The story of Dagmar begun 50 years ago
Dagmar, more commonly known as “Dagu”, was founded in 1973 when a team focused on media broke away from SEK advertising agency. At that time, it was completely new for media planning to be separated into its own company. The management of our company was appointed to Helge Kreutzman. It took a lot of courage to rise against the established practices of the industry. Our first employees indeed faced quite a bit of resistance to change.
The early days of Dagmar were guided by the employees’ fervent desire to be on the client’s side. They wanted to enhance the impact of every penny spent on advertising, in order to produce results.
Everything that now moves in nanoseconds through wires and clouds, was in the early days carried by bicycle couriers. In the 70s, TV advertising time could only be bought for a few hours. There was no radio advertising, let alone digital. Now, there are almost limitless possibilities in both channels and experts.
The passion for impactful marketing has not faded over the years. This passion has been the reason to innovate and develop new solutions. Over the years, a huge number of marketing experts have passed through our “marketing high school” for the entire industry. We were also among the first in the industry to adopt an internet page in the 1990s: Dagmar’s internet page was established at http://www.inet.fi/dagmar/index.htm and is still visible.
Today, we seamlessly combine data, strategy, creativity, development, and growth. We train companies for the future, assist in digital transformation, and do effective encounter planning for both Finland and the world.
With courage, passion, and strong expertise, our story will continue for the next 50 years.
