Bo McDonald

Bo McDonald

President

Laissez les bons temps rouler! Translated as “Let the good times roll,” this Cajun expression captures the personal and professional philosophy of Bo McDonald, founder and president of Your Marketing Co, a creative and strategic marketing agency for those in the financial services industry. With a diverse client base that stretches from coast to coast and personal residences in two separate states, Bo takes pride in finding new ways to challenge the complacent comfort of the status quo.

After beginning his professional career as a radio DJ in Upstate New York, Bo capitalized on his communication skills by starting his own marketing company. For the next five years, he partnered with owners in the auto, real estate, and hospitality industries. But when the U.S. and global economies experienced a recession in 2008, Bo embraced the challenge by re-focusing his company’s mission and serving credit unions and community banks, organizations committed to helping people protect themselves against similar financial downfalls.

True to form, Bo’s community focus and professional enthusiasm extend beyond a single location. While his primary residence and YMC headquarters are nestled in the revitalized beauty of Greenville, South Carolina, Bo and his wife, Amber, are also part-time residents of New Orleans, where they enjoy immersing themselves in the vibrant music, art, and culinary experiences of the Big Easy.

When he’s not working in his South Carolina office, Bo is most likely sitting in a client’s office, helping them develop strategic plans for growth. When he needs to rest and recharge, it’s a safe bet you’ll find him in New Orleans listening to a new band in the French Quarter, indulging his love of art on Royal Street, or entertaining friends in his backyard in historic Algiers Point.

In addition to leading one of the fastest growing marketing firms in the financial services industry and managing successful web design and digital marketing company, Bo is a sought-after speaker and a tireless champion of the nonprofit community. His civic engagement includes operating two companies that provide affordable housing in Greenville, SC, sitting on the boards of multiple nonprofit agencies, and serving as a member of his personal credit union’s supervisory committee.
