Advantage Advertising was founded by Frank Bruneel and Charles Christopher in January of 1986 as a start-up from the in-house marketing department at Bruneel Tire Company. 


Mr. Christopher who was then the Advertising Manager for Bruneel operated the agency from 1986 to 1987.  He then  purchased 100% of the agency on January 1, 1987.  The firm then began an aggressive new business push that resulted in its growth from the region’s 4th largest advertising agency in 1987, to the largest by 1992.  In 1993 the Advantage began to focus on new business from more regional accounts by targeting several potential larger clients who were headquartered in or had a large presence in this market.  In 1999, with several clients of that category on board, the company began to focus on regional and national business.  During these years of growth, the company has assembled the region’s most talented and experienced group of employees.   The current client list features a unique blend of many of the area’s leading retailers along with hospitals, colleges and universities.  Advantage has been recognized for its creativity with several national, multiple regional and countless local awards.
