Leo McDonald

The Digital Kahuna

Leo has spent more than 40 years in leadership with print and digital advertising companies, including national sales director with Meredith Corporation, publisher of Better Homes & Gardens, Ladies’ Home Journal, and Family Circle. He built and led Mission Advertising Group, worked with BeliefNet and Patheos (now Radiant), and founded KingdomWerdz, a faith-based marketing and consulting company. All that experience has equipped him for his role with Inspire Media Group.

Leo has always been an audience builder, from women’s online communities to faith-based consumers. After 30 years in sales, marketing, and advertising, that experience now allows him to follow his passion—helping advertisers identify and communicate with select Christian consumer markets and church leaders.

Leo loves to help nonprofits, ministries, and faith-based organizations promote their biblical initiatives, connecting them to the right audiences to begin a lifetime bond. The scope of that commitment could include helping a shopper find the correct study Bible that she treasures for years, helping a student choose a college that changes the trajectory of his life, helping parents find information that guides them in raising a child biblically, or introducing someone to a ministry that provides a partnership for their passion to serve God.

Leo is ready to introduce you and your message to our select content-driven Christian audiences and customize an understandable media plan that meets your objectives and provides long-term value.

Susie manages the Business Office, which includes accounting, human resources, and administrative support. Her diligence is motivated by the knowledge that working for the Kingdom requires the very best.

In her free time, Susie enjoys reading, watching movies, and spending time with her family. Although usually laid back, Susie also enjoys a spirited snowball fight, but her most surprising talent is the ability to write backward on an Etch A Sketch! She has the desire to travel and spend more time with her nine grandchildren.
