Las Ve­gas firm buys Austin ad agency

Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS -

Austin ad­ver­tis­ing agency Weeks & Co. has been ac­quired by a Las Ve­gas-based firm.

Weeks & Co. founder David Weeks said R&R Part­ners pur­chased a ma­jor­ity stake in his com­pany for an undis­closed amount.

R&R, which was be­hind the pop­u­lar “What hap­pens here, stays here” Las Ve­gas tourism cam­paign, is in­ter­ested in ex­pand­ing in Texas and will grow the Austin lo­ca­tion, which is cur­rently a hand­ful of em­ploy­ees, Weeks said.

Founded in 1981, Weeks & Co. has as­sisted in cam­paigns for Gov. Rick Perry and Ne­vada Gov. Brian San­doval. Weeks said his agency, go­ing for­ward, will do less po­lit­i­cal work and more gov­ern­men­tal af­fairs busi­ness.
