Kerry M. Lenny
As one of the original founders of Design Source, Kerry Lenny, managing partner and majority partner, has helped the company develop from its early years as a design firm to a dynamic multi-media provider. Leveraging her experience from over two decades in the advertising and marketing industry, Kerry’s media buying and sales capabilities on a variety of different platforms, content development and project management skills perfectly complement the company’s marketing and creative services.

Kerry started her marketing journey immediately after her graduation from UMBC and hasn't stopped to look back in almost 20 years. This forward momentum has served her well in the ever changing marketing world and she continues to find new and innovative ways that Design Source's clients can reach their audiences.

Her English and photography degree has served her well over the years as she has collaboratively written content and helped design the wireframe for such websites as Princeton Sports, Guilford Gardens and Columbia Academy; multi-media campaigns for developer General Growth Properties (formerly The Rouse Company) for the communities of Emerson, Stone Lake, Downtown Columbia and the Fairwood Community; and multiple ad campaigns including East Baltimore Development Inc., Baltimore's largest redevelopment project featuring innovative greenhab homes designed to preserve the finest architectural elements of the homes while updating the features to allow for energy efficiency, low environmental impact, and cost savings for residents.
