BRUNNER Promotes Chief Client Officer, Jeff Maggs, to Managing Director in Atlanta
Agency elevates industry veteran to lead and expand presence throughout the southeast

Pittsburgh (August 30, 2017) – For more than 11 years, BRUNNER’s chief client officer, Jeff Maggs, has been a trusted advocate and advisor to the agency’s diverse roster of clients. From home improvement clients like 84 Lumber and Yellawood to healthcare clients like Mylan and GSK, Maggs has shown an incredible ability to drive business results for clients across industries. His proven track record, combined with more than 35 years of advertising agency experience, made him the ideal candidate to manage the growth of BRUNNER’s Atlanta office.

“We looked throughout the country for the right fit and realized he was right here in our backyard,” said BRUNNER’s chairman and CEO Michael Brunner. “There is simply no better person for this position than Jeff. He’s a tremendous asset to our organization and we have the utmost confidence in his ability to grow Brunner’s footprint in Atlanta and across the southeast.”

Maggs’ hallmark, his ability to connect and develop strong relationships with both agency partners and clients alike, will be key as the agency grows in the Atlanta market. The region has proved to be very competitive with a broad range of incredible companies, brands and organizations. And Maggs believes that through a combined team effort, BRUNNER will be able to continue to grow and evolve throughout the region.

“I want people to know BRUNNER in Atlanta is the same company that won a Cannes Lion for this year’s #1 Super Bowl commercial,” Maggs explained. “We’re on the precipice of an incredible new chapter for our agency. Our team in Atlanta has big plans to work with some of the country’s best brands while also growing our partnerships with current clients.”

Maggs originally joined Brunner in 2006 as senior vice president, director of account management and was promoted to chief client officer in 2009.
