AdAge Darling Allen & Gerritsen Plots Move to Boston’s ‘Innovation District’

By Kiran Aditham 

Sounds like it was a big day at the office of Allen & Gerritsen, which just topped AdAge‘s “Best Places to Work” list and will soon have a new home according to an announcement made today by agency CEO, Andrew Graff. A&G’s top exec has revealed that the 120-strong agency will be moving offices from Waterton, MA to the “Innovation District” on the South Boston waterfront in September 2012 and expects to add 50 more staffers by the time the transition is complete.

In his statement, Graff said, “Creativity, technology and curiosity are at the heart of Allen & Gerritsen’s core. That’s why the Innovation District will be the perfect home for our agency.” A&G’s CEO seems like a Beantown supporter through and through as his agency not only counts local clients including the Celtics, Ninety Nine Restaurants and Bright Horizons Family Solutions, but he’s also on the board of the Greatest Boston Chamber of Commerce and is the chairman of the Ad Club of Boston.


Among other things, Allen & Gerritsen’s Innovation District digs will house the agency’s in-house production studio and allow for expansion of its Digital Incubator.
