Vice President of Business Development
MY LIFE AT GLOBE RUNNER:
My philosophy has always been to be transparent with my clients and to do what’s best on their behalf. Globe Runner’s core values exemplify what I believe has made the company so successful. We put clients first and lead with integrity. As the Vice President of Business Development, I love meeting new people, creating new partnerships and long-term client relationships to help them achieve their business goals.
Linda White began her career in digital marketing in 2009, ultimately becoming Vice President of Business Development at Online Performance Marketing. In February, 2018 Linda was promoted to President with the rebranding of the agency to Accelerate Online Marketing, Inc. In the fall of 2019, Accelerate closed and Linda joined the Globe Runner team.
Prior to joining Accelerate, Linda spent 15 years in publishing, working in the education, corporate, and trade markets. She spent eight years in the computer publishing industry, developing strategic programs across multiple brands for national retailers such as CompUSA, Fry’s Electronics, Barnes & Noble, Office Depot, Costco and Sam’s Club. She ran national sales teams, as well as developed national service marketing programs. Her last 4 years in publishing were in online learning to the education and corporate markets, so moving into online marketing was a natural extension.
One of Linda’s passions is volunteering. Linda is a founding member of Women for Orphans Worldwide (WOW), an auxiliary of Orphan Outreach. She has traveled to Guatemala twice on mission trips to serve children in need and has been on the Board for the past 10 years. Linda served on the American Advertising Federation Board (AAF) for 5 years. In 2019 Linda was a part of the team that won 1st Place in Membership from AAF National and helped AAF Dallas win Club of the Year, beating out 200 clubs nationwide. In 2018 Linda was the recipient of the AAF Shining Stars Award, which recognizes the top women in advertising that year in the Dallas community.
Linda is the proud mom of two children, Matthew, (a fellow Aggie – Whoop!) and Amanda, (RockChalk), who she enjoys traveling with, and which may or may not include a few winery visits. She comes from a large family and loves to entertain. A personal goal is to travel to all 50 states – only 4 to go! And, to see more of the world when she can. On weekends you can find Linda walking her dog, Tex, binge watching whatever she recorded, and enjoying brunch with friends.
