CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Crain’s Chicago Business has named Blue Chip Marketing Worldwide one of the fastest growing companies in Chicagoland for a sixth time. Blue Chip is the only full-service marketing agency to accomplish this.
The independent agency headquartered in Northbrook, Ill., had appeared on the Crain’s annual list five consecutive years, from 2010 through 2015. This year, the agency reported 245% growth over the past five years, which was enough to land the company 48th on the Crain’s annual list of fastest growing companies.
“It is a privilege to be named to the Crain’s Fast Fifty list for a sixth time,” said Blue Chip Chairman and CEO Stanton Kawer. “Our employees really own this recognition because of the incredible creative, brilliant strategy and outstanding client service they exhibit every day.”
Blue Chip attributed much of its five-year growth to investing in talent from all over the country, increasing proprietary technology to better serve its global partners in real time and Continuum Clinical’s exclusive partnership with Lyft. In addition, Blue Chip touts its new innovation approach, United Thinking, as a differentiator that has helped to win new client accounts. This process leverages a highly collaborative and human-centered approach to deliver the most innovative ideas to Blue Chip’s clients.
The agency’s steadily expanding client roster includes: AbbVie, McCormick & Company, Merck & Co., Inc., Kenilworth, N.J., U.S.A. and Procter & Gamble Co.
The Crain’s Fast Fifty list is released each year, and is a survey of companies with headquarters in the six-county area of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will with 2016 revenue of at least $15 million. Rankings are determined by five-year revenue growth figures.
