Burkett Media’s founder, Beau Burkett, saw outdoor advertising as a definite career path at an early age. His parents owned and operated several businesses while raising Beau throughout his childhood. His parents success and drive taught Beau the keys to running a successful business that gave him the inspiration to start his own company that led to Burkett Media’s formation.
While attending college at Texas State University on a golf scholarship, Beau acted on his entrepreneurial passion and started his first billboard company at the age of 18. He quickly built it up and sold for a profit just one year later. This led to the formation of Beau Burkett Media, LP (Burkett Media) in early 2003. After completion of his undergraduate degree in business management, Beau Burkett gained acceptance to and completed the pursuit of his MBA in Entrepreneurship at the Acton School of Business. Beau, now along with the help of his wife Lauren, will continue to enhance the size of Burkett Media and its offering to businesses like yours.
