CarneyCo has been serving clients with award-winning, innovative ideas for decades. The agency, established in 1980 by Skip Carney, has always provided full-service marketing communications solutions for various B2B and B2C companies. By asking the right questions, we get to the root of the problem and uncover our client’s true goals. Then, bold strategies and engaging creative bring it all to life for market-changing results.

Our proprietary ReVision™ process delivers a robust approach to solve client challenges and create even more precise strategy. It’s a valuable process to clearly identify and define issues within operations, sales, and marketing, and it enables clients to focus their resources for better and faster results. ReVision gives us the insight to solve seemingly unsolvable problems and empowers our clients to better serve their clients.

Jessica Carney McKnight, our president — and Skip’s daughter — was born into advertising. Her dad put her to work in newspaper, radio, and TV commercials as a child, and she followed in his footsteps with a Journalism and Mass Communications degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Heels!). Making her home in the Triad, she has worked for over 20 years within leading agencies in Greensboro and Winston-Salem, NC. In 2018, she joined CarneyCo to lead the family business, setting up an office in the Triad.
