Paul Allen

Chairman at Allen & Gerritsen, Boston
United States

Summary

Over 25 years ago, Paul Allen began an exciting journey by creating an advertising agency that believed deeply in some fundamental things, that all investments in marketing and communications are strategic business assets and should be treated as such, that agencies get rewarded (and sometimes famous) by helping their clients, not themselves, that great communications emerge from the perfect balance of science and art (aka research and judgment), and that great ideas can come from anyone, anywhere. Today, Paul is the proud parent of one of the country’s leading independent agencies and engaged with some of the brightest minds and exciting clients around. Paul tends to help out with our more complex, business-to-business clients. One of Paul’s core strengths is helping clients make molehills out of mountains. Our B2B approach and principals have been covered in B2B Magazine, Ad Week, Ad Age, as well as vertical industry publications.
