Monique Nelson is the chair and CEO of UniWorld Group, Inc. Approaching its 50tht year in business, UWG is the longest-standing, full-service, multicultural advertising agency in the United States.
Headquartered in New York City with offices in Detroit, Atlanta, Memphis and Miami, UWG is certified minority-owned.
Its award-winning work has continually broken new ground through nearly five decades of advertising history. Clients include Ford Motor Company, Colgate-Palmolive, US Marine Corps and The Home Depot to name a few.
The agency was founded by Byron Lewis in 1969. When he decided to step down as CEO, the technologically savvy Nelson was his logical choice in bridging the company's past with its increasingly digital future.
Nelson’s expertise, coupled with UWG’s unique history is second to none in the multicultural community. DDBS is pleased to have its involvement.
