Our Legacy

Miner Raymond, Founder

MRA was founded in 1980 by Miner Raymond who, after 26 years of overseeing TV commercial production for numerous brands at Procter & Gamble and working as an Agency Creative, wanted to do something more for the advertising community.

Our firm has changed quite a bit from 1980 when MRA’s Production Advisors only helped clients with TV commercials. Now, we help clients maximize investments in any type of production – including video, digital, print, radio, out of home, and experiential. Additionally, when MRA started more than three decades ago, we were advising on productions only in the U.S.  Now, of course, we’re serving clients throughout the world.

While a lot has changed since MRA opened its doors, one thing remains the same: our purpose. Since 1980, we’ve been on a mission to help clients maximize the value of their production spending and get the finest quality creative at the lowest possible cost.
