Who We Are

Founded in 2005, The Herb Gillen Agency is a full-service marketing communications agency based in Upper Arlington, Ohio. The agency provides advertising, PR and marketing services to clients locally in Columbus and Central Ohio and throughout the U.S. The agency is also known nationally for their work with air shows, performers and aviation-related clients.

Our philosophy is based upon a discipline-neutral approach to marketing. We don't believe in the "old school" approach of running the same standard game plan for every client. We have long embraced a multi-disciplined methodology where we approach each situation with a blank sheet of paper and tailor the absolute best solution to meet each client's specific needs.

While we work with many clients on short-term projects, we really enjoy long-term partnerships where we can immerse ourselves into our clients' marketing and, in many cases, become their off-site marketing department.

While we believe the creative product needs to be mind-blowing, we also believe strategic considerations should drive the creative process. Strategy should be based on information and should be driven to achieve objectives.

Our goal every day is to create strategies, programs, tactics and creative that help our clients succeed. We expect our work to achieve the meaningful results our clients desire.
