Bruce Bryant
Title: Vice Chair

A native of Indianapolis, Bruce Bryant launched Promotus Advertising in 1983. During that time, an African American marketing firm was unheard of. 

Bruce was told his agency would fail. Well, Bruce went on to build the oldest and most successful African American-owned agency in the state.


As president and creative director, Bruce oversees all creative services and continues to foster high-caliber creativity for all his clients.

Bruce has promoted some of Indiana’s most acclaimed organizations including NCAA Hall of Champions, Hoosier Lottery, Horseshoe Casino, Pacers Sports & Entertainment,

Indiana Tourism, and Indiana Tobacco Prevention & Cessation, to name a few.


Promotus Advertising is recognized as the premier urban marketing firm in Indiana and serves clients locally, regionally, and nationally.
