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.

What We Do

Our position in the marketplace is centered on clients in need of growth. Real growth. Whether it’s more customers, top line revenue, ticket sales, brand awareness and exposure, leads or better shelf-space, JDA uses client growth as the measuring stick at the onset of any partnership or project. Our clients are doing amazing things and we love helping them win. We work selflessly to help them accomplish their wildest dreams.

Core Values

Since 2003, we’ve lived by a set of shared values focused on seeing our clients succeed.

These values are inspired by two of the greatest people in history- Joseph and David from the Old Testament.

of Dreams

You have a big dream. We’re here to translate that idea into measurable action, growth and results that fulfill your mission.


As your partner, we must be allies you can count on. Trusted advisors who will provide sage wisdom, effective direction, and wise counsel. We are by your side when the stakes are the highest.


At JDA, we want to be courageously creative with every task, every campaign, and every assignment. Every deliverable. Every day. With us, we don’t take plays off- and the results are better for it.

We fulfill our mission when we
help you fulfill yours.
