Harmelin Media was founded in 1982 by Joanne Harmelin and was one of the region’s first agencies solely dedicated to media planning and buying. From a very modest beginning with three employees and a handful of loyal accounts, Harmelin Media has grown into one of the largest independent media services firms in the United States.

Harmelin’s come a long way since its founding over 37 years ago. But one thing has remained unchanged, and that’s commitment. To clients. To staff. To community. And to the little things that truly make a difference.
