KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gragg Advertising, a full-service, strategic advertising agency in Kansas City, celebrated its 20th Anniversary during 2013. This was truly a monumental year as the agency witnessed record breaking growth, on top of local and national awards and recognition. As a recognized industry leader in the local market, Gragg Advertising is currently under the leadership of agency President and COO Darryl Mattox.
"This type of growth requires a lot of hard work, but just as importantly, we are working smarter," said Mattox. Looking back on 2013, it was the top year of net profit for the agency in its 20 years of existence. "It is safe to say our team has been phenomenal this past year and contributed greatly to our success. I strongly believe employees are our greatest asset and we will always appreciate their continued dedication."
Honored by the Downtown KC Council and Economic Development Corporation for its commitment to the area's revitalization, Gragg continued to strengthen its workforce by hiring local talent and growing the client base with local accounts outside of the education industry. In addition, the Gragg team increased volunteer efforts through the existing Gragg Gives Back program through monthly activities which ultimately collected over three hundred pounds of pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House of Kansas City, provided more than 170 meals to Harvesters, donated supplies to the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City, and created Valentine's Day cards for patients at Children's Mercy Hospital.
"Our employees have embraced the agency's commitment to building a better agency and giving back to our community. We have an enthusiastic committee dedicated to identifying new opportunities for us to get involved and give back year-round," said Mattox. The passion at Gragg is visible in their work as the agency was recognized by the Kansas City Direct Marketing Association at their annual AMBIT Awards for the third consecutive year. In addition, they also achieved national recognition by Inc. Magazine as being among the Top 100 Missouri Companies. "[This] was an exciting year for us and with this extraordinary team in place we are prepared to seize the new opportunities 2014 will present," said Mattox.
