After adding 11 new full-time employees in 2021, Core Creative ranked #7 on the list of the largest Milwaukee-area advertising agencies. New additions to the team included a new senior healthcare strategist and senior marketing specialist, along with several graphic designers and project leaders. There have been internal promotions as well, including two at the director level. With the total number of local employees now at 68, the ranking— determined by number of local staff—speaks to the success of the agency’s strategic direction and ability to grow despite the many industry challenges set forth by the pandemic.
“We’re very proud of how Core has grown over the past 26 years, but what we’ve seen over the past year in particular has really exceeded our own goals and expectations,” said Ward Alles, president of Core Creative. “We have tremendous clients who understand the value of our partnership, and the work we do helping their businesses has helped ours in return.”
