Personality plus is what we say. We are all strangely unique, but that’s what makes us such a great team. Here, you’ll meet the folks that make it happen on a daily basis (and hear us toot our own horns just a tad bit).

The Ad Group, Inc. is a minority-owned business and was established in January of 1995. The principals of the company have a wide range of advertising experience from media buying to full advertising campaigns including Mississippians for Jobs, the campaign that passed dockside gaming in Harrison County in 1992. The Ad Group also participated in post-Hurricane Katrina legislative lobbying efforts which led to the legalization of land-based gaming in South Mississippi.


Our advertising agency is a team of creative, hard-working and fun-loving individuals who all have one thing in common… the love of advertising. Our team expresses this passion in many ways. Innovative design, strategic planning, media placement that ensures maximum exposure, research and production all come together with the common goal of helping our clients reach their advertising goals. We also take tremendous pride in the fact that we save our clients money, so they can put their money back into their advertising.


Which probably explains why we’ve become one of the fastest-growing agencies on the

Mississippi Gulf Coast, serving a wide variety of clients ranging from tourism and casinos to healthcare and financial.


Our entire team pretty much embraces that old saying “Do what you love.” And our clients say they love what they are getting – results.


We have received national recognition for our work for the clients we represent. The Ad Group has also been recognized in the business community as Business of The Year by the Harrison County Development Commission and Business of the Quarter by the Biloxi Chamber of Commerce.


The Ad Group currently holds memberships in the following organizations:

• Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce

• American Advertising Federation

• Mississippi Gulf Coast Ad Fed

• Mississippi Hotel & Lodging Association

• Salvation Army of South MS

• Biloxi Bay Chamber of Commerce
