Mike Crawford, Founder & CEO, M/C/C
Mike Crawford is the founder and CEO of marketing agency M/C/C. Back in 1986 Mike created an entirely new kind of advertising agency and public relations firm, one that focused exclusively on technology clients. At that time, this level of specialization was unheard of, but M/C/C grew into the Southwest’s number one advertising and public relations agency for technology companies and one of the top high-tech advertising agencies in the country.
In 2006, Mike diversified the agency’s client base to include non-technology clients as well, expanding into industries such as energy, insurance, government, finance, retail, health, security and entertainment.
Today, M/C/C continues to evolve under Mike’s direction. M/C/C was recently ranked as number nine for both the largest advertising and public relations agency in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
In addition to running M/C/C, Mike is a partner of Chisholm Trail Grass-fed Beef, a supplier of quality, grass-fed only beef, which have never been given hormones or antibiotics. He also co-owns Red Peak Ranch, one of the locations where Chisholm Trail longhorn cattle are free to roam its pastures.
