Manila-based creative advertising agency Montgomery Fitch + Associates recently celebrated its 5th year in the industry at the posh Borough gastropub located within the Ortigas Center business district. The precocious gathering of wine, food and song was likewise graced by key industry partners, client representatives and members of the agency's extended network. A poignant yet electric vibe pervaded the celebration, a testament to the tenacity and consistent team effort that has allowed the agency to carve out its own niche within a tough-as-nails market segment. Managing Director Louie De Leon offered as such. "Five years of business simply doesn't happen without our loyal partners and the grit of our youthful team. This night is for them."

The mid-stage startup enters the year with robust expectations and its all-millenial crew firing on all cylinders as several major campaigns are prepared to commence within the year's first quarter. "We're truly blessed, and we're all hungry for more. Everyone is looking forward to bigger and bolder challenges" asserted Executive Vice-President Geraldine Samson, who coincidentally was the agency's first ever hire in Manila during its startup days. "Account volume is at an all- time high, and recent acquisitions we've made to augment our in-house production and animation capabilities are poised to increase our efficiency and productivity levels" added founding partner and CEO Luis Arcangel.

Arcangel had started the agency in 2007 as a creative consultancy in Park Avenue, New York. A grind-it-out, hard-fought client list all but evaporated with the crash of 2008, and he found himself picking up the pieces in his native Philippines soon after. "I had to start from scratch. No cash, no connections, no nothing. It was full blown startup mode all over again."

In the years that followed, an aggressive, throw-caution-to-the-wind mentality fueled by youth and caffeine has allowed the agency to develop its own distinctive creative signature with output spanning TV, Print, Radio, Out-Of-Home and Digital Media. Not coincidentally, their startup team of four has now expanded into nearly forty spanning multiple disciplines - all under the age of 30.

De Leon screams out a rejoinder amidst a cacophony of champagne-soaked cheers, "I have so much faith with our current team, even the sky is not the limit. We've invested heavily in our future, and now that future is slowly becoming a reality."

Montgomery Fitch + Associates is located at Suite 2302, F.Ortigas Jr. Ave, Ortigas Center, Pasig. For more information about the company and its services visit http://www.montgomeryfitch.com or call +63 949 45 88.
