Richard Rhodes

Richard Rhodes

President

Do you know any “middle children”? You know the type...someone with over achieving older siblings and adorable younger siblings. Well, Dick Rhodes is the middle child—on steroids! He is child number eight…...of fifteen. That’s right, Dick has seven older siblings and seven younger siblings!!! (It’s safe to assume his parents didn’t have cable TV.) It’s no wonder then that Dick has always been a marketer. How else do you distinguish yourself in a family that could field it’s own football team? We’ll learn more about Dick and his unique story in coming issues.

Bobby Hart

Bobby Hart

An outdoor advertising career that began in 1982, Bobby Hart is in his 4th decade in the industry. "I remember the day in August of 1982 when A. B. Isbell hired me, he made the statement - "if you are here a year from now, you will be in this business for life". There were never more truer words spoken. Bobby handled sales for Outdoor Communications in West Tennessee from 1982 until October 1998 when Lamar purchased OCI. From 1998 until his retirement in December 2011 Bobby held positions of sales manager, Vice-President & General Manager and regional real estate manager at Lamar. His retirement was short lived as he became the Vice President of Development for Stellar Outdoor in February 2012. In February of 2015 Bobby joined Dusty's Outdoor Media and currently handles the sales and operations of each of the Tennessee and Missouri markets which consists of over 100 billboard faces.

Micky

Micky

Micky started his career in outdoor in May of 2000. Micky has a long history in the sales arena. Micky was intrigued when an opening was available with Lamar in May of 2000 for a real estate manager. Well, the rest is history. He worked for Lamar in Paducah for 18 years. He was responsible for the real estate segment of the outdoor business for the Paducah Market. Micky was responsible for scouting for new locations to build and lease renewals. With Micky’s sales experience, Steve Lawrence, the GM gave me another task: Sales. As a people person as Micky was, he made it awesome and fun. With some restructuring within Lamar, Micky decided that he needed a change. That’s when Micky was introduced to Dusty’s Outdoor Media. He joined Dusty in April of 2018 and was hired as the Regional Director of Real Estate company wide. Dusty’s Outdoor has currently completed over 13 new builds and have over 15 locations on the schedule to expand the company’s inventory. Micky is also actively involved in the sales and operations in the Kentucky Market. Micky enjoys his home improvement projects, his grandkids, and time by the pool.
