Kansas City, MO / Global Headquarters
VML's headquarters is as distinctive as the agency itself. VML is located in an airport terminal building at the Charles B. Wheeler Airport in downtown Kansas City, Mo. The site was Kansas City’s main airport between the 1920s and the early 1970s. The original airport terminal was dedicated in 1927 by Charles Lindbergh, and the airport served as the national TWA hub until 1972. While the still-functioning airport serves a wide array of private planes and small commercial operators, VML uses the terminal as its global headquarters, home to more than 400 VMLers.
Over the years, a variety of VML clients have landed their planes at our back door and entered directly through our Gate One office suite. Many celebrities, entertainers and politicians frequent the downtown airport, as has Air Force One. When VML moved into the space in 1996, we occupied a tiny footprint compared to today. At the time, one of VML’s primary clients was a national airline carrier; establishing our headquarters in an airport terminal seemed uniquely appropriate. Today VML has a thriving client partnership with a different leading national carrier — Southwest Airlines — and our distinctive airport home continues to set us apart.
Kansas City, MO / Arts District
An expanding roster of client partners enabled VML to establish a second Kansas City office in 2004 at the former Marietta Chair Building. The historic four-story, red-brick building — commonly referred to as “20-20” thanks to its street address number — has been home to a variety of entrepreneurial enterprises over the years. VML occupies all of the commercial space in the building. Over the years, major VML client groups have been based at the office, including Colgate-Palmolive, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Kellogg, Kashi and SAP. VMLers enjoy an abundance of art galleries, independent retail shops, music venues, bars and restaurants in the Crossroads Arts District neighborhood surrounding the office.
New York, NY
For more than a decade, VML has enjoyed a strong presence in New York City. VML currently occupies a new space on Columbus Circle, one of New York's celebrated addresses. With nearly 100 VMLers based in New York providing a full range of digital marketing capabilities, the office manages a wide range of clients, including the United States Olympic Committee, Charter Communications, Campbell's and Xerox. VML NYC also works closely with a variety of WPP network agencies.
Opening in 2004, VML Seattle was established to service the agency’s emergent client relationship with Microsoft. Located just north of the city’s downtown, VML Seattle has experienced significant growth with added client partnerships, including T-Mobile and the Seattle Storm women’s WNBA basketball team. From the office rooftop patio, VMLers enjoy an impressive view of downtown Seattle, the famed Space Needle, Lake Union, the Experience Music Project and the Olympic Mountains. Expect this principal VML office to expand as VML Seattle welcomes a growing number of West Coast client engagements.
