Roy Sexton, director of marketing for Detroit-based law firm Clark Hill, has been named treasurer-elect for International Board of the Legal Marketing Association. He assumed his position on Jan. 1.
Sexton has more than 20 years of experience in marketing, communications, business development, and strategic planning. He previously held leadership positions at Deloitte Consulting, Oakwood Healthcare (now Beaumont Health), Trott Law, and St. Joseph Mercy Health System.
Sexton was previously a marketing director at Kerr Russell, another Detroit-based law firm, before joining Clark Hill in October 2018. At Clark Hill, he oversees the firm’s communication professionals, guides its communication efforts, and works to enhance brand awareness. Clark Hill has 25 offices, including a location in Dublin and a location in Mexico City.
“I’ve been a member of LMA since 2011 when I made the transition from health care to legal,” Sexton says. “It may sound clichéd, but this organization has become a professional family to me. I have benefited exponentially from my involvement and the opportunities to write, present, lead that LMA has afforded me. I’m beyond thrilled at this opportunity to contribute to the future of this great association, and I look forward to serving our members well.”
Sexton has served as a board member, presenter, and content expert for the association. Most recently, he served as treasurer for the association’s Midwest regional board of directors.
The association was founded in 1985, and more than 90 percent of the largest 200 U.S. law firms employ an association member. It brings together specialists at all levels and from firms of all sizes.
