Our Founders

Andy Mills and Kevin Whitmer founded Velocity Media Group in 2023 to share decades of experience as journalists who worked on the most important stories in New Jersey. Today, our clients share in that experience, expertise and network of super talented people.

Andy Mills

A dynamic storyteller known for his indomitable spirit, Andy is widely recognized as New Jersey’s best and most-versatile visual journalist. He has documented life-changing stories for three decades.

He shot his first construction documentation job more than 20 years ago. His work directly led to his client winning its multimillion dollar dispute with the New Jersey Department of Transportation.

Andy thrives in complex situations, including war zones, natural disasters and emergency scenes.

Kevin Whitmer

Kevin was the lead editor at NJ Advance Media, where he and his team built NJ.com into one of the largest websites in the United States, averaging more than 21 million unique visitors per month when he retired from daily journalism at the end of 2021.

He spent decades evaluating complicated stories, situations and information to make high-stakes, life-altering decisions — often on tight deadlines.

In 2022 he launched Whitmer Consulting LLC, where he also advises clients on strategic communications and digital media.

Litigation Support That Makes a Difference

According to 2020 Arcadis research, the average construction dispute had $37.9 million at stake — more than twice as much as the previous year. And it took more than 14 months for cases to be resolved. Documenting your construction story through the eyes and instincts of professional journalists helps you avoid expensive, time-consuming disputes. It also helps you comply with contracts that are increasingly requiring third-party photo documentation of jobsites.

Testimonials

Doing documentary work as you go has never been more important. The people who need you the most won’t realize that until it’s too late. And having Andy Mills document your job is eons away from having an engineer with an iPhone take some pictures.”

I’ve known Kevin Whitmer a long time and hired him to help my private businesses after I heard he was leaving journalism. He’s great with people and he’s smart. He’s a creative thinker and problem solver who gets things done. He’s also a guy who listens because he still wants to learn new things.”
