Fifty-four years ago, Hart was founded by entrepreneur Thomas Hart, a hardworking visionary who created an art studio in his basement and grew his knowledge of local politics into a successful political advertising firm. Today, Tom Hart’s son, Mike, and a team of 65 creatives, strategists and support staff have grown that vision into a thriving marketing communications firm with capitalized billings of $83 million and a diverse client base of local, regional and globally recognized brands. Hart remains independent and 100% privately owned, with offices in Columbus and Toledo, Ohio.
