were struggling to promote their message, products, and service offerings. He spent the next three years developing marketing and advertising campaigns for local businesses, non-profits, civic organizations, and political candidates. Not only have these campaigns proven to be successful, but everyone involved had fun!
