Founded in 1996 by two lifelong friends, Stream Companies was created with the intention of bringing something different to the advertising table. At a time when digital outfits were popping up left and right trying to take advantage of the dot com bubble, Stream implemented a full-service and fully integrated approach that successfully set us apart from other agencies. So instead of needing to hire one agency to handle your traditional advertising and another for digital, Stream became a one-stop shop where traditional and digital worked together in perfect harmony.

Workforce now over 300 strong.
In the beginning, we had only a handful of employees and even fewer clients. But word of our blue-collar work ethic and get-it-done attitude quickly spread. In fewer than 10 years, we expanded our client list, successfully entered the automotive advertising industry, and added a professional, in-house production studio.
As Stream and our list of partnering brands continued to grow, we opened offices across the country, from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. Our service mission to do the ordinary extraordinarily well and our goal of treating every client like the only client helped to build us into one of the top ad agencies in the region. This is a title we further solidified when we launched our advanced marketing platform known as FullThrottle along with a propriety equity mining tool to help auto dealers spot sales opportunities.
Today, our team is more than 150 strong and growing. But we haven’t lost sight of our original mission to create a different kind of agency that provides fully integrated advertising on sweat-breaking deadlines, holding true to our promise of treating every client like the only client.
