The long history and broad recognition of the name McKim meant that most of our clients and the business community referred to us this way, so in late 2013 we made it official by returning to our roots as McKim Communications Group Ltd., and to celebrate our legacy as an iconic advertising brand that has stood the test of time.

The Winnipeg Free Press was there to talk to CEO and president Peter George about the agency’s next chapter.

For those of you who are history buffs, A. McKim and Company was opened by Anson McKim in Montreal in January 1889 to make it Canada’s first and today, oldest ad agency.  The Winnipeg office opened in June 1911. Despite numerous acquisitions and divestitures over 125 years, McKim has had a continuous presence in Canada.
