WINTER PARK, FL, November 29, 2010—Less than two years after the company’s launch, direct response and brand advertising agency Kre8 Media Inc. is ranked the third-largest local advertising agency by the Orlando Business Journal, with capitalized client billings of $60 million.
Two Orlando agencies—Ypartnership and Fry Hammond Barr Inc.—are ranked #1 and #2, respectively. In all, the Orlando Business Journal ranked 25 advertising agencies.
Kre8, whose expertise includes tracking Web site responses from television commercials for its marketer clients, was founded in January 2009 by T. Lee Cutler. Less than two years later, Kre8 has 15 employees, 8 clients and $60 million in billings.
“We’re honored to be cited by the Orlando Business Journal,” said Cutler. “Being third-largest in billings in less than two years shows that, even in the current difficult advertising economy, agencies that successfully blaze new paths continue to grow and prosper.”
Kre8 Media’s success has enabled it to attract top-level industry talent from Boston, Chicago, New York and other major cities, and from such leading agencies as Carat, Doner, Grey, MediaCom, Mercury Media, OMD and Zimmerman.
Prior to launching Kre8 Media, Cutler, a former local radio station sales manager, was a media consultant to the free to play tutorial poker site PokerStars.net, working out of his home to help the global gaming Web site become the category leader. Since naming his company Kre8 Media in January 2009 and hiring a staff, the agency has added such clients as GoLearn Toys, LifeShield Security and Premier Care in Bathing.
