A marketing professional with over twenty years of experience, Mike started working as an errand boy in his family’s advertising agency. After graduating from Southern Methodist University (Dallas, TX) in 1984 with a BFA in Television/Radio and Film Production, he began his professional advertising career at a small agency in Dallas, Texas. Soon thereafter he moved back to his hometown of Davenport, Iowa.
Within eleven years of arrival at the agency, he purchased the company and took over as its CEO and President.
In 1999, Mike’s agency joined forces with the ECCO International Public Relations Network (which Mr. Bawden helped to re-structure and grow) to provide global public relations support to a handful of multi-national clients.
Mike’s experience includes time as an adjunct professor of marketing and advertising at St. Ambrose University and Augustana College as well as being a featured speaker and presenter at several national conferences and international conferences on branding and brand management.
