Our History

Knudsen, Gardner & Howe, Inc. was founded in 1967 by Don Knudsen, in partnership with two other advertising executives whose names remain on our letterhead, although they are no longer associated with our firm. Tim Knudsen, with the company for 33 years in a variety of account-service assignments, became president of the agency upon the untimely death of
his father in 1987.

We've come a long way since 1967, when gas was $.33 gallon and Cool Hand Luke was playing at movie theaters. Over the years, Knudsen, Gardner & Howe has provided marketing communications to a broad range of manufacturers and service organizations - large and small.

Our foundation was built on business-to-business marketing communications. We have substantial experience marketing to the automotive aftermarket, graphic arts/printing industries, design engineers, P/H/C and DIY industries. But our ability to solve marketing problems with clear, logical thinking, practical recommendations and creative approaches is applicable for all markets. Just check with our clients, who serve as our best salespeople.
