MEREDITH MATHESIUS | CEO
Meredith founded The Leverage Group in 2007 after seeing a need to deliver strategy and savings to local advertisers. Bringing a wealth of expertise, insider experience in advertising sales, and in-depth knowledge of the media and advertising industry, she provides clients targeted ad reach through insightful strategy, media planning, creative direction, social media management and more. Providing the highest level of customer service is top priority for Meredith, and this dedication to quality is reflected in the success of each of her clients.
Meredith received her Bachelor of Science in Business, Marketing Management from Virginia Tech, along with a minor in Studio Art. She began her career in Atlanta, Georgia in cable advertising under the direction of Jeff Stone and David Shannon at Cable Advertising of Metro Atlanta (CAMA). She was promoted to National Sales Manager for the Jacksonville, Florida market through Comcast Spotlight, handling national ad placements and a spectrum of advertising media.
Living in Bristol, Virginia, Meredith puts a priority on family and community. She serves on the Johnston Memorial Hospital Foundation Board, and frequently volunteers at Sullins Academy where her children attend elementary school. With her husband, Ryan, they have two children, Emerson and Merritt—not to forget the two furry family members, Dudley and Lucy. Meredith works hard, but strikes a balance with her personal life as well. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, long walks, yoga, and healthy living.
