History

”Pinnacle Advertising & Marketing Group” (also known as ”’Pinnacle Advertising”’) is an award-winning full-service marketing communications agency located in Schaumburg, Illinois, providing services in advertising, media planning and buying, online marketing, web development, data analytics, integrated communications planning, brand identity, design and strategic brand consulting. Pinnacle is one of the largest independent agencies in the Midwestern United States.

Pinnacle Advertising & Marketing Group was founded in 1998 by Chicago native and business entrepreneur, Michael Magnusson. Mike’s career began as an automotive Advertising Sales Director at the Chicago Tribune where he was very successful in rapidly building a large and loyal client list, based particularly on a personalized client service approach. Mike created Pinnacle Advertising following suggestions from several of his clients that the marketplace would benefit from a more nimble, retail focused ad agency just outside the downtown Chicago ad corridor.

In 2006, several Honda Dealer Associations awarded their business to the agency, and with the growth of that relationship, the agency has become one of the largest supporting marketing partners for Honda and Acura regional advertising business in North America.

In 2007, automotive accessories giant, WeatherTech, joined the agency client roster. The agency has won USA Today viewer recognition awards for WeatherTech TV spots appearing in the 2014 and 2015 Super Bowl games.

The agency has been the recipient of 25+ Telly, Davey and Communicator awards in recognition of messaging effectiveness on behalf of clients.
