Jeffrey Launches JeffreyGroup From His Miami Beach Apartment
After 15 years working at large international PR agencies, Jeffrey leaves Saatchi & Saatchi New York and moves to Florida with plans to create a Latin America consultancy, teach and write a novel.
First Office: 1111 Lincoln Road
Jeffrey hires his first full-time staff to help with the growing business (teaching and the novel are put on hold) as the agency opens its first office at the iconic 1111 Lincoln Road building on Miami Beach.
Annual Fees Top US$1 million
