Back to Back! Allen & Gerritsen Named Advertising Age’s Best Place to Work in Marketing and Media for the Second Consecutive Year


For the second consecutive year, Allen & Gerritsen (a&g) has been ranked number one by Advertising Age as its “Best Place to Work in Marketing and Media” in the United States.

The announcement comes on the heels of a terrific 2011, in which Allen & Gerritsen racked up three “Best Places” awards, including top-5 finishes in both the Boston Business Journal and Boston Globe surveys in addition to AdAge’s recognition. This repeat validation is indicative of the innovative and dynamic corporate culture that CEO Andrew Graff has created at a&g.

“We are overjoyed that Allen & Gerritsen was named the Best Place to Work by AdAge for a second year in a row,” said Allen & Gerritsen CEO Andrew Graff. “I think it’s a testament to our vibrant corporate culture that we’re able to balance the needs of a multi-generational workforce – and have fun doing it.”

AdAge’s list of Best Places to Work in Marketing and Media compiled the results of more than 15,000 employer and employee surveys from more than 180 companies across the country to determine the top companies.

“We know talent is a key issue in fostering both a successful agency and a strong industry and that’s why Ad Age is delighted to again honor the Best Places to Work in Media and Marketing,” said Abbey Klaassen, Editor of Advertising Age. “These companies are the best of the best — and Allen & Gerritsen again tops the list — for creating unique and vibrant work cultures that foster employee development and well being. Congrats to all the honorees.”

Allen & Gerritsen is entering the final stages of its planned move into Boston’s Innovation district in the summer of 2012, and is projected to add between 20-30 new employees, and build on its strengths as an independent advertising agency for the next generation of marketing.
