Ad Age Names Empower a Standout Agency
The Creative Media Agency is the First Cincinnati-Based Company to Make the Magazine’s Agency A-List Award Roster.

CINCINNATI (April 17, 2019) – The Creative Media Agency,  Empower,  celebrated with the best of the best at Ad Age’s A-List Awards Gala in NYC held at Cipriani. Recognized as an Agency A-List Standout, Empower stood out for its record-breaking revenue growth three years in a row, a unique creative-media approach and world-class talent at the helm of the agency’s Cincinnati headquarters and new Chicago office. Read the independent agency’s full profile in Ad Age.

As described by the industry-leading publication, with budget pressures, conservative clients and continually shifting marketing models, it’s harder now than ever for agencies to stand out. But the winners of the Ad Age A-List and Creativity Awards are the big, bold thinkers—the risk takers that are shaping the future of marketing.

“It’s validating to see others take note of the potential I saw in Empower nearly a year ago when I joined as president and chief operating officer,” said Rob FitzGerald. “As we continue to build The Creative Media Agency and bridge the gap between media and message under one roof, we’re empowering clients like Ashley HomeStore, Brooks Running, GNC and PetSmart to perform their best and achieve their business goals.”
