TM headquarters in Dallas

The company was founded in 1934 as Glenn Advertising, which was then renamed to Glenn, Bozell & Jacobs in 1973. It later became Bozell Dallas before becoming Temerlin McClain in 1992. In 2001, TM Advertising became a part of the Interpublic Group of Companies.[1] Later in 2004, the name Temerlin McClain was shortened to just TM.

In May 2017, Chief Executive Officer Becca Weigman bought TM Advertising back from Interpublic Group; Weigman claims the firm is the first and only independent, female-owned, brand creative agency in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Weigman, who owns a majority share in the agency, will continue to lead TM Advertising with her management team: Chief Creative Officer, Lisa Bennett; Chief Media Officer, Kim Moss; Chief Strategy Officer, Tyler Beck; and Chief Digital Officer, Jeff Kempf.[2]
