In 1975 David Stolz left his career in Creative Services with Borden Foods, and three years later his long-time friend and Borden colleague Barney Mead followed suit. They had a vision- to form their own agency utilizing their creative talents and industry know-how to help companies just like Borden with all aspects of promoting their business.
Together, they formed Stolz-Mead Advertising in 1979 as a one stop shop for all types of corporate promotions, from concept and graphic design, through execution… and they were fantastic at it!
Their reputation of creativity and ability to successfully execute unique programs quickly spread, and resulted in growth from a small boutique-style agency to one of the most successful streamlined agencies in the city of Columbus, Ohio. Their award-winning promotions for clients like Cracker Jack and Victoria’s Secret helped them to grow not just their client-base but in staff size as well.
Today, Stolz-Mead employs creative talent who continue to help nationally recognized Brands and companies with every kind of promotion imaginable, from consumer sweepstakes to employee recognition awards, retail point of sale, and event management. Many clients have awarded Stolz-Mead ROFR contracts as they recognize the quality, cost efficiencies and ROI that Stolz-Mead helps them achieve.
Stolz-Mead has won bottom line results for its clients, measured in increased sales, larger profits, and greater cost savings. Just as important is the unsurpassed quality and service, and that’s what has truly set Stolz-Mead apart from others.
Almost half a century later, Stolz-Mead still holds the same vision of partnering with its clients to help solve every type of promotion need. Stolz-Mead looks forward to continued growth and success for the next 50 years. Let us be your partner and show you how it’s done.
