New York — (May 28, 2010) — Ad Venture Interactive (AVI) was recently ranked No. 152 among the top 200 Interactive marketing firms in the United States by Advertising Age magazine. The rankings were based on 2009 annual US revenue reported from AVI’s five divisions: PlattForm, PlattForm Higher Education, Beauty Schools Marketing Group, Transportation Marketing Group and Vertical Marketing Group. Last year, Ad Age ranked AVI at No. 175 on its list.
The top 200 listing was published in Ad Age this spring. The publication has a global readership of 198,000 people and includes some of the most high-profile executives and creative minds in the interactive marketing field.
AVI’s ranking on the Ad Age list was powered by the performance of PlattForm based in Lenexa, Kan. The agency’s client base is predominantly in postsecondary education.
“The marketing world has experienced some major changes, as most industries have in the last few years, and it’s been our commitment to client success – and our objective – to continue our substantial growth,” AVI Executive Chairman Michael Platt said. “This ranking is a testament to our employees’ hard work and our clients’ belief in what we do.”
Ad Age’s ranking follows PlattForm’s placement as the Kansas City area’s second-largest marketing firm by The Kansas City Business Journal. The Business Journal also ranked the company No. 82 on its list of top 100 area private-sector employers. The rankings are compiled by total employee numbers and include companies such as Sprint Corporation, Harley-Davidson Motor Company, Bank of America, H&R Block, Cerner Corporation, and Garmin.
