At C-K, our mission is simple: Make friends, not ads.®

Great brands don’t just have great sales. They have friends. Friends shop without a coupon. Friends see past what’s temporarily in style. Friends are with you for years, not just a quarter. That’s why we believe: The brand with the most friends wins.

This mindset drives all our ideas, and even our structure. We’re built without silos or profit centers or competing interests. Without turf battles, we’re able to rethink the idea of the “team” and even the “creative team” to truly tap into an ever-expanding range of disciplines, from public relations to CRM to analytics—whatever it takes to create compelling brand experiences. Whatever it takes to make friends.

It’s how we helped Porsche’s first luxury sedan—the Panamera— become a smashing success. It’s how we helped catapult Corona Extra to America’s #1 import. And it’s driven our own growth. C-K is the second largest independent agency in the U.S., with more than 500 employees and $1 billion in annual billings. Headquartered in Chicago with offices in New York, Milwaukee and Phoenix, we represent major brands across virtually every industry, including BRP (Ski-Doo, Sea-Doo, Evinrude), Cedar Fair Amusement Parks (Cedar Point, Knott’s Berry Farm and 10 others), Cetaphil, Corona Extra, Edward Jones, Heinz (Ketchup, Smart Ones, Classico, Ore-Ida, Steam n’ Mash), Johnsonville Sausage, MGM Grand, Patrón, Peapod, Porsche, Spice Islands and Vitamix.
