Thirty years ago, lawyers and colleagues, Michael Stone and Seth Siegel, founded Beanstalk – a brand licensing agency focused on leveraging the power of the licensing business model for corporate brands. Until then, licensing, with a few exceptions, had traditionally and primarily been a tool used for entertainment properties to sell products that bring characters and stories to life in the hands of the consumer. Beanstalk’s mission was to demonstrate how this legal tool could help corporate and other non-entertainment brands achieve their brand and marketing goals and objectives, while protecting the trademark and generating revenue. In 30 years, Beanstalk has experienced

tremendous growth

and made a positive impact on the licensing industry. It is now the 30th anniversary of the agency, and Beanstalk aims to build awareness of licensing and its benefits across the marketing community. 

Since 1992, the agency has evolved alongside its clients by expanding its global presence and diversifying

its service offering. Beanstalk was founded in New York City with key clients including The Coca-Cola Company, Harley-Davidson and The Greenwich Workshop. The New York office continues to be the global headquarters of the agency with additional offices in London, Miami and Cincinnati, as well as

recently opened offices

in Mexico City and Sao Paulo to service Latin America, and strategic partnerships around the world. In 2005, Omnicom, a leading marketing communications holding company, acquired Beanstalk in what was the first-ever acquisition of a licensing agency by a holding company. Omnicom offers Beanstalk and its clients unparalleled access to complementary marketing services and resources. In 2011, Beanstalk acquired Nancy Bailey & Associates, combining talent, expertise and relationships to better serve both agencies’ clients.
