Mary created Hunt Advertising in 1996, after more than a decade working at the agency level. She has over 25 years' experience in the industry. In 2002, she was awarded the prestigious Silver Medal by the American Advertising Federation. But, more than any award, Mary is proud of the talented team she has assembled for Hunt Advertising. She enjoys watching these creative professionals grow and excel under her guidance.
Mary loves the flexibility that comes with running her own business, and she uses the resultant free time to serve her community. She's passionate about improving local education and is a current member of the UTPB Community Advisory Board, a former board member of the Education Foundation, the Odessa Chamber of Commerce, and past Chair of the P-16 Regional Council. She's a past President of the Odessa Rotary Club, a Go Red committee member for the American Heart Association, and an active member of the Texas Association of Businesses State Board.
A handyman at heart, Mary delights in fixing things. She's continually surprising her husband by devising MacGyver-like solutions for domestic dilemmas. Not surprisingly, these same skills of creativity, innovation, and problem-solving are the foundation of Hunt Advertising.
"There are no problems, just unsolved opportunities."
Jed was born and raised in the Permian Basin and is rooted in the community. He is a graduate of the Odessa Leadership program and former Vice-President of the Board of Directors at the Permian Playhouse Community Theatre, as well as a occasional onstage performer.
While living in Austin, TX, he got work as an Actor, Production Assistant and Consultant on several movies, worked at the famous Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas, and joined the Gag Reflex Comedy Troupe. But, oddly enough, it wasn't until he returned to his hometown of Odessa that Jed achieved national visibility as a member of the reality show, "Making News: Texas Style."
He has a family history in Television and Advertising that spans three generations.
With experience in traditional and new media for over 6 years coupled with his background in Film & Television Production, Jed continues these passions with Hunt Advertising by combining and expanding his knowledge in the Social Networking medium. In doing so, he helps to make the transition from physical to digital media easy to understand and utilize for companies and advertisers alike.
"Seven days without laughter makes one weak."
Chantel has always had a love for art and design. She developed that passion by studying graphic design at Boise State University where she graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Marketing. After college, she worked independently as a contract graphic designer.
Chantel was raised in Twin Falls, Idaho where she met and married her husband, Chris. Her husband was originally from Andrews, Texas, which made the move from Idaho to Texas much easier. They moved with all of their horses and dog to the Midland area in October 2011.
When Chantel isn't designing, she is team roping with her husband. They share a love of training horses and competing. She agrees with Winston Churchill in that "there is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man" (or woman)!
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
Michael loves to laugh, although he can be very sarcastic at times. He grew up with three sisters, so he has excellent restroom etiquette. Like Nietzsche, he believes, "We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh."

Michael loves to travel and take his backpack to places not many humans dare to trek. He believes it started when his grandparents took him to Alaska for his twelfth birthday. The trip would ultimately lead to his firm belief in the saying, "it's the journey, not the destination."
