Founded in 2017 as a one-member “grass roots” community outreach consultancy, Lincoln Barretta Consulting was established when Founder, Lou Jimenez, merged his passion for school choice with his desire to help businesses grow.
Due to the overwhelming success in helping numerous schools achieve and exceed their target enrollment goals, Lincoln Barretta expanded into a full-fledged professional marketing firm in 2019.
Our company name (Lincoln Barretta) reflects two important aspects of our company culture; honesty and humility. Historically, the name ‘Lincoln’ has always been synonymous with honesty. We hold every member of our team to this very high standard. Additionally, as a tribute to our humble beginnings, we named the company after ‘Barretta Court’, the street name of our first office address.
