He also owns and runs Agency Management Institute (AMI), which offers agency management training, consulting and facilitates agency owner peer networks for small to mid sized agencies (advertising, digital, marketing, media and PR).
The mission of AMI is lofty yet simple — help agency owners increase their AGI, attract better clients and employees, mitigate the risks of being self employed in a such volatile business and best of all — let the agency owner actually enjoy the perks of owning the joint.
Drew is still active in his agency as well and they just wrapped up their 20th anniversary celebration, so it seems to be working out.
Drew’s often interviewed/quoted and published in Entrepreneur Magazine, New York Times, Washington Post, AdAge, CNN, BusinessWeek, and many others. The Wall Street Journal calls him “one of 10 bloggers every entrepreneur should read.”
When he’s not hanging out with clients or agency owners and their staff, Drew spends time with his daughter and pondering why the Dodgers can’t seem to get back to the World Series.
Drew has a Master’s Degree from the University of Minnesota but alas, he cannot remember their fight song.
