Bill has been killing what he eats since the late 1980's when he started his first Advertising Agency. Around town Creative Directors who are acquainted with Bill will tell you what makes Bill so unique, is that he is one of the few "suits" who truly understands brilliant creative. He recognizes it (no small task in itself), knows what it takes to conceive it, sell it, and follow through on it.
That skill, no doubt, comes from the ten years he spent at Scali, McCabe, Sloves: unquestionably one of the hottest creative agencies of the 70's and 80's. At Scali, Bill rose to EVP/Account Management, responsible for virtually all the agency's accounts ($700 million in billings). Accounts like the Continental Airlines, Chase Manhattan Bank, Castrol Motor Oil, Volvo, and Maxell Tapes, to name a few. Bill was also on the team that developed the concept to become COURTYARD BY MARIOTT.
Following SMS, Bill joined forces with the Lowe Group in forming Lowe, Tucker, Metcalf, an agency that quickly grew to over $60 million in billings. In just a few short years, LTM garnered a reputation for doing creative, highly strategic work for a handful of clients, which included Ricoh Cameras, The Boston Company, The Scandinavian Tourist Board Parker Pens and Avis Quick Lubes.
In 1993, Bill founded The Tucker Partnership, Inc. and eventually became agency of record for Quaker State Motor Oil, Pennzoil Motor Oil Promotions, GE Corporate, TWA, [yellow tail] and more. In 2005 The Agency became Agency212 following an important acquisition and The Tucker Partnership has since served as a "boutique holding company" with interests in many vertically integrated skills such as Internet design and marketing (iFuel Interactive, LLC.) Clients today include Warnaco, Loews Hotels, The Cavit Collection and many more.
