At Esquire, we strive to be the advertising company our clients brag about.

To achieve this vision, we commit to our mission every day to provide customized data-driven targeted advertising with results-focused optimizations to maximize business growth.


Founded by Eric Grindley in 2012, Esquire Advertising is an Ad Tech company with a full-service in-house advertising and marketing agency pushing the limits of advertising performance. The company uses its own unique combination of marketing strategies and proprietary technologies to pinpoint in-market consumers using mobile and internet-connected device matching technology.

We started with humble beginnings in a single room office with a small team of dedicated employees looking to bring meaningful change to the industry. In its last several years, Esquire has expanded significantly in size and scope. Presently Esquire Advertising has become one of the fastest growing companies in the United States. In the years 2020 and 2021 Esquire Advertising was named the fastest growing privately held company in the state of North Carolina.
