Los Angeles-based ad shop Quigley-Simpson has opened a New York office that will be overseen by the agency’s director of integrated communications Tyler Jennings.
The shop has done work for clients such as Chase, United Airlines and a number of Procter & Gamble brands including Olay, Crest and Oral B.
Asked about its presence in the Big Apple, Q-S CEO Gerald Bagg replied that "The office in New York has the capacity to house about ten full time employees right now, with room to grow and expand, but the office is also used by staffers from Los Angeles who are in New York several times a month to work with clients that are East Coast based or to work with other agencies where we share client responsibilities."
For now, East Coast clients will be jointly serviced by Quigley’s New York and LA offices. “Having a presence in New York gives us the flexibility to be on-site and available at a client's office with greater speed and agility,” notes Bagg.
The full-service agency, started in 2002, now has 150 employees including 40 digital specialists who focus on social eCommerce, digital acquisition, consumer engagement, analytics intelligence, and other online services. The company is a major player in so-called “Brand Response Television,” a form of DRTV.
