Greg Engelbrecht graduated from California State University, Chico in 1987 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations and minor in Marketing. Upon graduation, he began his career with Davis and Doran Advertising, a New York based firm with offices in both New York and London at that time.
When Davis and Doran sought to expand its operations to the West Coast, Greg played an integral part in assisting the company’s Vice President with the opening of the Santa Clara office, and again a year and half later with the opening of the Los Angeles office. During his tenure at Davis and Doran, Greg handled accounts such as Fujitsu, Knott’s Berry Farm, Varnet and Taco Bell.
In 1993, Greg returned to Chico to open his own full-service marketing and advertising agency, Engelbrecht Advertising. Since its inception, Engelbrecht Advertising has grown to be the largest advertising agency from Sacramento to the Oregon border, representing dozens of national and local clients such as R. W. Knudsen, Colusa Casino, Lares Dental, Black Bear Diner corporate franchise, Corning Ford and several North State casinos. Through a philosophy of honesty, integrity and trust, Greg has cultivated strong relationships within the community which serve as the backbone of his successful company.
