Schafer Condon Carter/Chicago will celebrate its 20th anniversary on Friday with a big shindig at the agency offices. And its fairly safe to say the shop has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 1989 with a staff of two, zero clients and one apartment -- so the story goes. SCC's billings for 2009 will exceed $150 million from clients in a wide range of brands, categories and channels.
The agency's client roster now includes Armour-Eckrich, Brunswick Corp., Solo Cup Co., General Mills, Cobra Electronics and ConAgra Foods, among others. "There have ben dramatic shifts in the business environment during the past two decades," said Tim Condon, CEO of SCC. "But one thing that's remained constant is marketers' quest for fresh, innovative and creative thinking," added Condon.
