2019 marks the 30th year in business for the Brighton Agency. The Clayton-based marketing communications agency celebrated the milestone anniversary throughout the year by adding to its leadership team, hosting industry colleagues from near and far and continuing to elevate its resources and culture.
“My years with Brighton have certainly been life-changing, and I’m grateful that I get to work at one of my favorite places and with some of my favorite people every day,” says Tina VonderHaar, Brighton president and CEO. “As Brightonians, we thrive in and enjoy a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment, but we also like to occasionally take a moment to have a little fun with one another, and with our clients, outside of a meeting room setting. Our 30th anniversary is a great opportunity to celebrate three decades of ‘the business of creativity’ — and to gear up for the next 30.”
“We owe our three decades of business to our client-partners, who are essential to our growth and success,” adds Scott McClure, Brighton Senior Vice President. “We are committed to helping them build their businesses through strategic thinking and inspired creative.”
Throughout the year of its “Pearl Anniversary,” Brighton continued to foster relationships and create exceptional work, while also taking time for the occasional celebration. A few highlights:
Creative Director Leo Madden has been a member of the Brighton Agency team for 25 years. As its longest-tenured employee, he’s witnessed Brighton evolve from a small, traditional print and broadcast shop to a full-service communications firm with broad digital acumen, a full video and sound studio and a team of social media specialists. “Brighton has deep roots but also embraces change and growth,” he says. “We work hard, but we are family-friendly and flexible, too, with a great mix of personalities and experience levels.”
