An invested team by your side for your marketing journey.


A trusted ally that helps you win

For over 10 years, we have been building relationships and brands all over Middle Tennessee and beyond.

We’re a hardworking, deep-thinking bunch. Not your typical agency, we have expertise that spans 3 generations, making sure we look at every business challenge from every possible angle.

Why do we do what we do?

We want to move the needle for your organization. We want your brand to be remembered. Otherwise, what is the point?

We are obsessed with great advertising, building trust, and forming solid relationships that allow us to even better do what we do.


What to expect from the B&C team

Engaging with Barker & Christol means you get a full-service team. We don’t provide cookie-cutter ideas and solutions. We look at all angles with a broad base of experience and advertising know-how.

We have all the core competencies you’d expect from a leading agency—but our temperament, personality and ability to ask the right questions and get to the heart of the problem is what we think really sets us apart.

Partners, Brooks Christol and Steve Barker
