Milwaukee Mayor’s Office Proclaims Sept. 22, 2023, as ‘Bader Rutter Day’

Recognition comes as agency celebrates 50th anniversary

Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson has officially proclaimed Sept. 22, 2023, as “Bader Rutter Day.” The announcement comes as the Milwaukee-based advertising agency celebrates its 50th anniversary.

“Whether it’s the impressive work that they’ve done for our Milwaukee Bucks, or the campaigns that they’ve launched across the agriculture and food and beverage industry, they make all of Milwaukee proud,” said Mayor Johnson. “As a top B2B marketing agency, their work helps support jobs both here and around the world. For that and so much more, we’re happy to recognize Bader Rutter Day.”

“When our founders opened our agency doors 50 years ago, I don’t think they could have envisioned receiving this honor,” said Jeff Young, chairman and CEO of Bader Rutter. “But they had a commitment to bring inspired creativity to the agriculture industry, which over time grew Bader Rutter into the #1 agrimarketing agency — and today the #1 B2B agency — in North America. This means so much to us because Milwaukee is our home. It’s in our DNA, from how we find inspiration for our work to the community organizations we support. We’re proud to call this city home.”

Bader Rutter will continue to mark its anniversary with multiple celebrations throughout the year. To stay up to date on the latest activations, please visit
