What Makes Us Different

From the beginning, mcgarrybowen was built differently, on the simple premise that clients deserve better. So we built a company committed to delivering just that. A company that believes, with every fiber of its being, that it exists to serve clients, build brands, and grow businesses. 

We are gracious and uncommonly tenacious at the same time. We think the only award that really matters is the growth of a client’s business. We don’t have a signature creative style and are not wed to any predetermined media solution. We are smart and strategically driven thinkers digging into our clients’ businesses with a unique perspective to help solve their toughest challenges. We succeed by doing what’s right for the brand, the client, and, most importantly, their business.

We practice something more than mere “integration.” Maybe it should be called “unification.” We built an agency from the ground up—organically—with a single-minded focus on creating big ideas and organizing ideas. All that, and an equally adamant focus on delivering those ideas anywhere and everywhere customers interact with our brands.

Our History

In 2002, mcgarrybowen was founded by three partners who held top leadership positions at some of the world's most accomplished advertising agencies. They founded mcgarrybowen on the belief that the agency should exist to serve clients, build brands, and grow businesses.

Less than a decade later, their determination to hold true to this founding belief led mcgarrybowen to be named Agency of the Year by Advertising Age in 2009, and again by both Advertising Age and Adweek in 2011. Today, mcgarrybowen remains an independently operating agency network, built lean and smart to deliver the speed and unique thinking our clients rely on.
