Tired of growing other people’s companies, Gerry launched his own agency, Barton F. Graf 9000, in 2010.
The agency was named Top Agency To Watch by AdAge in 2011 and named to the AdAge Agency A-List in 2012 and 2013. In 2014, Barton was named Midsized Agency of the Year by the 4A’s and the 5th most innovative Advertising Agency by Fast Company magazine. Gerry was also named Fast Co.’s 54th most innovative person.
Gerry is a member of the Facebook Creative Council. Business Insider named him The Most Creative Man In Advertising. Newsweek magazine featured him in a story on the New Don Drapers. And PBS featured the agency as an example of the new, innovative shops in the documentary “The Real Mad Men of Madison Ave.” Barton is now the fastest growing independent agency in America.
Gerry lives in Manhattan with his wife, three kids, a dog he likes and a cat he doesn’t.
