Romani Bros., a small but mighty ad agency run by partners Bernie Pitzel and Denny Hebson since 2003, was acquired by Schafer Condon Carter, a privately held, independent mid-sized local agency.
Pitzel and Hebson become creative directors, along with SCC’s CDs Suzanne Martineau and Ron Sone. Romani art director Christen Young also moved to SCC.
The acquisition comes as SCC enters its 20th year of consecutive growth as a integrated agency.
Led by managing partner and ECD Tim Condon, the agency’s expanding client roster includes ConAgra, General Mills, Brunswick Corp., General Mills, Solo Cup and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. In July, it added Garvey’s Office Products and GoodFoods Group.
Now added to the SCC client list are Romani Bros. clients, Peoples Gas, Rotary International, National PTA, Ryerson, EAA, JSSI and Tri-Land Properties.
