Brandon Among Charlotte’s Largest Advertising & Marketing Agencies

Brandon, a data-driven, digitally-centric, integrated marketing agency, has been named the third-largest advertising & marketing agency in Charlotte by the Charlotte Business Journal. The agency jumped five spots from its ranking in 2021.

The Charlotte Business Journal determined the rankings by number of full-time employees, local office revenue defined by the sum of three items: commissions on media billings, markups on materials and services, and actual fees. Brandon’s total local office revenue grew to $10.5 million in 2021 with Wastequip, ScanSource, and Nucor as some of the agency’s notable accounts.

“It’s been incredible to be a part of our growth in the Charlotte market,” said Cary Murphy, Brandon’s Regional President. “We’ve been climbing steadily up the Business Journal’s list for the last five years, and we’ve just scratched the surface of what’s possible. Our team and capabilities are in high demand as we continue to expand our footprint in Charlotte.”

Brandon is an accredited brand strategy agency that specializes in B2B, healthcare, financial services, telecommunications, outdoor lifestyle, lifestyle apparel, travel and tourism, consumer packaged goods, real estate, utilities, and health & fitness categories. Along with its Charlotte office, the agency operates virtually and via home offices in Charleston, S.C., Myrtle Beach, S.C., Orlando, Fla. and Sofia, Bulgaria.
