We’re always up to something around here. Learn more about our people, our company, and our newsworthy work.
We’d like to formally congratulate our CEO, Jeff Zehnder, for his placement on New Orleans’ “50 Most Influential People” list! This award recognizes his years of dedication to our agency and the greater community.
The team here at Zehnder is excited to announce that we’re officially employee-owned. This year, we transitioned to an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), putting the company shares (and its future) in the hands of our employees.
Zehnder is proud to announce winning 13 2020 Telly Awards (3 Golds, 9 Silvers, and 1 Bronze) for our TV and Video work across the agency. These awards span seven clients including our own self-promotional “Birthplace of Beyond” video. With in-house editing suite and virtual video and photo shoot capabilities, Zehnder is constantly on the cutting-edge of thought leadership and creative branding.
Zehnder is incredibly proud to announce we’re now the agency of record for world-renowned IRONMAN and the Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon Series. We oversee all advertising and digital media, as well as research and analytics activities, for each entity.
Zehnder begins a new chapter on Monday, Sept. 24, when we move to our new office in New Orleans in the Canal Place building at 365 Canal Street.
Every once in a while, a unicorn opportunity crosses your path in the advertising business. It could be a particularly strong line of business, or maybe a product you’re very passionate about. In the case of BiomeBliss, it involved both.
Formerly known as Community Trust Bank, Origin Bank serves locations in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. As their partnersince 2013, Zehnder has helped guide them through the name change, a website rebuild, multiple campaigns and forays into social media, content marketing and more.
Since we began working with DuPage Medical Group (DMG) in 2011, our creative work has sought to emphasize the importance of the patient. In a way, it’s an unexpected approach, considering DMG is the only area provider that’s owned and led by physicians.
Zehnder recently had the opportunity to partner with the State of Louisiana in promoting their latest push for teacher recruitment.
In the spring of 2017, Zehnder partnered with The National WWII Museum to create an interactive experience honoring those who support the Museum. Our digital department worked closely with the WWII Museum staff to design four kiosks highlighting Museum Members, volunteers, veterans, and others who have helped this institution remain one of the top attractions in the world.
As the world of advertising changes, proving ROI and personalizing campaign efforts are more important than ever. And with “big data” available to most marketers, the idea of collecting the right insights to inform a smart marketing strategy seems easy — until the numbers simply don’t match up, or the details you need can’t be found.
There’s a big difference between being “clinical” and providing personalized, compassionate care. It’s a distinction Zehnder wanted to make crystal clear when we recently helped launch the new branding for Amedisys (Nasdaq: AMED) – one of the nation’s leading home health care, hospice and personal care providers.
Zehnder is proud to have created work recognized in the regional competition for AAF District 7, which is comprised of agencies from Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.
We're honored to have created award-winning work for many of our clients in 2016. Zehnder took home 20 AAF Awards — including a Best of Show Print for Bollinger Shipyards and a Best of Show Video for the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation.
Zehnder took home three AAF Awards in Nashville for 30A’s Dumpster Diver recycled plastic apparel line. The agency helped 30A develop the Dumpster Diver identity which picked up a Silver AAF Award in the Integrated Brand Identity Campaign category.
Zehnder is excited to welcome the EMH Strategy team to our agency. After acquiring this New Orleans-based management consulting firm in January, we look forward to providing clients support in the business intelligence space.
Zehnder Communications, a full service advertising agency, has acquired Proofhouse, one of New Orleans’ leading social media firms. Terms of the transaction were not made public.
Some of Zehnder’s top talent has four legs. Molly, a 12-pound mix of sass and sweetness, serves as our director of first impressions in Baton Rouge. Sumner and Hewson, a King Charles Spaniel duo, provide comfort and fluffiness to our Nashville staff during long conference calls (we all know the kind).
The Nashville Business Journal recently released "The List," a list of businesses in Nashville ranked by industry and revenue. In the advertising category, Zehnder was listed fourth.
Zehnder is working with The 30A Company to launch an eco-friendly line of 30A-branded apparel online and in stores. The 30A Company is an international retail and lifestyle brand which celebrates small-town beach life along Florida’s Scenic Highway 30-A. Situated between the Gulf Coast and Choctawatchee Bay, Highway 30-A is ideally located for beach goers and nature lovers.
Zehnder has partnered with The 30A Company to launch a special edition charity tee to support Louisiana flood victims. All profits from the sale of 30A's "can't wash us away" Dumpster Diver t-shirt will go toward the Baton Rouge Area Foundation's flood relief fund. The fund supports local nonprofits who are assisting flood victims — including a handful of Zehnder's own staff members.

Furthermore, our campaign for Tijuana Sweet Heat was honored with a Best of Show, Overall award in New Orleans.
Our Nashville office is especially excited to welcome the NHL All-Star game to our town at the end of January. Given all of the intense game-day talk, we're giving everyone a break with some (unscientific) sports stats that will make you smile.
In the past six months, Zehnder has worked with a number of new clients across multiple industries. We're proud to have partnered with so many great companies across different sectors and states — our client roster now includes everything from a global energy company in the South to a premium chocolate company in the West.
