CHICAGO (January 11, 2021) – For the third year running, Colman Brohan & Davis, Inc. (CBD Marketing) is included in the Chief Marketer 200 (CM200), a prestigious directory listing of the nation’s best brand engagement and activation agencies.
Designed to spotlight firms that are expert in “non-advertising” marketing channels, the 2021 CM200 serves as a resource for companies and brands looking for industry-recognized, vetted agency partners. The program is sponsored by the Chief Marketer publishing organization.
The top agencies were selected based on client references, outstanding case studies, high caliber and consistent work across programs and clients, innovative and creative executions, and bold and inspiring creative concepts and ideas.
“We’re very happy to be named to this competitive, national list and to be recognized as a best-in-class provider of marketing services,” said CBD Marketing CEO Liz Brohan. “It’s testament to the power of our Market What’s Meaningful® approach and our belief that marketing is always in the service of sales, which is at the center of everything that we do. It allows us to deliver positive, measurable outcomes for our clients and help them achieve their business goals.”
As part of the review process, CBD highlighted notable and ongoing clients and campaigns including Whirlpool Corporation, Blue Diamond Almonds, Rabobank, Herzing University and Chaucer Foods. The RISE campaign for the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois, Chicago, as well as the Leading the Movement campaign for U.S. Tsubaki were also featured.
Brohan added that in the past year—even with many unanticipated pandemic-related challenges—CBD Marketing signed several new clients and hired new talent. “We leaned into technologies and processes to make remote work situations productive, meaningful and fun. It’s been a unique experience and we’re especially grateful to be recognized for excellence in such an unusual environment.”
