Ron D. Smith Leaves Legacy For Worthy Publishing To Build Upon

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As Ron D. Smith departs Worthy Publishing and into his next venture he leaves behind a legacy. Worthy Publishing, an independent voice in Christian and inspirational publishing, acquired Freeman-Smith Publishing in 2012. At Freeman-Smith, Ron D. Smith and partner Criswell Freeman spent more than a decade creating and delivering specialty book imprints.

"I have the highest respect for Byron Williamson and his team at Worthy," says Smith. The company has requested that Smith remain as a presence overseeing creative work in product development and long-term relationships with major accounts. Worthy Publishing has also announced the recent hiring of Mark Gilroy as Senior Vice President. Gilroy will manage the rapidly growing Freeman-Smith imprint.

Freeman-Smith reflects a decade of commitment to print publishing for Ron D. Smith. The company's products have been widely distributed through channels as diverse as Lifeway Books and Wal-Mart. Ron D. Smith has been widely credited with having his finger on the pulse of the next big thing, something upon which Worthy can build a future.

For Ron D. Smith, the "next big thing" is accepting the position of President of Reputation Advocate, Inc. located in Franklin, Tennessee. The company provides online reputation management, defense and suppression services for a worldwide client base. "I couldn't be more excited," said Smith. "I have looked for an opportunity to jump the gap into the new digital economy and this position fits me perfectly."

Ron D. Smith will oversee the company's global expansion and focus his initial efforts on marketing and distribution. The company already has several unique affiliate relationships that position it well for growth. Reputation Advocate is privately held and self-funded, a deliberate position that the company has taken, says Steven Wyer, Managing Director for the firm. "We see a fragmented marketplace with little brand recognition at both a consumer and corporate level. Ron brings the depth of experience we have needed to manage our growth and focus," concludes Wyer.

Ron D. Smith serves as President of Reputation Advocate, Inc. He can be reached at 888-229-0746 or by email at
