I bought Knupp & Watson in August of 2008. It was not exactly the best time to purchase a company, let alone an advertising, marketing, creative communications company. If you’ll recall, that recession thing had just taken off like a rocket around that time. Needless to say, Mrs. Wallman was a very brave soul.
But the company had a great 2009, adding clients, and staff, and we had a hell of a good time along the way. We’ve created some fantastic work, achieved some great successes for our clients, and worked to make it the best place our people will ever work.
Yesterday, we officially became Knupp & Watson & Wallman. (As a co-worker put it, “the ego has landed.” Ha!)
The name change signals the second generation of this 23 year-old company. We’re pushing ideas and creative communications like never before, and are offering more and more web and motion services, in addition to the traditional communications vehicles that have existed since my Grandfather had a shop on Madison Avenue in the 1930’s.
