About Hutton Advertising, LLC

About Hutton Advertising, LLC

At Hutton Advertising, we believe in the power of knowledge, innovation, and personalized care to transform businesses. Our journey began in 2004 with Practical Programs, Inc., founded by Eric Hutton, a visionary who combines wisdom, a deep knowledge of technology and a deep commitment to community service.

Our Roots and Evolution

The journey started when Eric Hutton established Practical Programs, Inc. in 2004 as a boutique web development and database programming firm, focusing on small custom projects and subcontracting work. Practical Programs was an early adopter of new coding standards and cloud technologies, always staying at the forefront of digital innovation.

In 2011, Eric Hutton expanded forming Hutton Advertising and acquiring a Billboard Connection franchise. This venture allowed us to become experts in out-of-home advertising, placing billboards across multiple states including Arizona, Montana, Missouri, Kansas, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, Kentucky, Iowa, North Carolina, and throughout Tennessee.

By 2018, we chose to part ways with the franchise and serve our billboard clients independently.  In 2020, Practical Programs and Hutton Advertising merged, combining our technical prowess with our advertising acumen to offer a comprehensive suite of services.

The Wisdom Behind Our Success

At the heart of our company is founder Eric Hutton, whose diverse background shapes our unique approach. His father was exceptional with mathematics and his mother is a gifted linguist. With degrees in electrical engineering and environmental engineering and minors in mathematics and music, Eric brings a multifaceted perspective to problem-solving. His experience in environmental engineering and state-level project management has honed his ability to simplify complex concepts and provide clear, actionable solutions.

Eric’s journey mirrors our company’s philosophy of staying curious, embracing challenges, and always seeking to understand our clients’ needs at a deeper level. This approach allows us to not just provide services, but to educate and empower our clients, helping them navigate the complex worlds of advertising and technology with confidence. Eric’s commitment to self-improvement is reflected in our constant pursuit of innovative solutions and industry best practices.


Throughout his life, Eric has been deeply involved in community service, extending his dedication far beyond the business world. From attaining the rank of Eagle Scout in his youth to serving as an adult scout leader, founding a bike advocacy group, participating in Rotary Club, volunteering with religious institutions, and supporting local schools, Eric’s service record is extensive. This commitment to serving others infuses our company culture with a sense of purpose and social responsibility, driving us to not only excel in our business endeavors but also to make a positive impact on our community.
