As CEO of Allen & Gerritsen, Andrew Graff constantly challenges himself and the people of A&G to charge into advertising’s new era of inventiveness through thoughtful brand strategy, unbridled creativity, high-impact media, and powerful new connection technologies. By strategically combining creativity, technology and media with a top-notch culture, Andrew has helped to redefine the traditional U.S. agency model.
Under Andrew’s leadership, A&G has grown from a boutique shop to one of the nation’s 20 largest independent agencies with offices in the cities where independence was born – Boston and Philadelphia. But Andrew is most proud of the culture A&G has created along the way. A&G was ranked by Advertising Age as the nation’s #1 “Best Place to Work in Marketing & Media” two years in a row, and has also has been named a “Best Place to Work” by the Boston Business Journal, the Boston Globe and philly.com.
Andrew’s A&G achievements have caught the attention of his peers, who elected him to the board of the industry’s leading national association, the American Association of Advertising Agencies, as well as a four-year stint as Chairman of the storied Ad Club of Boston and, most recently, a Board Member of the Philadelphia Ad Club.
