AMP Agency, a full-service marketing agency with over 300 employees, earned a place on Adweek’s inaugural global list of fastest-growing agencies, according to Adweek.
Gary Colen, chief executive officer and founder of AMP Agency said that “We’re honored and incredibly proud that our business efforts have been recognized by Adweek. Clients come to us because, in today’s complex marketing landscape, they need a partner with a radical approach to creativity. We use small, intensely integrated teams with varied skill sets. Our teams question industry norms, allowing us to connect disparate dots in new, unexpected ways and drive businesses forward.”
Colen has been instrumental in growing the agency from a regional, experiential business targeting college students into an award-winning national agency with offices in Boston, New York, Seattle, and Los Angeles. The agency also operates Austin-based Adlucent, a performance-based marketing technology and analytics company that provides AMP Agency clients with performance media capabilities.
Together, the AMP offices work in a fully-integrated way across all touchpoints using proprietary data, behavioral analysis, and predictive analytics tools to better understand client audiences and drive business results through creative marketing solutions.
Doug Zanger, Adweek senior editor for creativity and agencies noted that “We are thrilled to be presenting this honor to a wide range of successful agencies covering 21 different disciplines. From full-service to performance, creative consultancies to experiential, we see a very bright future for agencies and this award is a testament to these award winners’ drive and dedication to the industry.”
The entrepreneurial spirit from the agency’s founders continues to be a driving force within the agency and fuels its passion to create unconventional ideas that grow brands. Michael Mish, General Manager, AMP East said that “AMP’s growth is a testament of our people and the platforms created within our company. We’ve been able to attract an amazing staff that’s courageous, collaborative, genuinely curious to explore beyond the status quo, and hungry to make a difference.”
