Judy Sargent, Founder & Process Expert

My name is Judy Sargent and I have over two decades of advertising and corporate marketing experience at both large and small companies. In my early years of advertising at WHM&G and WestWayne, I mastered the basics of trafficking multiple projects for multiple clients in a fast paced environment. I then moved forward to ASO where I was given the opportunity to branch out from my basic traffic duties and was given the title The Governess of Traffic.

At ASO, I became intimately involved with the operations and financial processes of the agency along with being given my first opportunity to try my hand at account management. My next venture took me out of ad agencies to the corporate world of marketing. I began working with a land developer as their account, traffic and production manager. This company decided to move to Orlando shortly into my term and although I was invited to continue with them in Orlando I decided Atlanta was where I wanted to stay. Along with 3 of the creative staff, I decided to move to another land developer that did not currently have an internal marketing team where I developed processes from scratch and I again played the role of account, traffic, print production and general operations manager.

With the turn in the economy beginning and seeing the downswing in land development, I ventured off on my own and started Sargent Workflow Solutions in November of 2007. I know that it is highly important to be as efficient and profitable as possible. This is now my goal to provide companies with the tools and processes to do so!
