Marshall & Bruce Co.
The printing industry has changed considerably since 1865 and many printers have come and gone over the last century and a half. At M&B, we understand that staying ahead of the curve is critical to staying in business.
We know that successful projects result when we understand our customers’ needs and have what it takes to deliver. That’s why we’ve always invested in state-of-the-art equipment, continually diversified our capabilities, hired experienced employees, and treated them like family.
We believe the greatest thing we can offer our customers is the experience that has been learned and passed down from generation to generation at Marshall & Bruce for almost 150 years.
Two successful ad men, Dale Gish and Hank Sherwood, started Gish, Sherwood & Friends in 1978 after many years of friendship. Both shared big agency experience and a common belief that building true partnerships with clients would be the key to success.
After many years working with Dale and Hank, Jeff Lipscomb and Roland Gibbons took over ownership in 1997 and began writing the next chapter. They quickly made the first interactive team in Nashville and followed their vision to provide all advertising disciplines underneath one roof. They saw the advantages of a fully integrated agency before it became an industry trend. And together, they still continue to add new capabilities to better serve our clients.
Today, we are simply called GS&F. And though our name has shifted and our services have significantly expanded, building positive partnerships with our clients—just as Dale and Hank believed 40 years ago—is still at the core of what we do.
Element 47 (formerly Keystone)
Hand your marketing and technology pains off to Element 47 (formerly Keystone). Our name is changing to Element 47. That’s about it though… we’re the same people, in the same office (seriously, we’re not moving,) doing the same things, the same way we’ve always done them. Right.

“MARKETING IN” SPONSORS
Discontentment can be found in every human heart. Often times it can lead to a resigned indifference, but for us it's a spark that lights a burning fire within our hearts. We're a team who's constantly discontented with our skills, our output, and our ability to tell a great story. It's this discontentment that drives us to be better. We call this our productive discontentment.
