Brown & Bigelow Acquires Jacksonville Specialty Advertising
Brown & Bigelow, the top 50 distributor headquartered in St. Paul, Minn., expanded its presence in the Florida market with the acquisition of Jacksonville Specialty Advertising (JSA Promos) of Jacksonville, Fla.
Jacksonville Specialty Advertising was started in 1960 and was acquired by the Petersen Family in 1977. Scott Petersen, president of JSA Promos said, "It was time to partner with a national distributor to support our next stage of growth. We chose Brown & Bigelow because their unique business model will allow us to maintain our identity and to support our sales executives locally. Order processing and supplier relations will continue in our offices in Jacksonville, Florida."
"We are very excited to have an organization the caliber of JSA Promos join the Brown & Bigelow family," said William D. Smith, Jr., president of Brown & Bigelow Inc. "We are also very pleased that Scott Petersen has agreed to remain as president of JSA Promos, a division of Brown & Bigelow Inc. to manage the local division."
