GKV, briefly

We’re from Baltimore. Therefore, we hate the Yankees. It’s elemental, like air … or eating crabs. Orioles’ fans hate the Yankees because they can write bigger checks and buy their success. We can’t. The Orioles’ payroll is one-third the size of the Yankees’. So we play harder and tougher and smarter. Buck Showalter is not afraid to take chances; not afraid to trust his players. And we win.

GKV has been helping challenger brands succeed for over 30 years. Think of us as the Buck Showalter of ad agencies.

Our mission is to help you beat the Yankees.
