The creative community continues to grow in Charlotte and Eric Mower + Associates is one of the ad agencies leading the way.
Eric Mower + Associates (EMA for short) is one of the largest independent ad agencies in the country: 250 people across eight offices. The Charlotte office is led by Matt Ferguson and currently has 36 employees.
I’m a big fan of Matt (as I think everybody is in the advertising community). He was kind enough to have me over to snap a few photos of the EMA crib.
EMA fast facts
