JayRay is rounding out its destination marketing expertise with the addition of Ryan Millard, who joins the creative and strategic services agency from Oki Golf.

As marketing communications manager for the hospitality company Oki Golf, Millard led strategic development and executed marketing campaigns for diverse golf properties throughout the Puget Sound. He also oversaw internal communication and branding initiatives.

“From the first day at JayRay, Ryan’s desk was covered with sports memorabilia. His passion and consumer marketing expertise, as well as his ability to think analytically and creatively, is a great match for our clients and our team,” said Kathleen Deakins, JayRay president.

Prior to Oki Golf, Millard spent time on the agency side serving a variety of clients including Microsoft, Dell and McDonald’s. He began his marketing career working in professional baseball, where he wore many hats including promotions, business development and marketing operations.

A proud Puget Sound native, Millard graduated from Western Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in marketing. Away from the office, he enjoys spending time with his family, following local sports, and keeping up with his two golden retrievers.
