In the tradition of Jerry Maguire, the founder of CenterRock Advertising, Steve Jacuzzi, was also inspired to break away from a bigger agency to forge his own path in the advertising world. His intent was to build a company that strived for authenticity and fairness while encouraging a culture of goodwill and community between his employees and his clients. When you truly care about your clients, the efforts become personal and success follows.
The CenterRock philosophy centers on a belief in connecting a brand’s story to their audience with a proven strategy and execution. So grab your goldfish and let’s get to work on something great.
When I founded CenterRock Advertising in 2015, I wanted to establish a dynamic agency that focused on building partnerships and forming long-lasting relationships.
When you find an agency that measures their success by the success of their clients, you have CenterRock Advertising. We form a connection with our clients where we understand your opportunities and hardships, use research and method to determine the optimal solutions for you, and relentlessly strive for your success.
