Full-service agency Tombras is setting up shop in Atlanta to service three new clients that are based there.
The Atlanta office is being led by creative director Silver Cuellar III, who joined from Brunner. Earlier in his career, he worked at agencies including BBDO, Firehouse and VWA.
The opening comes on the heels of new wins for Tombras, which is based in Knoxville, Tenn., with offices in Charlotte, N.C., and Washington, D.C., as well. The agency was recently named creative AOR for fast-food chain Zaxby’s, and was also appointed creative and media AOR for the PGA Tour Superstore as well as Kamado and Masterbuilt grills. All are based in Georgia.
The new office currently has 12 staffers, but the goal is to grow it to 20 by this fall.
“Atlanta is a market we’ve always had a presence in through our clients, but winning these three new marquee brands made opening shop there an easy decision,” Dooley Tombras, president of Tombras, said in a statement. “The talent base is incredible, and having access to that pool will allow us to scale our agency faster since we are in a rapid growth mode.”
