The shop began as the San Francisco office of Chiat/Day, now part of Omnicom Group's TBWA/Chiat/Day, and since the 1980s it has handled clients such as Apple Computers, California Cooler, Teddy Ruxpin and Dell Computer Corp. It continues to handle Cisco Systems.
Two of GMO's founders, Fred Goldberg and Mike Moser, have retired from the business. Brian O'Neill is on leave and is expected to return at the end of the year.
The shop is in the process of relocating to the nearby smaller San Francisco offices of now closed sibling Lowe Lintas. Another sibling, Foote, Cone & Belding, San Francisco, is expected to move into the old space. -- Alice Z. Cuneo
