Bozell is an American full-service public relations and advertising agency headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, United States, North America.[clarification needed] The agency also has a location in Kansas City.
In 1985 the firm was purchased by Lorimar and merged with another Lorimar entity, Kenyon & Eckhart to form Bozell, Jacobs, Kenyon & Eckhardt. In the 1990s, the firm shortened its name to Bozell Worldwide.
Bozell is well known for its campaigns, which have introduced memorable slogans and ads, such as:
- "Pork. The Other White Meat"
- the "Got Milk?" milk moustache (Which was created by Goodby, Silverstein & Partners)
- "Corinthian Leather"
In 2001, the remaining largest offices of Bozell Worldwide were merged with Lowe Worldwide as part of the Interpublic Group of Companies. The managing partners of the Bozell office in Omaha then bought themselves out from the holding company and began as an independent shop again.[clarification needed]
