Although Stream Companies wasn’t officially founded until 1996, the business partnership between David Regn and Jason Brennan began much earlier. While other students at Great Valley High were getting jobs waiting tables or delivering newspapers, Dave and Jay decided to go into business for themselves, selling custom made t-shirts.
At $10 a shirt, the duo managed to rake in nearly $1,500 over the course of just one school year. While it wasn’t exactly the cash cow they hoped for, it did spark an entrepreneurial spirit that became the catalyst for their next and most successful business partnership – Stream Companies.
From the very beginning, the team at Stream Companies has been committed to doing the ordinary extraordinarily well which we know takes a lot of elbow grease and plenty of late nights. We’re a blue-collar agency and we’re not afraid to do the heavy lifting to help you move more metal. After all, isn’t that what your advertising agency is supposed to do? But then again, we’re not just any agency. We’re your fully integrated advertising partner.
To be industry thought leaders dedicated to driving results and exceeding our clients’ expectations.
To build our clients’ brands using our results-driven philosophy while generating and retaining customers by providing clear and consistent advertising messages, resulting in increased sales and profitability.

An Agency of Innovators
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 500+ 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.
