The San Jose Group Celebrates 31 Years of Reaching Complex Markets

CHICAGO
(December 3, 2012)
 — In 1981 at an early age, George L. San Jose was sure of
two things: the obvious need for full-market representation in U.S. advertising
and the reality that his entrepreneurial spirit could create an opportunity to
serve as a thought-leader in the multicultural marketing space. With this
vision, San Jose founded
The San Jose
Group

(SJG) a Hispanic-focused advertising agency specializing in multicultural
lifestyle and behavioral marketing solutions. SJG’s success as one of the
industry’s first agencies dedicated to reaching the Latino community later led to
the development of two additional business units-
SJ Public Relations and San Jose Consulting. After 31
years of providing insightful advertising campaigns and strategic counsel to
dozens of clients, while receiving hundreds of awards from the marketing and
advertising community, The San Jose Group is considered an ‘Agency to Watch’ in
2013.

“We
have had a very exciting year,” said George San Jose, president and chief
creative officer, The San Jose Group. “Every year the agency selects one major
innovation to focus on and allocates additional professional time to master. This
year, we charged our digital team with the task of optimizing the digital
assets of each client and leveraging their social media channels to offer a
unique and impactful brand experience for their consumers. This strategic
approach delivered well-received results to our partners.”

quarter alone, The San Jose Group and its Public Relations division received the
following awards for its advertising and public relations campaigns:
