After two decades in the agency business, George Sweda founded Sweda Advertising in 2004. Today, the agency has blossomed into a $2M+ full-service shop that includes some of the most respected clients in the Wilkes-Barre Scranton DMA. George holds a Master’s degree in advertising from Syracuse University’s SI Newhouse School of Public Communications and an undergraduate degree in Communications from the The University of Scranton.
Married, with three children in college, George balances his family activities and professional commitment to his clients with a significant investment of time in the community. His involvement in the Northeastern Pennsylvania region is reflected in his volunteer activities, which include serving as a Board Member of Coaches vs. Cancer of NEPA; Board Member Lackawanna County Visitors Bureau; Steering Committee Member: Griffin Pond Makeover Building Campaign; Marywood University & The University of Scranton Guest Lecturer; Small Business Council Member: Greater Scranton Chamber of Commerce.
On most weekends George can be found volunteering at Griffin Pond Animal Shelter spending time with animals who are waiting for their forever homes.
