SAN ANTONIO, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading national advertising, direct and digital communications agency C-E (Campbell-Ewald) has expanded its reach into the South, opening a new office in the heart of San Antonio. Here to service their USAA client, C-E also recognizes the business opportunities of the San Antonio market and surrounding areas.
C-E, headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, has been in the advertising business for nearly 100 years, creating campaigns for several iconic brands including General Motors, the U.S. Postal Service, U.S. Navy, Kaiser Permanente and recently USAA. When C-E was awarded the contract by locally based USAA, the Agency saw the opportunity to establish an office in San Antonio as a way to enhance their business growth with the thriving San Antonio metro area.
"We're thrilled to join the San Antonio community," said C-E Chairman and CEO, Bill Ludwig. "San Antonio is viewed nationally as a city with a diverse business culture and a strong dedication to community making it a natural fit for our company. In addition, this geographic US location strategically positions C-E to continue our business growth throughout the South Central region."
C-E will officially open its San Antonio office with an invitation-only ribbon cutting ceremony with the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce to be held June 2, 2010, from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., at Campbell-Ewald San Antonio in The Historic Finesilver Building, 816 Camaron St., Suite 100.
The Greater San Antonio Chamber will assist with the ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome C-E to San Antonio. "The Chamber is always excited to welcome new business to San Antonio. Campbell-Ewald, a national agency with such wide ranging business relationships will certainly enhance our community," said Greater San Antonio Chamber President Richard Perez.
C-E has transferred two employees from its Detroit office and the remainder of the staff was hired locally for a total of 15 team members. C-E's San Antonio Managing Director Kathleen Donald said, "I'm thrilled to be leading our team in San Antonio and serving our USAA client. I look forward to supporting the business and local community through our business growth and our C-E Cares charitable and volunteer program."
The San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will also participate in the ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate C-E in San Antonio. "The company's participation in the Hispanic Chamber shows its dedication to the people and history of South Texas, just as it has demonstrated deep roots in the Midwest over the years. We look forward to officially welcoming Campbell-Ewald to San Antonio and helping the company put down its roots in South Texas," said Ramiro Cavazos, President and CEO of the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
