Hart, one of Ohio’s largest independent marketing and advertising agencies, with more than a 50-year history, employs about 80 people, 60 based in Toledo and another 20 in Columbus.

In March, 2018 the agency moved from Maumee to a 20,000 square foot space in Downtown Toledo, comprising floors five and six of the Hylant Building at 811 Madison Ave. Designed to enhance collaboration among employees and clients, construction included connecting the two floors with a staircase to increase accessibility between team members.


The new space is furnished with tables, chairs and installations that were sourced locally and created uniquely for the Hart office.

“Toledo has always been my hometown,” said Mike Hart, president and CEO. “I’m proud that the next great step for our agency is also a contribution to the revitalization of the urban core of our city.”
