BMF's roots date to 1926, which makes us the oldest agency in the southern United States. We embrace a healthy respect for the outstanding work of our predecessors and the legacy they've left us, yet we're squarely focused on today and tomorrow, and on serving our clients as well in the future as we have in the past.
Today's BMF was founded in 2002, through the merger of the venerable Fitzgerald Advertising, and The Beuerman Miller Group, an agency with its own outstanding reputation for progressive work in the public relations, public affairs and crisis communications sectors. In 1998, our agency joined IPREX, the International Public Relations Exchange, a global partnership of the world's best independent PR firms in over 70 cities, giving us additional global reach and intellectual capital.
As our industry has evolved, so has BMF in our ability to adapt to emerging trends and new technologies, without forgetting our past. From the time Fitzgerald Advertising opened its doors, to The Beuerman Miller Group and now BMF, it’s important that we remember our past as we look forward to the future.
