Multicultural Agency Celebrates 30th Anniversary

CHICAGO (December 12, 2011) — In light of the gamble taken by starting a Hispanic agency decades before the U.S. Census showed evidence of the need, The San Jose Group (SJG) celebrated its 30 years in business with a Casino Night on Friday, Dec. 9 at its offices on Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

The Las Vegas style venue was packed with SJG clients, media representatives, partner agencies and the SJG team. Guests were treated to a night of casino gaming including Blackjack, Roulette, Texas Hold ‘Em and Craps. Foods from around the world were featured to reflect the now multicultural face of America and the agency’s area of specialty.

“What a pleasure it was to host colleagues and associates for such a special evening. We couldn’t let thirty years of business go uncelebrated with those who have made it possible,” said George L. San Jose, president and COO of SJG. San Jose founded the business in 1981 with $247 in the bank and a conviction for the minority market to be serviced with the highest standard of advertising excellence.

With the bold imagination to create, The San Jose Group has become one of the leading independent multicultural agencies in the U.S. today.
