Debra Malinics steadily built a name for herself and her self-named agency, earning a reputation for outstanding creative thinking, professional execution, stellar service and proven results. Her name is recognized and respected among colleagues and clients; it has clout and opens doors. The name 701 Creative represents a change in ownership. Laura Jacoby and Sal Trovato, longtime agency associates who were/are instrumental in the agency’s growth and success, are now partners. Ms Malinics has passed along the baton and remains active in the vital role of President of Business Development.
Co-Owner and Partner, Sal Trovato believes that, “building strong client relationships is one of the most important aspects to a successful business. I want my clients to consider me as a part of their team and know that I always have their best interests in mind." Co-Owner and Partner, Laura Jacoby lives by her core belief that, “a beautiful design is only beautiful when it addresses the client’s communication needs and brings the desired results. This takes more than just mastering design skills, it takes knowledge, insight and experience.”
Our new name pays homage to our longtime 701 Walnut Street address, an active corner, where from our windows, we have witnessed life in action. This is where our agency was born and where our creativity flourishes. The partnership Laura and Sal have created, along with the foundation and experience Debra has established, allows us the ability to influence behavior and create brand advantage for our clients with a track record of truly remarkable results.
