The Kansas City Business Journal Ranks PlattForm Advertising the Second Largest Ad Agency in Kansas City

Lenexa, KS, April 16, 2010 --( Continuing its steady climb through the ranks of Midwest-based advertising agencies, PlattForm Advertising has been ranked the second largest advertising agency in Kansas City according to the Kansas City Business Journal. In the publication’s March 26 edition, the company was ranked second for its gross income figures and total employee numbers, its highest rankings since its founding in 1989.

Last year, the Business Journal ranked PlattForm as the city’s fourth largest advertising agency in gross income for the fourth year in a row while it leapfrogged a spot to No. 3 in employee count. At the time, those were also record achievements for the agency.

“Once again, our employees have done a terrific job in embracing new challenges and new clients while maintaining the high level of service and creativity for which our company has come to be known,” CEO Dave Admire said. “In the next year, we’re going to continue setting our sights on taking care of our clients and more strategic growth.”

PlattForm’s client base is predominantly in post-secondary education. In the Kansas City area, only VML posted larger gross income and employee numbers.
