Account Management

At C-K, our mission is simple: Make friends, not ads®. It’s how we helped Porsche’s first luxury sedan—the Panamera— become a smashing success and helped catapult Corona Extra to America’s #1 import.

Our friend-making mindset not only drives our ideas, it also drives our structure. We’re built without silos or competing interests to truly tap into an ever-expanding range of disciplines, from advertising to SEM/SEO to social to analytics—whatever it takes to create compelling brand experiences. This philosophy has fueled our growth, making C-K the nation’s second largest independent ad agency and placing us among the top 20 advertising and digital firms in the country with nearly 500 employees and almost $1 billion in annual billings.

Headquartered in Chicago with offices in New York and Milwaukee, we represent major brands across virtually every industry, including Benihana, BIC Razors, BRP (Ski-Doo, Sea-Doo, Evinrude), Cedar Fair Amusement Parks (Cedar Point, Knott’s Berry Farm and 10 others), Casa Noble, Corona Extra, Edward Jones, General Tire, Giant Foods, Heinz, Nikon, Pacifico Beer, Porsche, Roundy’s (Pick ‘n Save and Mariano’s) and Vitamix. We are all about outcome, not output. And our results prove it. For more information, visit


About C-K New York:

Many agencies have an office in New York. C-K on the other hand, has a New York office.

Here we take the best of the C-K DNA and douse it with what makes New York, New York. Tough, tenacious, spirited, creative, street smart. Never at a loss for a point of view, an original thought or a solve, and never short of hustle.

The New York office is perfectly situated in the historic Flatiron district near Union Square Market, so it is always brimming with a mix of fresh produce, flowers, ideas, and often, a dog or two.

Our team has roots in agencies and non-agencies big and small. We respect discipline but we embrace our more entrepreneurial heart. We thrive on solving the most pressing problems brands face. That’s how we have maintained strong relationships with top clients in categories such as apparel, consumer goods, food and drink, sports, financial services and many more.

And when we’re not building successes, we’re off pursuing our other passions – like spending time with our families, running, dancing, painting, working wood, cooking, gardening, kicking soccer balls and collecting sneakers.
