Scoppechio Plants Roots In The Sunshine State
Scoppechio – Orlando opens to better serve growing number of Florida-based clients
Scoppechio, one of the nation’s largest independent advertising and marketing services agencies, has opened a new office in Orlando, Florida.
Located at 1413 Haven Drive in the Mills 50 Creative District of Orlando, this marks the fourth location in the Scoppechio network, joining the agency’s headquarters in Louisville, KY, as well as offices in Cincinnati and Columbus, OH.
“We’re very excited about expanding our network into Florida,” stated Jerry Preyss, Scoppechio Chairman & CEO. “Given our portfolio in healthcare, restaurant, tourism & hospitality, and the strength of the growing Florida economy, this is a move that makes a lot of sense to us. And from our vantage point, Orlando is at the center of it all. Our vision is long-term with the idea of adding staff as we grow. Here in Orlando, we’re currently engaged with Darden Restaurants on several of their important brands, as well as our recent connection to Orlando Utilities Commission. In addition, we’re also supporting clients that, while not based in Florida, have an important business presence in the state so our having feet on the ground here will only allow us to serve them better,” Preyss added.
The Orlando office location is managed by Julie Benton, a ten-year veteran of the agency. Julie relocated from Louisville to manage this location and brings a long history of building successful brands.
Scoppechio, founded in 1987, provides a comprehensive omnichannel suite of services for its clients with a robust, in-house production capability that provides digital, video and photographic content for a wide range of clients that include GE Appliances, Darden, Yum Brands, Brown-Forman, Baptist Health and more. Its Performance Marketing group provides strategy, CRM and complete media planning, buying and optimization services as well. “Our industry is going through tumultuous change right now,” said Preyss. “We’re growing because we provide a great value exchange to our clients and demonstrate an accountability-based culture that we feel is uncommon in these times. We’re really looking forward to telling our story across the Sunshine State.”
Scoppechio plans to have 10 employees working out of its Mills 50 location by mid-year.
