WASHINGTON, May 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- After months of anticipation and planning, Rock Creek Strategic Marketing and CHIEF are proud to announce that they have officially integrated operations and now operate as a single, new agency under the CHIEF brand name. This move is the agency's next evolution, allowing it to advance its vision, while leveraging deep relationships built over 25 years.
Co-founders Margaret and Scott Johnson founded Rock Creek in 1987 and have grown the agency to a team of nearly 100 brand, communications and technology professionals. In 2011 the co-founders, along with Principal, Chris Lester, established CHIEF as a distinct entity under the Rock Creek umbrella to deliver brand strategy to commercial and non-profit clients. Since then, the two practices have collaborated on projects and are now seizing this opportunity to bring deeper capabilities to existing clients and build new relationships. Above all, this move gives CHIEF the opportunity to leverage its increased capacity and expertise, while continuing to deliver visionary work.
"This is the next step in performing on an even bigger stage," says President Margaret Johnson. "Our existing clients and relationships have already put us in the global sphere and we're ready to work in an even larger capacity, solving bigger and more complex challenges."
Rock Creek and CHIEF quickly established a foothold across all sectors and with clients of all sizes, delivering profound results for a deep and broad range of projects. Together, CHIEF and Rock Creek have consistently been listed among the top creative firms by the Washington Business Journal for its ability to deliver on client objectives every time, regardless of scope or scale.
Collectively the agency has reached a new level of expertise and excellence in creative, strategic and technology solutions with a client roster that includes Hilton, Yale, Department of Justice, FEMA, Newman's Own Foundation and YWCA, to name a few.
CHIEF's new headquarters are located in a state-of-the-art office in the heart of Washington, DC, sitting right on the city's historic Dupont Circle. The space will serve as a hub of creative exploration and innovation for our work with clients. The office space will also serve the broader DC technology, design and marketing community as a home for regular thought leadership summits and events.
CHIEF, a Rock Creek Publishing Group company, is a minority-owned, woman-owned small business (WOSB). Learn more about the new CHIEF at www.agencyCHIEF.com.
