Cody Walker, born in Wyoming; comes from a long family tradition of cowboys, cattle ranchers and oil men. It was obvious from an early age that Cody was different. One day after securing 50 cents in venture capital from his mother, Walker Inc. was born. Cody set off with a red wagon full of lemonade and mud pies and set up shop on the corner next to his house. After two days of no sales, frustrated and near bankruptcy, Cody was about to throw in the towel when a neighbor stopped by and said Boy, you're never going to sell anything without a sign. After creating a beautiful, attention-grabbing banner and selling five wagon loads of goodies, an adman was created.
Cody went on to get an Art Degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. He started his career at BBO in Dallas working on Source Services and Auto One. Then an opportunity at Leo Burnett/Moroch had him working on McDonald's, Oldsmobile, Mrs. Baird's and Zed. Cody then joined The Richards Group/Latitude, where he worked on The Shops at Willow Bend, International Plaza, 7UP, Schweppes, Baylor Health Care System and EpicRealm. He went on to Schawk on site at Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages, where he worked on Dr Pepper, Sun Drop, Slush Puppie, Country Time, Canada Dry, Mott's, and Snapple. Since landing at Brand Agent, Cody has worked on Doritos, SunChips, Flat Earth, Cheetos, Lay's, and True North brands. His creative work continues to grab attention and sell product.
When he's not at work, Cody still likes to play in the mud, only today he calls it sculpting. Cody and his wife, Jessica, enjoy taking their two labs, Sadie and Jager, on weekend adventures. Stopping in small towns along the way, they all enjoy antique shopping and stirring up debates in diners and coffee shops.
