Tampa Time

Tampa agency, Pyper Paul + Kenney, thanks to several recent account wins have brought the new agency’s annual capitalized billings to more than $40 million in just a little more than two years.

“In markets like New York City and Los Angeles, there are plenty of large agencies with talented people at the top, but clients never know if they’re going to get the ‘C Team’ working on their account after the pitch is over and the contract is signed,” said Paul Daigle, president of PP+K. “At PP+K, we are uniting the most talented ad people in the Southeast under one roof, and rock staring it out for all of our clients. There is no ‘C Team’ at Pyper Paul + Kenney.”

Clearly Daigle does not lack confidence. As for “uniting the most talented ad people in the Southeast,” I think Crispin Porter, BBDO Atlanta, West Wayne, McKinney and The Martin Agency might have something to say about that.
