This is Milner Butcher Media Group
We help companies invest their
dollars for maximum impact.
Back in the day, Bruce Milner and Andrew Butcher met one another as employees of Media Buying Services International…one of the first independent Media Services in the world. They became fast friends and decided to open up their own shop, creating International Communications Group, Inc. (better known as ICG).
At its apex, ICG grew to be one of the largest independent media agencies in the United States, with 10 offices and a roster of clients big and small. In 1997 ICG was sold to Aegis (now Dentsu Aegis) and became the foundational entity of Carat North America.
What next? As habitual builders and creators they founded a new media service with a nugget of insight at the core: smaller clients want the same level of experience and attention that the big clients get.
With a new philosophy and design, they created a nimbler, more efficient and fully transparent media services group catering to small and mid-sized accounts and structured entirely around clients’ business goals. This new model leverages big agency experience and a best practices approach while still offering direct access to senior staff and management.

MEET THE LEADERSHIP TEAM
There is a cliché in the media agency business – after piece of business is won the “Pitch Team” recedes into the background and clients find themselves with an account/planning team long on working hours and short on experience. And that team is tasked with shuffling workload through massive specialist departments. That’s not us.
We are a closely-knit team of seasoned professionals, many with global experience at holding company agencies, who are singularly focused on our clients’ success. And we work as an integral member of our clients’ marketing teams, with a tireless drive to exceed their expectations. Our departments are people a few feet away that we know and like. The average tenure of our client list is over 9 years. Our Account Directors have a minimum of 15 years of experience and they actually work on their clients’ businesses every day.
