Owner and Publisher – Collinsville Daily News

Jackie Duty is a Chilean author, speaker, marketing consultant, and publisher of the Collinsville Daily News. Jackie began her career at a community newspaper twenty years ago. After learning about marketing and advertising, she moved to the automotive sales division at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. A few years later, she was managing that 22-million-dollar division through the biggest shift in the newspaper industry as automotive dealers around the country were filing bankruptcy. In the observation that the landscape was changing, she moved through various divisions helping to strategically grow with mergers in the recruitment, retail, and classified division. She managed the growth of Stltoday.com, contributing to a 10-million-dollar growth program. Over the next several years, Jackie would manage the digital divisions at 11 radio stations across St. Louis with a team of over 50 sales reps across the radio brands. She also invested time learning the dynamic of television as she worked at Fox 2 News. With her passion to really understand how to grow companies, she launched her own marketing agency. This created opportunities for her work with many communities on big projects such as the Great Race in Kirkwood and with every media company across the St. Louis Metro area. After selling her first agency, she worked undercover with a community growth initiative launching several companies. This led to her time as a Chief International Development Director at an international academy where she launched the Entrepreneur program. She has also served as a shark tank panel judge on several shark tank contests including the Kirkwood School District and the Small Business Development Center. Today, she owns multiple companies that include a full-service digital agency and media corporation. She is the owner and publisher of the Collinsville Daily News. Her passion is to lock arms with a community and help business owners from every background find creative solutions to tell their story and grow their company.
