H&L Partners is a team of global advertising and marketing veterans who have shaped our vision and expertise in decades of experience with huge, networked agencies. Yet, we’ve also learned from the failures of their layered bureaucracies and the shortcomings of trying to be everything to every brand.

We specialize in two dynamic verticals: Retail/Franchise and Destination Travel. In no other categories are the sales factors more acutely local and the marketing influencers more broadly global. This isn’t territory for the faint of heart. It’s where our locally activated, nationally savvy professionals in San Francisco, St. Louis, Phoenix, Miami, Charlotte, Chicago, and Atlanta thrive.
