Loeffler Ketchum Mountjoy has staged its own version of a British invasion, as the Charlotte, N.C., agency has opened an office in the United Kingdom. The purpose of the move is to help with media buys, account service and media relations.
The Continental outpost is headed by Paul Barnett, who will serve as account manager for Cooper Tools as well. That client was the jumping-off point that allowed the shop to make a foray across the Atlantic.
"We've successfully executed international work for other clients from our Charlotte office for years," said agency president and chief executive officer John Ketchum. "Cooper's extensive international needs provides us the opportunity to open the U.K. office, giving expanded service to our other clients, such as the North Carolina Department of Commerce."
