Adweek ranked Mindgruve as one of the 75 Fastest Growing Agencies. The annual feature honors agencies large and small from all over the world that have achieved exceptional growth over the past three years. This marks the third time the San Diego-based agency has been recognized. 

“The success of these agencies during a historically challenging time demonstrates the importance of staying nimble, embracing innovation, and finding new opportunities,” says Adweek chief executive officer Juliette Morris. “If they aren’t on your radar yet, they should be.” 

“Our annual roundup is essential reading for the C-suite,” adds chief content officer Ann Marinovich. “The success stories of these agencies point the way forward for the industry.”

Founded in 2001, Mindgruve operates with the simple philosophy of creating groundbreaking work that helps brands drive business growth. Despite the unexpected challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Mindgruve grew rapidly during this time. Last year, the agency’s headcount doubled in size, topping any single-year period of the company’s 20-year history.

It’s an incredible honor to be recognized,” says Chad Robley, Mindgruve CEO and founder. “Over the years our agency has evolved to offer a wide range of services including research, strategy, creative, media, website development, and data science to our diverse roster of clientele.”

Mindgruve continues to gain clients and deepen its expertise in a variety of industries such as consumer packaged goods (CPG), biotechnology, direct to consumer (DTC) eCommerce brands, healthcare, and finance. Recent new business wins include First Horizon Bank, QuietKat, Bay City Brewing Company, Adviser Investments and Dupont.
