Embracing the highest expectations.

Founding Story

The innovations in communications and media are accelerating at an unprecedented pace. Branded founders Seth Gruen and Jonathan Gluskin recognized this paradigm in late 2018 and launched an agency that prioritizes a newsroom-like pace in order to keep up with the rate of consumption and distribution of information. Gruen is formerly a multimedia journalist who wrote for some of the most notable media brands worldwide and appeared on television and radio networks across the country. Gluskin is an agency lifer who held leadership positions at top national agencies and led account teams that turned startups into multi-billion-dollar unicorns. Drawing upon their dueling experiences in media, communications and marketing, Gruen and Gluskin identified specific areas of practice where, when integrated, combine to drive awareness for each of Branded’s clients.
