About Thom King
An accomplished businessman, television producer, filmmaker and author, Thom King began his life journey in Colorado (via Wisconsin), where he studied marketing at the University of Colorado. He graduated from Chadwick University with a BA in environmental studies, then went on to attend graduate school at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he studied intellectual property law.
King began his career in the broadcast industry, eventually becoming the vice president and general manager of five radio stations — KHAY-Country, KBBY-AC, KVEN-News-Talk, KMGQ-NAC and KHTY-Modern Rock — for McDonald Media Group Inc., a division of McDonald Investment Company Inc. He also held the position of regional vice president of sales for the integrated marketing and online division of Clear Channel Worldwide.
While at Clear Channel, King leveraged the tremendous consumer reach and broad appeal of Clear Channel’s local radio brands, as well as entertainment and venue opportunities. He was instrumental in helping Clear Channel capitalize on unique opportunities by converging its radio assets and outdoor assets — with its interactive assets — into fully integrated campaigns that garnered maximum results, effectiveness and efficiency.
In 1992, King founded Southwest Multimedia as an incubator for developing businesses that fit the vision and sensibilities upon which the company was founded — to support aspiring entrepreneurs and small businesses in cutting-edge, zero-carbon-footprint technologies and concepts.
One company that Southwest Multimedia fostered was Multimediary Entertainment Marketing . The company’s goal was to augment (not replace) what consumer brands are currently doing by using selected entertainment properties in music, TV and film to build brand equity with audiences in the appropriate target market. Between 2001 and , Southwest Multimedia built brands by making them part of the entertainment experience through using artists’ likeness, music, tours and creative in retail-driven on-or-off-premise promotions.
In 1999, King founded Steviva Brands. When not envisioning a new stevia blend to help replace the amount of sucrose and high-fructose corn syrup used in food products and food prep, Thom spends much of his time learning and thinking about people’s dietary needs and ways to help improve what we eat. If King isn’t coming up with new and exciting ways to prepare food for friends and family, he is working on a ketogenic diet.
A firm believer in also giving back to his community, King is a member of and contributor to the Portland Boys & Girls Club. He is a volunteer and mentor for the Mercy Corps MicroMentor program and a contributor and participant in the Audubon Society of Portland, Ecotrust and the Wild Salmon Center.
