WAM Celebrates 20 Years of Service With Big Anniversary Gala
Weber Advertising & Marketing founder Jim Weber has been doing things differently for more than two decades - and the agency's success speaks for itself: an evolution from a small "one-man shop" in a 1,800 square foot building in 1996, to a diverse 37-employee team housed in WAM's current 48,000 square feet of space, where the company's annual revenue ($7.63 million in 2014) has soared to the point of earning them recognition as the 5th largest advertising, marketing and PR firm in Central Pennsylvania (Central Penn Business Journal, "16 Lists for 2016").
But WAM's motto - We Care. We Share. We're Always Fair. - and its unique vertically-integrated "we get things done under one roof" work model, aren't in and of themselves the reason why the agency has seen such growth. "It is also the talents and dedication of our staff, and the loyalty of our clients," says Jim. "Without them there wouldn't have been even one year of success, let alone twenty."
Which is precisely why Jim and his wife (and business partner) Jennifer recently threw a huge 20th Anniversary Gala at their offices - to celebrate and honor the many people, past and present, who have played such a integral part in making Weber Advertising what it is today.
On Friday, January 29th, approximately 170 guests gathered at 533 Janet Avenue in Lancaster to dine on fancy hors d'oeuvres and a delicious steak and crab cake dinner, while being entertained by the Todd Fulginiti Trio. There were also plenty of memories shared, including those sparked by a special slide show assembled by WAM Art Director Tony Roda.
For more than five hours, clients, staff, and friends celebrated an accomplishment that's truly been twenty years in the making: the creation of an agency that has become both a fixture in - and a friend to - the local community.
