A proclamation from the office of Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry will officially acknowledge Thursday, Sept. 11, 2014, as “Asher Agency Day” in honor of the 40th anniversary of the marketing, public relations and advertising firm.
Asher Agency was founded in June 1974 by Tim Borne as a one-person office in the basement of the Commerce Building, 127 W. Berry St.
Now located at 535 W. Wayne St., the firm has grown to eight offices in Fort Wayne; Indianapolis; Atlanta, Ga.; Cary, N.C.; Lexington, Ky.; Oklahoma City, Okla; Charleston, W.Va.; and Washington, D.C.
The company has 63 employees serving clients in business sectors that include Quick Service Restaurants (QSR), sports and entertainment, higher education, health care, utilities and telecommunications, political campaigns, and government and public affairs. Asher is recognized as the No. 1 SUBWAY® franchise agency in the United States.
“Asher’s success has always been a direct result of our hardworking and creative staff, what we like to call ‘the Asher family,’” said Asher President Tom Borne, who is Tim Borne’s brother. “We are proud to be part of the West Central district and downtown Fort Wayne, and we are truly excited to see what the next 40 years bring.”
