The history of Clayman & Associates actually begins, in a way, during World War II. Henry J. Clayman worked as a radio broadcaster and later as a writer for the famous army publication, Stars and Stripes. Henry took his love of writing and broadcasting into the advertising world starting in 1954, when he started his own advertising agency called Clayman & Associates.
Much like marketing has evolved, the original Clayman & Associates has adapted to the changes in the world of advertising and marketing over the last 60+ years. We still remember our first fax machine, our first Apple computer with 2 MGs of RAM, and our first website. We remember our office on South High Street in downtown Akron, moves to larger spaces over the years, and finally, of, course, the big move from Akron to Marietta, Ohio. We have changed our name four times (Clayman & Associates, Clayman Advertising, Clayman Marketing & Communications, and now full circle back to Clayman & Associates), and we have greeted many new faces along the way.
Through it all, one thing has remained the same. Clayman & Associates has always, ALWAYS focused on our clients. Marketing has never been about us. It has always been about how we can help our clients succeed. Whether a company needs media buying services, website development, video creation, or social media management, we pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve and offering the highest quality customer service possible.
Marketing constantly evolves, and so do we. It’s how one stays ahead in this world.
