DETROIT, MICH. – OCTOBER 21, 2013 – Lowe Campbell Ewald, one of the nation’s longest-standing marketing communications agencies and the U.S. hub for worldwide network Lowe and Partners, announced that it is opening an office in New York City as the agency continues to expand its U.S. footprint. Sal Taibi, most recently General Manager at Deutsch New York, is being named President of Lowe Campbell Ewald’s New York office. He will report to Jim Palmer, CEO of Lowe Campbell Ewald. The full-service agency is expected to open its doors in January 2014 and will include clients Taibi and his team have worked with previously.
“Lowe Campbell Ewald is an agency with a strong heritage and an
integrated full service offering that drives great business results for
its clients. This combination has already begun to show results as the
agency complements Lowe’s international network,” said Michael Wall, CEO
of Lowe and Partners. “Being able to front those capabilities out of
New York alongside the existing U.S. locations should prove an
attractive proposition for both national and international clients. Sal
Taibi is a natural choice to lead New York given his experience in the
market, the strength of his client relationships and his intimate
knowledge of Lowe.”
“Our new presence in New York speaks to the
commitment we have to Lowe and the momentum our agencies are building
together,” said Palmer. “Our New York office will bolster our national
footprint from coast to coast. With offices in Detroit, Los Angeles, San
Antonio and now New York, plus Lowe’s international talent and
distribution channels, Lowe Campbell Ewald is poised to better help
clients navigate the ever-evolving global media and marketing
“I am looking forward to building an agency with
such great partners,” said Taibi. “Through Lowe, its international
expertise and presence in fast-growth markets is a huge benefit to U.S.
clients. Lowe Campbell Ewald’s four offices will make up a truly
national network and great launching pad for global marketers based
outside the U.S.”
On July 9, it was announced that Campbell
Ewald would become the U.S. hub for the Lowe and Partners Worldwide
network. Since that time, the agencies have worked hand-in-hand on
shared clients and new business opportunities. Also adding to Lowe
Campbell Ewald’s success are several key new business wins – including
Cadillac, Atkins, Western Governors University and the Detroit Lions.
Earlier this year, Lowe Campbell Ewald announced it was relocating to
downtown Detroit after 35 years in the suburbs. The agency is expected
to move into to the J.L. Hudson Warehouse at Ford Field in January 2014.
Both the Detroit and New York office of Lowe Campbell Ewald will
feature cultural elements that speak to the agency’s storied 102 years
of history and new era of innovation.
