About Us - AE Marketing
About Us

Everything we do is dedicated to building community. We accomplish this by embracing chaos, breaking down barriers and giving to causes bigger than ourselves.


AE Marketing Group began in a rehabbed 5×5 walk-in closet in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood following the worst economy in a generation.

With entrepreneurial grit and a belief that brands are bigger than ad campaigns we quickly added four brands and pushed revenues over seven figures. Since its inception AE has fueled over two-dozen brands, won more than twelve industry and community awards and been profitable for 23 consecutive quarters.  Learn More


We don’t have “clients,” instead we have “customers.” This simple, yet powerful difference helped drive 31 consecutive months of 100% retention.  See a sample of some of the customers we have helped over the years.

In the spring of 2011, AE Marketing Group began its community building and non-profit outreach. Since its inception, AE has provided financial support and volunteer hours to twenty-nine charities and non-profits in the U.S., Central America and Africa. See our Local, National & Global Impact
