ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- GrahamSpencer, a full-service strategic design/communications firm with offices in Rockford, IL, Ridgway, CO, and Hoboken, NJ has announced the opening of its fourth location: in Nashville, Tennessee.
"We at GrahamSpencer have had our eyes on Nashville for many years," said Jay Graham. "We like its energy, its friendly spirit, its sustained growth, its deep sense of community - and we love its identity as America's 'third coast' home of music. We think GrahamSpencer and Nashville will get along like strings on a guitar."
Heading GrahamSpencer's first location in the southeast will be Wade Breaux, a successful 15+ year veteran of the communications world and longtime friend of both Jay Graham and Scott Spencer. Breaux has Rockford roots and his mother, stepfather and brother still live in the Rockford Region.
"We've been looking for an opportunity to collaborate as creative professionals for years," said Scott Spencer.
Breaux's experience spans all aspects of communications, advertising and design. His clients have included world-renowned brands TREK USA, Jos A Bank Clothiers, Monsanto and Jimmy John's and many others. He also has a significant amount of client-side experience, having headed up several marketing departments for private B2C companies. Prior to rejoining Graham Spencer, Breaux served as Group Account Director at Bohan in Nashville, the city's largest agency, where he was responsible for managing all strategic initiatives for Jos A Bank, the 600 store retail clothier.
Prior to that, he served as VP Marketing for Thompson Hospitality, a $400 million restaurant and food service company based in Washington, D.C.
“I am thrilled to be a part of GrahamSpencer's dynamic, talented family," said Breaux. "And, I can't wait to bring our collective energy and skill to the city I love, the music and tourism industries that makes it tick, and the greater South in general. GrahamSpencer is in its 26th year in business in 2013, and I believe there is a growing market in this very cool city for the unique blend of skills and experience the company brings to the table."
