Madison, WI (PRWEB) January 25, 2006
Stock photography agency PunchStock & UpperCut Images announced the official opening of its New York office. The office, located in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan, at 386 Park Avenue South, houses the company’s rapidly growing marketing department and New York sales office.
PunchStock and UpperCut Images’ other locations include its Madison, Wisconsin headquarters as well as offices in London and Seattle.
In addition to the launch of UpperCut Images – PunchStock’s companion collection of exclusive high-end rights-protected images – PunchStock also introduced a complete overhaul and upgrade of its online image search technology, as well as a marketing campaign that sent six winning registrants on all-expense-paid domestic and international vacations.
“The opening of the New York office is the perfect postscript to a fantastic year,” says PunchStock & UpperCut Images President Miles Gerstein. “Our new rights-managed collection, UpperCut Images, was born; we launched several successful, award-winning marketing and ad campaigns and exceeded our 2004 sales figures by 40%. I’m really looking forward to continued success in 2006.”
Proximity to a major portion of its client base is among the many reasons the agency opened its New York office. Said Andy Hill, PunchStock & UpperCut Images vice president of sales in North America, “With many of the largest ad agencies, publishers, media, and corporations located nearby, our new office will enable us to develop deeper relationships with these valued customers and provide an even higher level of service to meet their creative visual imagery needs.”
