March marks 60 years for FKQ Advertising + Marketing in Clearwater

With Women’s History Month being celebrated in March, FKQ Advertising + Marketing’s 60-year anniversary holds a special significance.

FKQ Advertising + Marketing, a full-service, independently-owned agency, was founded in 1961 during the heyday of the “Mad Men” era of advertising.

“We are so proud to mark 60 years in the advertising and marketing industry where, no matter what the challenge we all face, we have always persevered because we know how to quickly pivot, and successfully navigate, our clients’ businesses forward,” said Lisa Faller, president and CEO of FKQ Advertising + Marketing, in a statement. “This success comes from our talented staff, who bring their ‘Whatever It Takes’ spirit to the table every day.”

FKQ was founded by Bob Faller, Lisa’s father, in Buffalo, New York. Faller moved operations to Florida in 1987. Lisa became CEO of the firm in 2003. Three generations now work at FKQ.

Lisa Faller and her partners, George Ferris, Karen Gorenflo, Rob Faller and Stacy Howell, currently lead FKQ’s executive committee.
