AAFB President Announcement

We’re proud to announce that Courtney Black, Sr. Account Executive at GKV, has been named President of the American Advertising Federation Baltimore (AAFB).

Courtney started with GKV in 2011 and has expertly serviced accounts such as PANDORA Jewelry, Molina Healthcare, Medifast, DSM Nutritional Products, MJHS, Health Alliance, and Columbia Association.

But Courtney’s work goes far beyond the day-to-day as she is actively involved in countless GKV social activities including planning the annual Halloween party, complete with decorations, costume contest, and food. It’s no surprise that Courtney’s proudest moment was winning the prestigious GKV Chili Cook-Off in 2018.

Courtney’s involvement with AAFB began in 2012. Since then, she has worked her way up through the ranks from an ADDYs committee member to board member to serving as Secretary for the past 2 years. Planning the ADDYs each year has been her favorite experience. And in 2019, Courtney was awarded the AAFB Crystal Prism award.

As President, Courtney is most looking forward to developing a robust programming pipeline of educational, professional development, and networking events virtually (and hopefully soon in person too)!

We applaud Courtney’s hard work and dedication. We know she’ll be a huge asset to the industry.
