CEO of The Williamson Family
A seasoned marketing expert, Jodi Williamson spent 23 years at Epsilon, the nation’s largest direct marketing agency. Beginning her career at Epsilon in 1988, Jodi played a key role on the senior management team of Epsilon’s Agency Services Division prior to retiring in 2011.
As a leader in the client service organization, Jodi played a variety of roles, lending strategic oversight and providing team leadership that fueled the acquisition and customer retention efforts of dozens of national brands including Home Depot, MCI Telecommunications, Target and the American Cancer Society. During her last eight years at Epsilon, she worked in a business development role – identifying, qualifying and cultivating agency relationships with leading clients in multiple industry sectors.
Jodi was a natural choice for the Inaugural Advisory Board of the Frank T. and Sue Mayborn College, as she has contributed to the success of the School of Journalism for more than a decade. Bringing both her knowledge and enthusiasm to Dr. Busby’s Cases and Direct Classes as a guest lecturer for 15+ years, Jodi continues to share her time with students and is frequently named as the class’s favorite speaker.
Since retiring from Epsilon, Jodi has joined the ranks of the Self-Employed -- turning her passion for antiques into a thriving group of inter-connected small businesses. Jodi Williamson Appraisals provides personal property appraisals for insurance, loss, charitable donation or estate purposes; while Jodi’s Attic focuses on buying and selling Victorian era antiques, and managing estate liquidations.
In addition to her business obligations, Jodi is very involved in the Denton community, and currently serves as the Secretary of the Denton Lady Elks (BPOE #2446) and as the President of the Denton High School Fillies Booster Club.
She and her husband, Allen, live in Denton, TX with their high school aged twins Garrett & Rachel. Their older son, Justin, lives in Denver, CO.
