Tungsten Group Finds Value Where Others Don’t

Jim Kirk, The Trib’s media and advertising reporter, reports that there’s a new ad agency holding company in town. Goes by the name of Tungsten Group. Run by some heavy weights. Notably, Tom McConnaughy, who sold his interest in McConnaughy Stein Schmidt Brown to Euro RSCG Partners several years ago. The “M in MSSB” joins former Leap Group executives Fred Smith and George Gier. First purchase, Grant Jacoby, a 60-year old Chicago business-to-business shop.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
