Gatesman, one of the Northeast’s premier marketing communications agencies, has become the exclusive Pennsylvania partner of AMIN Worldwide, an approximately $2 billion alliance of more than 50 independent marketing agencies across the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.
Through the partnership, Gatesman will have access to extensive industry experience, survey data, professional development opportunities, both nationally and around the world. By joining the alliance, which only accepts non-competing, top-tier agencies, Gatesman will now have the unique opportunity to collaborate with 3,000 industry-leading marketers in the United States and in over 30 countries.
“Our AMIN partnership arms us with exclusive national and global resources giving us the ability to utilize partnerships on behalf of our clients in markets throughout the world,” said John Gatesman, CEO, Gatesman. “We look forward to learning from and growing with this incredible network of industry change-makers. It’s an exciting time for us.”
AMIN was established in 1932 with the goal of creating a global network of agencies that could offer insights into local markets and share unique industry expertise.
Gatesman joined AMIN following a thorough application and vetting process. Doug Barton, Americas President, AMIN, believes Gatesman’s addition to the network will be greatly beneficial to other AMIN members.
“Our board conducted a rigorous investigation and review process of Gatesman,” said Barton. “It quickly became clear that Gatesman would be a fantastic asset and help strengthen our global network. They have a broad range of industry experience and an impressive history of producing results-driven work.”
AMIN Worldwide is the second global network to expand the agency’s reach on an international level. In March of 2016, Gatesman’s public relations and social media practice became the exclusive Pittsburgh partner of IPREX, a $350 million network of communications agencies with 1,800 staff and 115 offices worldwide.
