At PHG, we believe that when good people come together to work on clients and causes they’re passionate about, great things happen. So we’re committed to attracting those kinds of people and providing the guidance and resources needed to do work that makes them — and their clients — happy and successful.

Doug knows what it's like to be a client because he's been one. Prior to co-founding Pinckney Hugo Group, he spent nearly two decades in senior marketing positions that took him all over the world. This has given him a unique perspective that allows him to be uncommonly effective in solving marketing challenges. Also, he's pretty good at the golf thing.
Chris likes to create great work that works. He oversees PHG's award-winning team of creatives in making sure everything our agency does is not only amazing—but effective. Before PHG, Chris worked as a senior creative for agencies in New York and Connecticut. Before that, he carried cement.
Aaron is our clients' secret weapon. He creates and executes strategies designed to make our clients happy and their competition miserable. With both agency and client-side marketing experience, Aaron has worked on everything from small startups to the biggest brands in the world. In short, he makes things happen.
Our private courtyard makes a great spot for a meeting, lunch, and the occasional hotdog eating contest.
The employee bar and lounge offers a place to relax and get social— offline, that is.
It would take 63,069,600 of our conference room tables to reach from the Earth to the Moon. (It still wouldn't be long enough to handle some of our all-staff meetings.)
From employee events and shared milestones to professional development and committees, here’s a look at what makes us, well, us.
We celebrated our big milestone with a party for our staff and their families. It featured plenty of food, drink and, judging by the morning-after Snapchats, way too much karaoke.
in September 2022, we reached our 20th Anniversary and looked back on two decades of growth from a small shop above a liquor store to a near 100-person agency doing global work. A lot has changed – especially our headshots.
We’re big on staying on top of trends, sharing best practices and learning something new. We’re also big on lunch. Our PHG Learns professional development sessions bring it all together.
Whether it’s making PHG a better place to work, finding new opportunities for learning or helping out in our communities, we have plenty of ways for the team to get involved.
In 2016, Michela Hugo discovered an unmet need in our community. So we worked with her to start the CNY Diaper Bank. We are deeply committed to this cause, and so far we’ve been able to distribute over five million diapers to local families in need. Nope, not a typo. Five million.
With Mental Heath Awareness Week at the agency, we can’t thank the team enough for creating this week of talks, activities and resources to help make mental health a priority at PHG.
It’s our area code’s big day—and we celebrated by putting together over 50 care packages to help welcome and comfort those staying at @SarahHouseSyr. Happy #315day!
