Discover Our Story

Harrison Media is Metro Detroit’s full-service, female-owned, small-business agency with roots in the big-agency world. In 1998, after a successful stint leading large media departments, Patti Harrison decided to leave that world behind. With fewer layers and less bureaucracy, she could provide a more personalized experience for her clients. That’s what Harrison Media is all about: individualized solutions for an environment that demands them. Two decades later, it’s more important than ever. 

We believe in:

  • The power of strategic media ideas
  • Customer service being second to none
  • The value of relationships and collaboration
  • Transparency & being detailed oriented
  • Giving back to our community

With over $165+million in media spend, 20+ years of being in business and numerous satisfied clients, Harrison Media is the perfect choice for your media needs.
