Justin Downey is President and Head Nerd at JDM Digital, a web design and development agency for B2B organizations in industries like: HR, Energy, Finance, Healthcare, and Technology. JDM Digital clients include national public and private organizations as well as white-label partnerships with larger agencies.
Before founding JDM Digital in late 2006, Mr. Downey worked for a number of mid-sized agencies in the Dallas and Houston markets including The Starr Conspiracy and Graphics Marketing & Communications.
A serial entrepreneur, Mr. Downey also owns (wholly or in part) two companies separate from JDM Digital. Roxanna Oil Company is a Houston-based oil and gas exploration company specializing in unconventional plays. jHost is a business-class web hosting company specializing in semi-dedicated hosting solutions for mid-sized businesses.
Justin graduated from SMU in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts in Advertising with a double focus in Design and Management (the only SMU student ever to do so). He has an advanced background in statistics and computer science, which is why his undergrad took 5 years--at least that's how he explains it.
After graduation, he completed an eMBA certificate from the SMU Cox Summer Business Institute, an intense, 4-month crash course affectionately nicknamed, “Business Bootcamp.”
Justin is an internationally certified sailor, a journeyman blacksmith, a licensed bartender, an accomplished pool player, and a poor (but improving) golfer. He loves technology, science, art, and craft beer.
