The James G. Elliott Co., Inc. is more than a traditional, independent advertising sales rep firm. The company is structured and managed in much the same way as the national sales operation of a larger publishing company. And we can attract and retain the same professional talent as those companies because we are able to offer similar Fortune 500-type employee programs and benefits. If you have an overflow situation or just need help, please call Jim Elliott at (213) 624-0900 x1514 or email him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
