Mr. R.L.Penny


Penny-Ohlmann, Inc.

Dayton 2, Ohio


Dear Bob:


We, of course, face the change in your agency name with mixed emotions.


As you know, Walter has been with WLWD for some years; and we have always considered him one of our finest people.

So I guess that the only thing that we can do is be philosophical and say our loss is your gain; and we sincerely hope that the fine relationship that we have enjoyed with the Penny  & Penny Advertising Agency will be strengthened by the addition of Walter; and we shall look forward to many many years of mutually beneficial cooperation and helpfulness.


The best of luck to both the agency and Walter from all of us here at WLWD.



Georges J. Gray

Vice President &

General Manager

Penny Ohlmann Neimann

The Ohlmann Group has a rich history that began in Dayton, Ohio in 1949, where the agency was founded as Penny and Penny by Bob Penny and his wife Jean. In 1964, Walter Ohlmann joined the firm. Ralph Neiman came on in 1969 and the firm became Penny/Ohlmann/Neiman. In 2011, P/O/N was renamed The Ohlmann Group to better reflect the agency's ongoing evolution and collaborative nature.
