Albrecht to Lead Freed as President

DALLAS Michael Albrecht, Freed Advertising’s senior vice president since January 2004, has been promoted to president of the 18-person agency, said CEO and founder Gerald Freed.

Albrecht, 45, will supervise all business development, client service and creative activities of the Sugar Land, Texas, shop, Freed said.

“As we’ve grown the agency and added clients beyond our traditional markets, Mike’s leadership and client commitment have been key to our strategic direction,” Freed said.

Albrecht has worked in advertising in the Houston area for 25 years and is a former president of the Houston Advertising Federation, Freed said. For 15 years, he ran his own firm, The Albrecht Agency, before merging with Bates Southwest in 2002. He joined Freed Advertising when Bates’ parent company was sold.
