Chief Marketer Names Merit a Top Marketing Agency for 2022

For the sixth consecutive year, Merit has been awarded a spot on
Chief Marketer’s list of Top 200 Marketing Agencies of 2022. Though this win is a little extra sweet as the accolades highlight Merit in the Design and Innovation category; an acknowledgement of our exciting growth and evolution as an organization. Previously, Merit was featured in the B2B Brand Engagement category. The list represents an elite group of brand and activation agencies throughout the United States. 

“Merit is very different from many marketing and advertising agencies, so to be acknowledged and featured by a trusted industry publication such as Chief Marketer is a validation of our thinking and the unique approaches we take in working with our clients,” said Adam Vasquez, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Merit. “Our work, through the principle of Market Invention, is based in economics, and lives at the intersection of strategy and inventive creative. We focus on real, transformational change for our clients, so they stop competing in old, crowded spaces and create markets where they lead.”

Winners of the award were selected 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 concepts and ideas that are moving the industry forward.

“This year’s winners are a group of thought leaders in their respective crafts and truly represent the best of the marketing industry,” says Jessica Heasley, Group Editor and Publisher at Chief Marketer. “We hope that brand marketers will consider the partners on this list for their 2022 programs. They have all demonstrated incredible creativity and resilience and are poised to transform challenges into opportunities in the year ahead.”
