Chief marketer top 200 agencies of 2021

Merit has been featured in the 2021 Chief Marketer 200, Chief Marketer’s exclusive listing of best-in-class brand engagement and activation agencies. This makes 2021 the 5th year in a row for the Harrisburg-based agency. 


“I couldn’t be prouder of us as an agency, our clients, and everything we’ve been able to accomplish,” said Adam Vasquez, Merit’s CEO. “Despite all the obstacles of 2020, we’ve been able to break through as an agency and find creative, innovative solutions for our clients.”


The annual list draws submissions from across the country, with the magazine’s Editorial Board selecting winners based on several criteria including insightful client testimonials; outstanding case study submissions; high caliber, consistent work across programs and clients; innovative and creative executions; and bold and inspiring ideas that are moving the industry forward. Winning agencies span multiple categories, including Sports & Entertainment, Retail, Digital/Content, Social Media, Design and Innovation, B2B Demand Gen and Engagement Marketing, and more. 


“In a year when brand engagement and activation took on entirely new meaning, the agencies recognized in this year’s CM200 quickly took action to help their clients innovate and move forward,” said Jessica Heasley, Group Editor and Publisher at Chief Marketer in the publisher’s announcement on the winners. “The CM200 represents a comprehensive portfolio of strategic partners who can help brands evolve and thrive in 2021 and beyond.”


Merit was named alongside some of the industry’s most well-known and respected agencies, including Droga5, Digital and Critical Mass. 


“With Market Invention as a guiding principle, we’ve been able to help our clients pivot and find new opportunities for their businesses,” said Vasquez. “Creative resilience was the theme for us in 2020 and we’re ready to dig in and help the industry push ahead as brands and nations recover.”
