Ellin & Tucker Launches “In The Room” Ad Campaign


Ads Showcase Firm’s Commitment to Clients as Life-Long Advisors

Ellin & Tucker, the mid-Atlantic’s leading public accounting and business consulting firm, recently launched a new ad campaign titled “In The Room,” to showcase the unrivaled experience they provide for every client. The campaign uses the humorous metaphor of situations where precocious children showed an early interest in a specialized field, and how as adults, with Ellin & Tucker by their side, they were able to achieve great things in their career.

“If you’re not in the room with the client, you’re just another CPA,” said Ed Brake, managing director of Ellin & Tucker. “We build partnerships based on trust and respect. This campaign is an opportunity for us to showcase our dedication. It draws attention to our commitment, that we’ll be by each client’s side through all of their business successes and celebrations, and support them through their toughest challenges.”

“In The Room” is an integrated campaign featuring a series of 11 print ads, with a corresponding digital landing page. The ads were designed to capture the readers’ attention through playful imagery and copy, invoking humor and curiosity, while highlighting Ellin & Tucker’s ability to nurture their client’s passions into business success stories. Each ad correlates to an industry area of Ellin & Tucker’s expertise and work with sophisticated clients in commercial real estate, manufacturing, and private schools among others.

Vitamin®, Ellin & Tucker’s longstanding agency of record, handled campaign conceptualization and execution, the media plan and buy, as well as design and development of the landing page, which doubles as a microsite. Vitamin is an integrated digital and PR agency headquartered in Baltimore.

“Our intention was to create a campaign that elevates Ellin & Tucker’s position as a power-player in Baltimore and builds upon the humorous yet sophisticated tone the brand is known for,” said Amanda Karfakis, president and CEO of Vitamin. “Being ‘In The Room’ during their clients’ most critical decisions is a point of distinction for Ellin & Tucker and it’s one of the reasons they’ve earned such an incredible level of respect and trust among the Baltimore business community.”

The ad campaign began in May 2018 and will run into 2019.
