TM Advertising CEO, Becca Weigman, led the deal for the Dallas-based agency to purchase independence from Interpublic Group. In 2001, when the company was called Temerlin McClain, it was part of the agency holding company, True North Communications which Interpublic bought that same year for 1.68 billion.
Weigman now controls a majority share in the shop, and will continue to lead the agency with four executives on her management team: Chief Creative Officer Lisa Bennett, Chief Media Officer Kim Moss, Chief Strategy Officer Tyler Beck and Chief Digital Officer Jeff Kempf.
Weigman stated, ” TM is the only female-owned brand creative agency in Dallas. There is a lot of opportunity for growth.” TM is in the process of being certified as a Women/Minority Business Enterprise by Texas and the federal government.
All current clients will remain with the agency.
