Jimmy Cooper

Regional Director of Sales & Marketing

Today is not just another day. It is a new opportunity, another chance, a new beginning. Embrace it!

There’s an art to creating a truly memorable client experience. And it begins and ends with engaging each individual on a personal level. As a Regional Director of Sales & Marketing, Jimmy Cooper is continually on the lookout for potential ways to find new clients and partners, to understand their definition of an amazing experience, and make it happen.

With 25 years of sales and marketing experience under his belt, Jimmy joined McKibbon in 2015 and was named 2018 Sales Leader of the Year. He’s proud to be the face of the McKibbon family while building authentic relationships in each community he serves. Whether he’s volunteering his time to help the homeless or attending a networking event, his mission each and every day is to share our story and invite potential partners to become a part of it.

But no sales director is an island, and working alongside his amazing team is one of the best parts of Jimmy’s job. He takes great pride in working with others to achieve common goals and objectives.

Make no mistake, though, he’s as passionate about life as he is about his work. He loves spending time with his kids and playing golf as often as possible — especially if it’s in his favorite place, Athens, Georgia.

Whether it’s a happy customer, a team member who just got a promotion, or his family, putting a smile on people’s faces is one of his favorite things in life. And if you want to return the favor? Shout GO DAWGS! as you pass by.
