Mobium selected as Country’s Top Small Agency by Crain’s BtoB Magazine
It’s a five-peat for Mobium Creative Group. The uber-creative B-to-B agency was just recognized as the country’s TOP small business-to-business agency by Crain’s BtoB Magazine. BtoB Magazine releases its annual “Top 50 Agencies” list based on a nationwide survey and Mobium has made the cut of the top three for the past five years in a row. This is the first year as the number one small business-to-business agency.
Several factors contributed to Mobium’s success in this ranking: Mobium saw a 20% increase in international clients, a 60% increase in global campaigns and a substantial increase in overall revenues. And the agency took a critical step in its development by “cloning” itself.
“If two heads are better than one, then two thriving agencies must be better than one as well. That’s what Mobium Creative Group found out when it "cloned" its Chicago office with another one in Minneapolis. Gordon Hochhalter, managing partner, prefers cloning to simply opening an office or branch because the Minneapolis Mobium is a standalone agency, not just an outpost of the original,” stated the publication in the April 2, 2007 issue.
"We have made this list several times, however being cited as the top agency in the country has a special feeling. Warm and fuzzy? No, more like the satisfaction of making a difference. We did some insanely great work for a lot of great clients with really cool problems, and that’s what we thrive on. Helping them turn the tremendous changes in the way business branding and communications takes place today into a competitive advantage is the real stuff. Getting recognized for it is the icing on the cake,” says Gordon Hochhalter, Managing Partner, Mobium Creative Group.
