Carl Ally and Amil Gargano
(1924-1999) and (1933- )
Ally & Gargano, New York
Copywriter Ally left fabled Papert, Koenig, Lois in 1962 to open his own agency; landed the Pan Am, Volvo and Hertz accounts; and brought in art director Amil Gargano and copywriter Jim Durfee, whom he worked with at Campbell-Ewald. As Ally & Gargano, they would light up advertising's newly brightened skies by naming competitors in ads and making forceful claims. For Volvo, it was about safety. For Hertz? Was Avis No. 2 in car rentals? A&G's response: "For years Avis has been telling you Hertz is No. 1. Now we're going to tell you why." The rest is history -- in now-fabled Ally & Gargano style.
Show off rich, innovative advertising. B-to-b marketers are wrestling with their own unique challenges--and proving that they’ve got what it takes to close the deal. Join an impressive group of past winners that includes Adobe, Avon, Cisco, Oakley, Time Warner Cable Media and more.
