Our History

JDA Chairman and CEO Brad Benbow co-founded Rutter Communications, a national advertising sales firm, in 1987. Rutter was an early pioneer for emerging television networks including ESPN, CNN, Nickelodeon and MTV. After the sale of Rutter Communications to Comcast in the early 2000’s, Benbow co-founded JDA Worldwide in 2003 to provide full-service representation to clients in need of exponential growth and national brand presence. Since the turn of the century, JDA has represented countless full-service brands in a variety of sectors and industries.
