Andrew Graff, CEO
Andrew Graff has engineered Allen & Gerritsen (A&G)’s ascension from a boutique Boston B2B marketing shop into one of the nation’s Top 20 independent agencies, by emphasizing marketing innovation and creativity, while building a culture that melds fierce independence with a nurturing work-life balance. His most distinguishing attribute as CEO is his resolve to bring the same rigor to workplace culture as to a client’s ROI.

This unique workplace culture has propelled a&g to the top of many “Best Places to Work” lists, as the agency has earned top accolades from the Boston Globe, Boston Business Journal and the Philadelphia Inquirer. The industry’s top trade publication, Ad Age, named A&G the nation’s best place to work in marketing 2 years in a row.

Andrew’s fascination with how technology has disrupted the ecosystem is demonstrated through many leadership positions. He’s a National Board Member & Government Relations Committee Member of the 4As, serves on the National Advertising Review Board and is Chairman Emirates of the Boston Ad Club. He was honored at the Ad Club’s 100th Anniversary Gala as the Future Legend Recipient and was recognized by Bostinno as one of “50 on Fire.”

As a Board Member of the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, Andrew also works to actively recruit new CEOs to the Chamber, as part of the city’s initiative to actively expand the business community. He was honored by the Chamber as a Future Leader in 2004 and heads up the Philadelphia Ad Club’s Creative Collaborative.

Andrew is also a featured blogger for the Huffington Post.
Paul Allen, Chairman
Chairman and founder of a&g. Over 25 years ago Paulbegan an exciting journey by creating an advertising agency that believed deeply in some fundamental things; that all investments in marketing and communications are strategic business assets and should be treated as such; that agencies get rewarded (and sometimes famous) by helping their clients, not themselves; that great communications emerge from the perfect balance of science and art (aka research and judgment); and that great ideas can come from anyone, anywhere.
Today, Paul is the proud parent of one of the country’s leading independent agencies and engaged with some of the brightest minds and exciting clients around. Paul tends to help out with our more complex, business-to-business clients. One of Paul’s core strengths is helping clients make “molehills out of mountains.” Our B2B approach and principals have been covered in B2B Magazine, Ad Week, Ad Age, as well as vertical industry publications.
Joel Idelson, EVP, Branded Entertainment
Tim Reeves, Principal
Tim brings a&g's clients the unique benefits of three distinct careers. Tim was an award-winning journalist with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He became press secretary to Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge in 1995 and served as his chief communications strategist until the administration ended in the wake of the 9-11 attack. During those years, Tim oversaw the press and marketing strategies that helped to make the Ridge Administration one of the most popular in modern PA history. Tim joined Neiman in 2001 and helped to craft and lead successful strategic marketing and issue- and crisis–management PR efforts with retail clients such as Sheetz, Sunoco, and Dietz & Watson, to name a few. Tim ultimately became CEO of Neiman, an experience that enhanced his ability to provide unique problem-solving counsel to the agency's client executives. With a&g's acquisition of Neiman in June 2013, Tim has now returned full-time to his PR and executive-consulting craft.
Gary Greenberg, EVP, Chief Creative Officer
As Executive Vice President & Chief Creative Officer, Gary is responsible for the thinking and creativity of the work a&g produces for our clients. In essence, he is the “Chief Idea Officer” for the company, and is one of the most respected creative minds in Boston’s advertising community.

For 20 years, Gary ran one of Boston’s most highly awarded creative agencies, Greenberg Seronick O’Leary & Partners. When he formed the company in 1983, he became the youngest creative director in the city, and worked on many of the region’s most visible accounts, including Dunkin’ Donuts, Hasbro, LoJack, Spalding Worldwide, and Shaw’s Supermarkets. In the early 1990s, Gary folded GSO&P into a&g, and remained on board as CCO.

Gary’s passion for the creative process may only be rivaled by his passion for rock & roll. Having a background in the arts, he found that collecting rock memorabilia was (and still is) a source of great joy for him. Over time, he’s developed one of the foremost collections of rock memorabilia in the world. Gary’s passion for music has led to tangible business success at a&g. A number of the clients we work with can be traced back to Gary’s knowledge of the music industry and the connections he’s made within it. He’s one of the very few people who can honestly say that he’s managed to turn his lifelong passion into a career.
