Penny/Ohlmann/Neiman Advertising, Inc., Saturday announced three new executive assignments, staff additions and expansion of its facilities.
Bob Penny moves from president to chairman of the board and Walter Ohlmann moves from executive vice president to president of the agency.
Dwight Mitchell, who joined the agency as an account executive in 1970, moves into the newly created position of director of public relations.
Mitchell said the agency now has taken over the entire building at 1605 N. Main St. where the agency has been located since 1968. He said the added space will accommodate new graphic arts equipment that will give the agency “one of the most comprehensively self-sufficient graphic arts departments in the advertising and promotion industry.”
Beeba’s experience includes seven years with General Electric Co. in Winston-Salem, N.C., and two years as group art director with the E.F. MacDonald Co. Rupp was with L.M. Berry and Co. eight years and the E.F. MacDonald Co. three years.
Founded as Penny & Penny Advertising in 1949 by Bob and Jean Penny, the agency changed to Penny/Ohlmann in 1964 when Walter Ohlmann joined Bob Penny as a partner. It was renamed again in 1969 when Ralph Neiman joined as a partner.
