Meet the President
John Tointigh, President
With 15 years of experience advertising and marketing, John has made a career of working with offices to target the right demographic, increasing quality phone calls, which can be converted into profit!.
Beginning his career as a Marketing Manager for a LASIK practice in 2004, John found himself up against some strong competition. Trying several mediums, budgets and messages without moving the needle, it became apparent that fighting the competition on their ground wasn’t the answer. Rather, John found advertising where the competition wasn’t was more effective. Not long after the practice became one of the giants of the market for LASIK, John found himself being pursued by other offices for his services.
If he had value to more than one office, why not be available to more than one office? Since Blackhorse was formed in 2005, Blackhorse has been credited with naming and creating the theme of an entire casino, hosting major events such as Mixed Martial Arts matches, booking major music acts, and producing ads that birth tag lines adopted in the rest of a company’s marketing.
A proud Kiowa-Apache with a family history of creativity, his father, Jackie “Blackhorse” Tointigh is a notable Native American artist whose works have been displayed in museums and by private collectors around the country. John has also been an emcee for several charity events and spoken to the Oklahoma City University Native American Law Students Association.
John currently resides in Chickasha, OK with his wife Keli and their 5 children, Gehrig, Boston, Maris, Nolan and Caroline. John and his wife spend their spare time watching their kid’s play sports, while John also plays competitive adult amateur baseball.
