31 Dec Celebrating 50 years of creativity and growth
Celebrating 50 years of creativity and growth
Fifty years ago on July 16, 1969, the Saturn V rocket carrying a crew of brave astronauts was launched from Cape Kennedy, Florida. On that same day, Dick Geary bravely launched Geary Company Advertising Agency. Initially specializing in advertising services for the entertainment industry, Geary Company quickly evolved into the full-service advertising agency that we are today. Below is a walk down memory lane at some of our greatest accomplishments and some of the many reasons why Geary Company is a national leader in the digital advertising industry.
Advertising services fit for a King – Since Day One!
Much like the Saturn V, Geary Company Advertising was off to a rocket start from Day One. The company was born in 1969 when Elvis’ manager approached Dick Geary to promote the King of Rock ‘n Roll’s shows in Las Vegas. Dick Geary eagerly took on the opportunity and did just a masterful job that he attracted the attention of other stars in the entertainment industry. Here are just a few of the many wonderful entertainers we have worked with over the years:
- The Village People
- Wayne Newton
- The Jackson Five
- Steve Martin
- Frank Sinatra
- Donna Summer
We are happy to be on call 24 hours a day!
Our hard work and fierce dedication to excellence are two of the main reasons why so many entertainers and top businesses in Nevada signed on with us. While our normal operating hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 5:00, we know that marketing emergencies often arise in the evenings and on weekends. So we make it our mission to be available for new and existing customers at any hour. We have met some of our most loyal clients by responding to their urgent needs when the majority of businesses are closed. We are truly happy to be on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week!
A stellar leadership team that knows every aspect of the business
For years, Jim McKusick and John Dalrymple have channeled their creative energies and leadership skills to continually propel Geary Company to industry stardom. Since 1979, partner and CEO Jim McKusick has provided innovative direction, media strategies, and day-to-day guidance to our team of employees. Dalrymple’s entrepreneurial background and his expertise with gaming companies is a great compliment to McKusick’s strengths, and Dalrymple is fiercely dedicated to improving sales and marketing initiatives.
Together with a star-studded team of skilled employees, McKusick and Dalrymple work tirelessly to ensure that Geary Company continues to exceed our clients’ expectations. Their heavy involvement in everyday business operations shows their willingness to dive into projects and maintain an understanding of the front line operations that are the heart and soul of our business.
