The first half of 2019 was the best Q1 and Q2 for revenue in AE Marketing Group’s eight-year history. The Chicago-based brand, customer experience, and co-creation company also doubled its customer portfolio, which includes a mix of technology, healthcare, manufacturing, and non-profit organizations throughout the country.
“Our continued sales growth, combined with an expanded customer portfolio, validates our unique market position,” said AE Marketing Group CEO, Brian Walker. “We consistently delight our customers and surprise the competition through our enterprise-brand mindset.”
Beyond revenue, the first half of 2019 was a busy period across the company’s product and service categories. Nineteen different video assets were created for multiple US brands, including a follow-up to the 2018 Ad Age + Modern Healthcare Video Campaign of the Year for Network Health. Speaking engagements and workshops tripled year-over-year. We shared insights on branding, customer experience, and digital marketing with eleven different B2B companies, including two international brands. And, the award-winning Brand Lab Series™ began production on its fifth season with executives from Pimco, Honeywell, Fifth Third Bank, Showpad, and more.
“AE Marketing Group’s creative approach to storytelling captured the essence of the youth we serve and well-positioned our non-profit for its upcoming Power of Potential campaign,” said UCAN CEO, Zack Schrantz. “The videos AE produced contributed to a record amount of revenue raised for our 150-year-old brand.”
This news comes after a year full of industry awards including the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts naming the Brand Lab Series™ the Top Business and Technology Podcast and a third consecutive year on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies.
