age: 33 | Senior Media Consultant/Karate Instructor | CableONE Advertising/Lacy’s Shotokan Karate
As a Media Consultant, Zach Norment’s goal is to help area businesses develop content and reach their customers in as many ways as possible to drive sales and help them grow. “I am fortunate to work with an extremely talented creative team and have fun doing what I do,” he said. “In the evenings, I help teach martial arts in our family’s dojo, Lacy’s Shotokan Karate. Karate is my passion, my stress relief, and my motivation.”
Since the higher one goes in karate, the more work it usually takes, Zach is very proud that he has earned his 2nd degree Black Belt in Shotokan Karate. He admits that it has taken him a lot of years of hard work and dedication to reach this goal, but it has definitely been worth it.

For fun, Zach enjoys woodworking and upholstering furniture. “There is nothing better than turning a simple sketch into a beautiful piece of furniture for someone to enjoy for years to come,” he said. “I also love being outdoors and, most importantly, spending time with my wife, Whitney, and children, Raidyn and Westin.” He also stays busy volunteering in the community as a board member for HandsOn Texarkana, a Chamber Ambassador, and a 2015 graduate of Leadership Texarkana, where he serves on the Leadership Team.
Name something about you that very few people know:
“I will do almost anything in public to embarrass my kids and niece, including randomly yelling ‘Bingo’ or dancing! My beautiful wife is no longer affected by this behavior.” ￼
