Geoff Gutgold was rocking out to the Police album Zenyatta Mondatta one day in 1986 when the lyrics “when the world is running down, you make the best of what’s still around” prompted a revelation. You don’t have to settle for “what’s still around,” he realized...you can create something better! And GGA Global was born.
Inventing origin stories is in vogue these days.
Truth: 1986 was indeed the year that Gutgold started GGA, with a mission to serve clients with stellar advertising and public relations.
More than three decades and many myriad music trends later, GGA is more creative and helpful than ever, and many of our clients have stuck with us because we get positive results. We have strong ties to the Lehigh Valley region and beyond.
For Advertising, Public Relations and Social Media, put our team to work. We'll help you go ahead.
