Las Vegas firm buys Austin ad agency
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.
