AAF Tuscaloosa and PRCA of West Alabama welcomed Josh Loebner, the Director of Strategy for Knoxville-based advertising agency Designsensory in October. He is the author of the blog, advertisinganddisability.com and is a noted speaker and resource for journalists and industry leaders, most recently featured as an industry expert in New Mobility magazine’s cover story on advertising and disability. Josh spoke on the subject at the Forum on Workplace Inclusion alongside Singleton Beato, EVP of the 4A’s.
In 2016 he was elected to a three-year term on the City of Knoxville Mayor’s Council on Disability Issues and served as the 2015/2016 AAF District 7 Mosaic Chair. He is also a contributing author of a textbook on advertising and disability to be published in 2017, and teaches upper level communication courses as adjunct faculty at King University.
He is partially blind and visually impaired, which gives him a unique perspective and he always clearly sees the best in everyone.
