Enterprise IG Celebrates 30th Anniversary
31 July, 2006
Enterprise IG, the leading global brand agency, is proud to announce its 30th year anniversary.
1976 saw Enterprise IG’s European Chairman Terry Tyrrell and Sam Sampson join forces to form Sampson Tyrrell. Ten years later in 1986 Sampson Tyrrell joined WPP as one of the Group’s first branding and identity consultancies and proceeded to form alliances with New York based design firm, Anspach Grossman Portugal and San Francisco based SidjakovBermanGomez.
In the years that followed, the company grew through the addition of other complementary businesses including Brown Inc, Tutsells, Avicom, MCA and Information Design Unit. In 1996 these businesses formally came together as Enterprise IG.
30 years on, Enterprise IG is now one of the world’s leading global brand agencies with the resource of nearly 600 people covering 22 offices in 20 countries and a client base which includes Vodafone, Credit Suisse, Hewlett Packard, SABMiller and Castrol.
Terry Tyrrell says: “We are extremely proud of how far Enterprise IG has come over the last 30 years and look forward to seeing it grow in the years to come. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Enterprise IG family for their never-ending passion and commitment.”
Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO of WPP, comments, “As one of the first branding and identity companies to join WPP, Enterprise IG was something of a trailblazer. It is very rewarding for us, these many years later, to recognise the company today as one of the world's leading consultancies in its field. Happy Birthday to one of our finest. Here's to the next thirty!"
