Fort Wayne and northeast Indiana have a great tradition of ad and marketing agencies, so it's an honor to be at the top of the Business Weekly's list again
Fort Wayne, Ind. (Vocus) January 14, 2009
Once again, LaBov & Beyond tops the list of full-service marketing and advertising agencies in northeast Indiana.
In its annual ranking of the region's largest advertising and marketing firms, the Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly listed LaBov & Beyond first, based on both number of employees and annualized billings for the 2007 calendar year. LaBov & Beyond ranked highest both in number of employees (49) and in 2007 billings ($44.8 million).
Perhaps the most notable aspect of LaBov & Beyond's continued growth and success is that its client base comes from a relatively small pool of candidates. That's because the agency's client niche (primarily corporations with dealer, distributor or sales networks) encompasses less than 1 percent of all companies.
"Fort Wayne and northeast Indiana have a great tradition of ad and marketing agencies, so it's an honor to be at the top of the Business Weekly's list again," says Barry LaBov, president and CEO. "In these challenging times, the size of our agency and scope of our capabilities enables us to meet the varying needs of our clients. It's a strength we never take lightly or for granted."
LaBov and Beyond added six new employees in 2008, five who are based at its Fort Wayne headquarters, with the sixth at its new Herndon, VA, operations. The agency experienced a robust and exciting 2008 as well, thanks to several sizable, high-profile projects, including product launches for Volkswagen of America and Audi of America; public and media relations work for Steel Dynamics, Inc.; custom publishing for Volkswagen and Terex Mining; and trade show and press event services for Terex Mining.
