Blackjet Takes Off to The Bahamas to Mark its 15 Year Anniversary

In celebration of its first 15 years and capping off a banner 2023, the Toronto brand and business consultancy is flying its team to The Bahamas for some much-needed R&R and a healthy dose of inspiration.

The past 15 years has seen a lot of change at Blackjet. It was founded in 2009, mainly as a design firm. In the next decade and a half, it would evolve and augment its practice to include advertising and content with a distinct emphasis on strategy. The team, which in the beginning counted fewer than 10, has grown to 35, and the original Toronto office is now joined by satellites in London and Chicago. Last year Blackjet acquired Spider Marketing and began to formalize directional pivot towards consulting with a focus on brand and business growth.    

‘It feels like the right way to celebrate the past 15 years and kick off the next chapter,’ says Rob Galletta, Blackjet’s CEO and CCO. ‘We’ve frequently asked our clients to step outside their comfort zones and it’s good to practice what you preach. Not that trading Toronto for The Bahamas in the dead of winter is exactly uncomfortable, but any change of scenery is good creative fuel.’
