They're still here. That's the message Horizon Media wants to drive home as it celebrates its first decade as one of the few remaining independent media services companies.
A billboard visible from Horizon's New York offices was provided by Eller Media. The sign went up last week at the corner of 38th Street and Third Avenue and will remain there for at least 60 days, said shop president and CEO Bill Koenigsberg.
The copy reads, "Horizon Media. The marketing driven media services company. Happy 10th Anniversary."
"It's a thank-you to all our employees and clients. It's nice to see that we're still here and growing," said Koenigsberg.
And so they are. Horizon's largest client is Geico Insurance, and its billings have nearly doubled from $250 million in 1998 to more than $450 million in the year so far.
