York, PA (March 2015) – Gavin™ Advertising is pleased to announce that the York County Economic Alliance has named it 2015 Small Business of the Year. Gavin was honored at the Economic Alliance’s Annual Dinner on Friday, March 13, at Wyndham Garden York.

Based in the WeCo neighborhood in York, Pa., Gavin™ Advertising is a full-service advertising, marketing and public relations agency devoted to truth in branding and driving action. Gavin serves clients up and down the East Coast, across the U.S. and internationally in various industries including education, health care, building supply, consumer packaged goods, financial, agriculture, nonprofit, automotive, real estate, hospitality and entertainment.


“In just more than three years, our agency has grown from one person to a talented team of 13,” said Mandy Arnold, president. “Along the way, it’s been thrilling to expand our client roster to include local, national and even international clients that we serve through strategic communications and pubic relations, branding and innovative digital marketing. When Gavin opened, our goal was to put Main Street on the creative map and give Madison Avenue a run for its money. We’re feeling that we’re well on our way.”

Arnold continued, “As we’ve grown, we’ve been very focused on recruiting the best-of-the-best talent from all over so that Gavin continues to foster industry-leading marketing solutions for our clients. In doing so, our work has been recognized by our industry and in part has been a catalyst in capturing the attention of the region’s most exceptionally talented marketers. Our focus on our mission of being devoted to truth in branding and driving action has been the driving force in our successfully merged strategic messaging and branding approaches with new marketing technologies to reach audiences where they live and engage — resulting in very happy clients.”

The Small Business of the Year Award is given to a for-profit company with fewer than 100 employees and less than $10 million in revenue that has shown growth in employees and sales volume during the past three years.  The company must also have significant involvement in the York County Economic Alliance and the community.
