WILMINGTON – After more than two decades on North Washington Street, the marketing communications agency Aloysius Butler & Clark (AB&C) has moved to King Street.

The award-winning regional ad agency had called the historic brownstone at 819 N. Washington St. home for many years, but after the COVID pandemic the firm decided to reassess its needs, CEO Paul Pomeroy told Delaware Business Times.

“We felt that we needed a modern space that really sort of met what our evolving needs were,” he said. “It was exciting to have that opportunity to go in and recognize that AB&C was moving into the future, and we found a place that could help us be a part of moving into the future too.”

In early May, it moved to a modern, 10,000-square-foot office on the third floor of Courthouse Square, the 600 N. King St. office tower owned by Kentucky-based investment firm Real Capital Solutions. With AB&C continuing to utilize a hybrid work model, the office space is laid out with collaboration at its heart.

“The old building was chopped up in so many different ways that the whole collaboration thing created the impetus for looking for new space,” Pomeroy said.

Notably, AB&C arrives at an office tower where rival marketing firm Bounteous had offices before the pandemic but has since shuttered them in favor of moving its local staff fully remote.

While the firm isn’t mandating a return to the office, AB&C felt that it was important to retain a physical presence in the city where it was founded. Pomeroy said AB&C also recently invested in a new leased space in Philadelphia’s Center City, where it aims to increase its market presence.

Pomeroy said the new building, with modern amenities and being just a block away from restaurants on Market Street, will make it attractive to future hires for the agency as well. AB&C has creative, digital, PR, media and social media, account services, accounting, executive leadership and other roles all working out of Wilmington.

“In an industry that is, in its nature, forward thinking and intended to be cutting-edge, it’s nice to have a space that’s going to have that same look and feel about it,” Pomeroy said.

Meanwhile, the former AB&C offices on Washington Street were acquired by Limen Recovery + Wellness, a sober living center in Wilmington, for $1.7 million, according to land records. The nonprofit aims to assist hundreds of recently recovered individuals at the site once renovated, according to a report by Town Square Live.
