Notes: RPA was founded by Gerry Rubin and Larry Postaer in 1986 when they left the Los Angeles office of Needham Harper & Steers. Rubin Postaer & Associates, its name then, has expanded from its Santa Monica, Calif.-base to Chicago, Portland, Ore., Moorestown, N.J., Denver, Dallas, and Atlanta largely to direct advertising for the diverse dealer groups of American Honda, its largest account. RPA is involved in traditional advertising, interactive, direct and event marketing. The agency in October 2006 named Shelley Watson, VP, director of entertainment to head up media buying and planning for the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer account gained earlier in the year. She previously was head of broadcasting investment at Starcom's Los Angeles shop.
