With the capabilities to now provide everything in-house, The Thomas Group, who recently acquired Interstate Graphics, Inc.’s Sevierville division, has become the largest full-service advertising and marketing agency in Sevierville providing its clientele with leading-edge advertising and marketing, printing, mailing, and website capabilities. The Thomas Group has been known throughout the years for their innovative graphic design and their continuous support of Sevier County and its surrounding areas. By acquiring Interstate Graphics, Inc.’s printing processes and capabilities, The Thomas Group will maintain their slogan of “One Agency…One Source”, by keeping their clientele’s print production in-house which will lower client costs, increase quality, and allow a quicker turn-around time. The Thomas Group’s President and CEO, Andrew Byrd, born and raised in Sevier County, has been in the advertising and tourism industry for over 23 years. He has become a prominent force in the advertising arena, and consistently provides his clientele with innovative and affordable ways for them to reach their target market. When asked about the concept behind purchasing Interstate Graphics, Inc., Byrd stated, “We are privileged to help keep the Sevier County economy strong by providing a one-stop marketing and advertising agency that delivers the capabilities and quality previously only found in outside agencies. It has been our goal since day one to remain true to our beliefs and give back to the community that we’ve loved and been a part of for so many years.” Integrating Interstate Graphics, Inc. into The Thomas Group organization will keep advertising dollars spent by local businesses in Sevier County allowing more opportunities to attract tourism and put that money back into the community. “The ultimate goal is to see our community prosper and continue to grow, which will be beneficial for all of Sevier County and its surrounding areas,” Byrd said. Throughout the years, as The Thomas Group has continued to grow, Byrd has always remembered the community that has given him their support. He is actively involved in civic events such as the Pigeon Forge Rotary Club and United Way. Also, involved in mission work in Brazil, Grenada, and Trinidad, where they take food and medical supplies up and down the Amazon River several times a year, and help to build churches and schools. Whether it is in advertising and marketing, or in civic events, Byrd continuously provides others with excellent service by offering customers a myriad of advertising options.
