Rick Robinson - Billups
A Member of the Outdoor Advertising Association of America (OAAA) Hall of Fame, Rick Robinson is a life-long Out-of-Home (OOH) Media advocate. He’s also recognized as a public speaker, author and sculptor.
Rick thinks it’s a wonderful thing to wake up at the crack of dawn to watch a new client’s copy get installed in a dynamite location. His 30 years in the business have been driven by passion across multiple disciplines.
He got his start in 1987 as a local salesperson for Ackerley Airport Advertising in Central California, moving on to Business Development Manager at Gannett Outdoor SF & LA, and gaining industry notoriety as National Creative Director for Outdoor Systems in the late ‘90’s. Rick jumped to the agency side in the new millennium opening up MacDonald Media’s LA office in 2001 and building its West Coast roster to $30MM in annual billing over the next 13 years. Seeking new challenges Rick took on a partnership with Billups in March of 2014, now the largest independent OOH Media agency in the country. Portland-based Billups plans and buys OOH Media for ABC, Lyft, Brand Jordan and over 250 other agencies and brands. Rick’s current role is that of Partner/Chief Strategy Officer.
