Our Beginning

A Note from Glenda English

In 2012 GMc+Company Advertising celebrated 25 years in business. For a boutique agency in a mid-sized media market like New Orleans, this is more than something to celebrate. It’s something to shout about. Honestly, it’s tough making it in a town that’s home to all of one Fortune 500 company, a place where the competition for business is fierce and where a change in the weather can end up changing your world forever. In 1987, I was a recent graduate with a degree in communications, a love for advertising, and a ton of confidence. What I didn’t have was a job. So I went searching at agency after agency, looking for a start. No such luck. With twelve hundred dollars I’d saved from a freelance writing project, I signed a lease on a storefront space in the city’s Warehouse District, hung a sign, got a phone line, and went to work. No turning back. No Plan B.

Within six months I had my first national account, Barq’s Root Beer. My love for the creative challenge and for working with my clients made it possible. Luck played a role as well—not the kind of luck you wait around for, but the kind of luck you make, the providence that comes from committing to an idea and refusing to fail.

While GMc+Company started with my vision and bears my name, our work has always been the result of incredible, intense, gifted collaboration. I’ve hired and groomed dedicated people through the years, often those that others refused to give a chance.

From day one, we’ve stayed focused on our clients’ challenges instead of our own. We’ve handled accounts across a variety of industries and grown considerably, both in size and in expertise. And we’ve won awards, most proudly for projects where we insisted on breaking new ground instead of following a script.

And we keep it real. When it comes to having either success on paper or success in reality, we always work for the latter.
