OOH Owner Today —Hughes Outdoor Media
Hughes Outdoor Media was founded in 2002 by Stephen Hughes and offers a diverse mix of signage including static displays, digital displays, and mobile advertising. The business currently owns and operates over 100 outdoor displays across Virginia and North Carolina. Their digital displays offer messages that rotate every 10 seconds and can have up to six advertisers share each location. Ads on Hughes’ digital displays can run for as little as one day. Their static bulletins and poster billboards are primarily located on major highways and high-traffic interstates and their typical ad campaigns span 4 to 52 weeks.
The business’ founder and CEO, Steve Hughes, grew up in the OOH business and carries on the legacy of his father, Bob Hughes, who founded an OOH company all the way back in 1971. Truly dedicated to the industry, Hughes is involved in every aspect of the OOH field and has been president of the Outdoor Advertising Organization of Virginia since 2000. Additionally, Hughes has a bachelor’s in finance from Virginia Tech and a master’s in business administration for Virginia Commonwealth University.
