The Brandon Agency owes its start to a bank. Well, a bank and spare time. Fifty years ago, Cecil Brandon came to Myrtle Beach to begin a banking career. As fate would have it, he arrived a few months early, so with time on his hands, he decided to take photographs around the beach and sell them as advertising postcards out of the trunk of his car. Had Cecil arrived a few months later, The Brandon Agency might very well be Brandon Banking today, but thanks to some spare time, an advertising agency was born, and Cecil never looked back.
A half a century later, The Brandon Agency has flourished into a full-service agency with national clients and more than 60 full-time employees. We’ve been through many changes and “facelifts” as some might call them. Yet, we still approach each day and client with that same hunger and entrepreneurial drive that our agency was founded upon back in 1959. Hey, it’s just who we are.
In 2004, The Brandon Agency proudly announced the opening of an office in Charleston, South Carolina in order to serve our growing client base in the Charleston and Hilton Head areas, and in November 2008, we opened a Charlotte, North Carolina office. And with clients in Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, New York, Virginia and Michigan, we might just be opening an office near you soon.
