Orchestrating the Muzak
After 75 years, Muzak has celebrated its deliberate evolution from being recognized as the leading producer of ‘elevator music,’ to being seen as an industry vanguard for environmental brand experiences. Says CEO Steve Villa, “I am really excited that we are no longer waiting for things to happen, and are creating our own destiny.

The Naming Guys
“Our clients think of us as the naming guys although we do so much more,” says President Brannon Cashion. Their list of clients is so familiar it could be read straight from the shelves of our kitchen pantries, living rooms, garages and offices—names like Nestlé, Sara Lee, Motorola, Dell, Goodrich, Duracell, Pfizer…and these are but a fraction of their followers.
