Pipitone Group > 30th Anniversary

 

We're GREATful for 30 years!

What started as a one-person design firm out of a Northside townhome has grown into a successful, integrated marketing agency of 50 team members. We have developed lasting relationships with our client partners, built an agency culture of collaboration driven by passion for this industry and given back to our community through volunteer work and charitable giving.

And that's not going to change. We're thrilled to celebrate 30 years, and already looking to the next 30. We can't wait to continue to grow, with our team members, our clients and the community around us.

30 Years. A Great Start. Thank you and cheers to 30 more!
