About
About We’re a full-service marketing communications firm. That means you’ll find design, media, interactive, video, PR and more – plus some general, everyday nonsense – all in one place.

Our Partners

Doug Pinckney 
Doug knows what it's like to be a client because he's been one. Prior to co-founding Pinckney Hugo Group, he spent nearly two decades in senior marketing positions that took him all over the world. This has given him a unique perspective that allows him to be uncommonly effective in solving marketing challenges. Also, he's pretty good at the golf thing.

Chris Pinckney  
Chris likes to create great work that works. He oversees PHG's award-winning team of creatives in making sure everything our agency does is not only amazing—but effective. Before PHG, Chris worked as a senior creative for agencies in New York and Connecticut. Before that, he carried cement.

Aaron Hugo 
Aaron is our clients' secret weapon. He creates and executes strategies designed to make our clients happy and their competition miserable. With both agency and client-side marketing experience, Aaron has worked on everything from small startups to the biggest brands in the world. In short, he makes things happen.

Virtual Office Tour

The Courtyard

Our private courtyard makes a great spot for a meeting, lunch, and the occasional hotdog eating contest.

Employee Lounge

The employee bar and lounge offers a place to relax and get social— offline, that is.

Conference Room

It would take 63,069,600 of our conference room tables to reach from the Earth to the Moon. (It still wouldn't be long enough to handle some of our all-staff meetings.)

Our Culture

PHG at Google HQ 

Being a Google Premier Partner means we can pretty much drop by their understated NYC digs anytime we want to.

2017 Summer Party 

The team celebrated summer on a perfect night overlooking the city of Syracuse. We raised our glasses—and a few ping pong balls—15-stories high on the newly opened rooftop terrace on the Barclay Damon building.

PHG’s 15-Year Anniversary 

Since we somehow managed to keep the lights on (mostly) for 15 years, it called for a party. And party we did.

A Season of Thanks 

The entire PHG team pitched in for some amazing organizations during the holiday season. It was a great way to give back to those in our community who do so much.
