Hunt Media Manager, Lily Hurt, Honored as AAF Memphis’ Unsung Hero

Hunt, a full-service marketing firm located in Oxford, Miss., celebrates Lily Hurt on being selected as the inaugural Unsung Hero award recipient by the American Advertising Federation’s (AAF) Memphis chapter.

The Unsung Hero award “recognizes the crucial - and too often unsung - sales and service side of the industry.” As the first-ever dedicated media manager at Hunt, Hurt founded many processes and procedures that have helped the whole company perform efficiently. Many of these improvements caused ripple effects across the agency, positively impacting other areas of Hunt’s efforts, like media strategy and billing.

A Memphis native, Hurt holds her BBA in managerial finance from the University of Mississippi.

As an integrated marketing firm, Hunt specializes in developing and implementing full-scale creative campaigns for partners in various industries. In 2023, the firm was recognized as one of the world's Fastest Growing Agencies by Adweek. 

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to see Lily recognized with this award. She works tirelessly behind the scenes for our partners,” said CEO & President Will Hunt. “At Hunt, we build great brands, and we attract great leaders. Lily is certainly a great leader, and this distinction is well-deserved.”
