About

Small, But Mighty

Sure, we’re not as large as some of other big agencies out there. But we never think small. MaagCommplus was formed by Al Maag, former chief communications officer of Avnet, Inc. Our companies’ expertise lies in developing creative approaches around thought leadership and adding personality into a company and or in charity organizations. We are a full-service, fully integrated agency, offering big-time experience and talent—with the attention, speed and affordability that comes from a small-scale boutique.

Our approach to advertising is simple. It’s about being creative, in a smart way. Intelligent creativity comes in all forms, from design and concept, to media placement and strategic planning. We can help with organizations that need that extra spark of creativity to help them reach their target audiences, create greater brand engagement and increase revenue. It starts with engaged employees and strategic efforts in the community with customers, not just digital and social media tactics. At MaagCommplus, we believe in the power of integrated marketing: we take an idea and we run with it, going the extra mile to deliver strategies, creative and media that get results. Because at the end of the day, if you’re not successful; we’re not successful.
