Image of Myron Balagno, our founder
Myron” is Myron Balagno, the man who founded the company in 1971. The one-time radio announcer and public relations representative was a fascinating fixture in the Vancouver advertising community. He was an “Ad-Man” through and through, a practical joker who was respected and admired for his creativity and originality.
Upon his passing, The Vancouver Sun aptly saluted him as “a character in an age without character.” His philosophy of levity, simplicity and building long-term relationships permeate the company today.
