May 18, 2012 USA Offices

PGM Artists and its sister company The Brand Gallery (a creative boutique agency) have moved to a recently purchased headquarters office building at 701 West Putnam Avenue in Greenwich, Connecticut. The companies previously had rented space at 205 Railroad Avenue in Greenwich to facilitate the move between their old headquarters in New York and the newly renovated building in Greenwich. The move, which was recently completed this spring, represents an expansion of the companies shared operations into a new 3,000 square-foot space on a “campus” setting, providing space for eventual further expansion.

“This big move to our very own new space helps us tremendously in managing our growth,” said Phil McIntyre, CEO of both PGM Artists & The Brand Gallery. “This region is incubating activity within the media, communications and marketing industries, and we’re excited to be a part of that trend.” In recent years, media-industry activity in Fairfield County has included the move of NBC Universal’s production of talk shows “Jerry Springer,” “Maury Povich,” and “Steve Wilkos” to Stamford as well as 450 permanent jobs for The NBC Sports Group as well as Fox computer-animation unit Blue Sky Studios to Greenwich. All these moves join long-time Stamford resident The WWE. Click on the images below to view the images in a larger size.
