That gives Barnes Agency the unique perspective of developing initiatives from the client’s point of view and with a diligent eye toward achieving not only awareness but results.

Barnes Agency was founded in May 2003. The agency’s sole owner, president, and founder, Jeffrey M. Barnes, armed with 30 years of nationally-recognized non-profit and for-profit hospital system marketing and public relations experience, decided after years of research that a need existed in the region for an agency that specialized in healthcare marketing and public relations. Nearly 17 years later, Barnes Agency still specializes in healthcare marketing but has expanded in size, scope, and quality to successfully serve a variety of non-profit organizations, the legal industry, the banking industry, the tourism industry, retail and manufacturing businesses, the education sector and university athletics.

In addition, the agency is currently looking to expand its footprint to other locations throughout the nation.

To date, Barnes Agency and its leadership have received over 450 regional and national awards for advertising excellence.
