Direct marketing veteran Joel Margulies partnered with Beverly Hills, CA-based entertainment and management firm Diversified Entertainment Inc. to create a full-service strategic marketing and branding agency.


The Margulies Agency starts with charter clients such as Safeway Supermarkets, Magic Johnson's Fundamentals of Basketball, The Cell ResQ Emergency Power System from Packaged Power, Asset Marketing, Bonus Mile Entertainment, Thermo-Acoustic Technologies and Kleen Technologies.

He was most recently co-founding principal and partner at Transactional Marketing Partners, a relationship marketing firm for the electronic retailing industry. He spent time at CBS Television and ad agencies Ted Bates, Klemtner, DDB, Lintas Worldwide and Ogilvy & Mather.
