During a special event during Advertising Week in New York last week, Ciceron was officially named number 99 on AdWeek’s international list of the worlds’ 100 Fastest Growing Agencies.
“Hey, you can’t have a top 100 list without 99,” replied Ciceron founder and CEO, Andrew Eklund. “Think about the amazing company we’re in: beers on the wall, Luftballoons and don’t forget all of Jay-Z’s problems.”
Eklund chuckles a bit while turning down the volume down on LivePhish.com, a consistent soundtrack that comes from his office. “But seriously, we’re so proud to be recognized alongside so many venerable agencies.”
Started during what Eklund calls “the Internet’s big bang,” Ciceron was one of the first digital agencies in the United States back in 1995. “People have asked about it taking 24 years to become one of the fastest growing agencies, and you simply have to talk about perseverance and the timing of actual digital revolution – which is really now.”
Now, 24 years later, Eklund’s band of “cicerones” has grown tremendously over the past several years. “But we still embrace being scrappy. It opens up a lot of compelling possibilities that aren’t on the radars of larger, corporately-owned agencies.”
Ciceron’s creative/data/media hybrid is currently connecting brands like Warner Music Group, Be The Match, Mall of America, UCare, Georgia Pacific, and the Mother Baby Center with their customers across all screens and experiences, including, dare we say, traditional channels.
