“We did that before it was cool to do it,” Tharp says of working from her house. “And now that it’s cool to do it, we’re not going to do it anymore.”
She’s taking two suites at the Stables at 322 S. Mosley.
“It’s got a lot of character,” Tharp says of the Stables. “It’s centrally located.”
She says it will be good to have some privacy back at her house, and her employees will feel more free to come and go at any hour.
Nicole Copp, Tharp’s daughter, who also is a media planner and buyer at the agency, likes the idea of a more intimate office at the Stables compared to what they have now.
Currently, each of the company’s four employees are fairly spread out.
“The whole basement is her office,” Copp says. Now, she says, “It’ll be a lot more collaborative.”
There is a downside to moving, though, Copp says.
“We and our clients and our reps really like our boat ride meetings, so that will be missed,” she says. “Maybe once in a while we can come back and … relive our boat days.”
