Platypus Advertising Makes Noise with Milwaukee Agency Acquisition
Platypus Advertising + Design announced today that it is acquiring the assets and most employees at NOISE, Inc.’s Milwaukee operation. NOISE will close its Milwaukee office, 1863 N. Farwell, on May 15. Six NOISE employees will join the Platypus team at N29 W23810 Woodgate Court West in Pewaukee.
“I’ve invested a lot of personal time on business travel to Wisconsin since moving to Florida and opening NOISE South in 2004,” says John Sprecher, owner at NOISE. “It’s been a wonderful experience but with three children under the age of 10 growing up fast, travel has become increasingly difficult for our family, physically and emotionally — so I’ve decided to focus my time and attention closer to home, and consolidate NOISE in Florida. I’ve known Dan Trzinski for many years and have long admired the work done at his agency. When we began discussions we both felt this would be a good fit for both of our companies and our clients. I’m very pleased to have found a great home for our staff and I’m confident that all of our current clients will find value and satisfaction from the added resources available at Platypus.”
“There is tremendous synergy between our agencies,” adds Dan Trzinski, owner of Platypus. “We both have expertise and knowledge in tourism/hospitality and healthcare marketing and are excited to be able to join forces. This is a win-win for everyone.”\
There will now be 21 employees at the Pewaukee-based office.
