B&B Marketing Communications
Pete began his career in advertising as an account executive in a Houston ad agency immediately following graduation from Princeton University in 1972 with a degree in socio-economics. In 1978, he launched his own full-service advertising and public relations firm that handled a blend of consumer/retail, business-to-business and political accounts that competed locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. As a member of the Business Marketing Association (BMA), Pete is a Certified Business Communicator and has served the organization in a number of officer positions including President of the Houston Chapter and Regional Vice President of the national association. He was recognized by the Houston Chapter as Member of the Year in 1982 and as Agency Member of the Year in 1986. In 2000, he had the honor of receiving the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from the Houston Chapter of the BMA.
Today, with 40 years of advertising and public relations experience, he operates primarily as a business-to-business marketing communications consultant. B&B Marketing Communications provides all the traditional advertising agency services - including strategic planning, creative direction, market research, copywriting, production and printing coordination of all collateral material (including brochures, websites, catalogs, newsletters, trade journal ads, e-marketing and direct mail), media placement and public relations.
Wanda began her career in advertising in 1979 when she left her position as a Vocational Counselor for the Texas Rehabilitation Commission to assist Pete as a full-time bookkeeper in their one-year-old advertising agency. A graduate of Southwest Texas State University with a major in Spanish and a minor in English, Wanda also pursued a Master's degree in Criminology and Corrections while she served as a Probation Officer for Harris County, Texas (a position she now credits with preparing her for the advertising industry). Today, as co-owner of B&B Marketing Communications, she applies her more than 30 years of experience to managing client collateral production and media placement.
