Founding Partner - DevDigital, LLC

Mitch Ballard moved to Nashville, TN in 1992 after graduating from the University of North Texas. Previously an on-air talent in radio and television in his native Texas, Mitch spent the next 16 years in the music business tour managing major national acts, as well as writing songs with some of Nashville´s finest songwriters.

In 1997, while working with hit country artist, Kevin Sharp, Mitch saw the value and need to be on the Internet. With an off-the-shelf web development program, Mitch launched KevinSharp.com. A large number of music based websites soon followed.

After more than a decade of traveling 200+ days out of the year managing artist concert tours, Mitch joined WV Fiber to run DevDigital and stay at home. Shortly after, Mitch and Peter Marcum took over DevDigital as a separate run company.

With a long background in the music business, Mitch quickly developed web-based applications for music booking agencies (currently with 21 clients) and a system to manage concert tours.Rascal Flatts, Jason Aldean, Clay Walker, Trace Adkins, Skid Row and other national acts currently use DevDigital´s technology to coordinate and share all tour logistics with their staff.

Mitch travels to Baroda, India twice a year to work hands on with the DevDigital team that has grown to a staff of 48.

In his spare time, Mitch enjoys the outdoors, is an avid mountain biker, tools western style leather and and plays occasional gigs with his 10 piece western swing band Mitch Ballard and The Western Swing Machine.
