Aaron McClung

Principal, AM

Aaron is the owner and principal of AM, a full-service branding, marketing, and technology firm in North Richland Hills that has been inspiring and equipping its clients to uncover their God-given purpose for decades.

He believes that when your purpose is uncovered and clarified, only then can you create a meaningful brand experience that unifies your team, inspires your audience and delivers the consistency and alignment you’ve been looking for.

When people experience those glimpses of meaning with your brand, they start to connect with your brand in a deeper, powerful way. Aaron believes those meaningful connections can happen with brands when the communication is authentic and built around WHY your organization exists. And it’s not just soft ROI that we’re talking about. You and your team will be inspired, unified, and focused. That means increased productivity, revenue and profit.

Discovering and championing that purpose/why behind what you do is what Aaron is most passionate about, and that's what he'll be sharing with you in his talk.

Drew Pearson

The Original 88

Known around the NFL as “Mr. Clutch,” Drew Pearson rose from a free agent to being recognized as one of the All-Time Favorite NFL Receivers and a member of the coveted Dallas Cowboy Ring of Honor. He was named to the 1970’s NFL Hall of Fame’s All-Decade Team, named to the NFL All-Pro team three times and played in Super Bowls X, XII and XIII.

Drew played an important role in the Dallas Cowboys success during the 70’s and early 80’s. Who can forget Drew’s game-winning “Hail Mary” touchdown catch in the 1975 playoffs against Minnesota? Or the touchdown pass that won the Thanksgiving game in the final minutes against the Washington Redskins? And then in the 1980 playoffs, the Cowboys were trailing Atlanta 27-16 when Danny White and the Cowboys rallied for the win, thanks to a pair of touchdown passes to Drew Pearson.

Since his retirement in 1983, Drew has done extensive work as a radio and television sports broadcaster and is a much sought-after speaker for corporate programs. He has also built and sold a successful business, the Drew Pearson Companies, which manufactured licensed headwear for professional ball teams, Walt Disney and other entities.

Danny Cantrell

CEO, Founder

In 1995, Danny Cantrell become the CEO and Founder of Marketing Response Solutions. It all started with a friendly handshake (and a $300 check to Southwestern Bell Telephone). It may have been the first T-1 line that the installer had ever installed in an apartment and the Dell Server that was shoved into the bedroom closet may have kept the door from closing, but it didn’t matter. Marketing Response Solutions was up and running and the PBX software had begun to take inbound automated calls.

With a successful IVR link, Danny Cantrell created the first “Automated Loan by Phone” service and quickly gained traction with clients like Citibank, Brink’s Home Security, various subprime auto dealers, and any business that needed after-hours lead capture. Danny and his sales staff (friends, college buddies, even his Dad, “The Legend”) were careful to do all of their business over the phone so that it wouldn’t be obvious that all of those local and national media campaigns were being captured in the closet of Danny’s second-floor apartment.

In 2007, in the middle of the Mortgage Crisis, Danny’s brother, Mike Cantrell encountered the SMS/Texting technology that would change everything for the brothers. In 2008, Mike left his 18-year career at Bally Total Fitness to become the president of a newly launched company named Solutions by Text. Leveraging their existing customer-base, they introduced a new, compliance-focused, strategy-driven, cloud-based software platform for directly connecting companies with customers via text message. With more than 400 lenders and utility providers (both publicly and privately held) in over 30 countries, and with more than 30 core partners utilizing their robust, partner-focused API, it’s safe to say that Solutions by Text has become a powerhouse, global brand.

In 2011, the brothers launched Ministry by Text with Aaron McClung and AM Digital which leverages the power of text for ministries around the world.

In 2012, at the age of 47, Danny finally joined the “daddy club” with the birth of his daughter.

Danny’s favorite piece of sports memorabilia is personally signed by Tom Landry of the Dallas Cowboys and reads, “Danny, tough times never last but tough people do. Best wishes. – Tom Landry”
