I’m delighted to be back in the agency environment, and I could not imagine a better home than Yes&,said Bomstein. “It is an extraordinarily talented team, and I am having a great time bringing them together with my network.


The American Advertising Federation named him as one of its 10 “Advertising Legends” in 2013. Also, he received a Lifetime Achievement award in 2000 from the Builders Association of Northern Virginia for his work in marketing for local homebuilding companies. 


Howard is one of Washington’s most creative advertising minds,” said Jeb Brown, chairman of Yes&. “He and I have been friends and competitors many years, and I have always respected his insights into what makes compelling advertising. I hated to compete against him, and now I am glad that he and I are on the same team."


Bomstein joins Yes& at a time of high growth for the agency. He is one of several senior hires in recent months. 

Yes& is the Washington, DC-based marketing agency that brings commercial, association, and government clients the unlimited power of “&” – using a full suite of branding, digital, event, marketing, public relations, and creative capabilities to deliver meaningful and measurable results.
