But in honor of this recognition, we wanted to give you a few more reasons we’re proud to be a finalist.
1. Recognition of Our Employees
Perhaps the most exciting part of Built In Chicago’s Moxie Awards is the award's acknowledgement of our awesome team’s hard work. Every week, Risers strive to deliver on our mission of creating remarkable experiences and driving superior results for our clients. The Moxie Awards provides an opportunity for us to celebrate the incredibly talented Risers that make Rise a stand-out agency.
2. Connections with Chicago’s Leading Companies As a Chicago born and bred company, being recognized with organizations that at the forefront of technology like SpringCM and Outcome Health, is very significant to us. It truly speaks to the growth Rise has seen over the years. We’re proud of how far our agency has come from our humble beginnings in the living room of our CEO, Jon Morris, to our current office with a team of nearly 230 analytically-driven employees. We are honored to be in great company with this year’s finalists!
3. Acknowledgement of Overall Achievement
Our agency was fortunate to accomplish a number of milestones since the last Moxie Awards ceremony. Being honored as a Moxie Awards Digital Agency of the Year finalist brings light to those achievements. We grew our headcount by 11 percent in 2016 and increased our revenue by 35 percent. Additionally, our agency announced the formation of our strategic advisory board, partnered with creative company, unbundled, and teamed up with Quad Graphics through a strategic partnership to connect online and offline experiences.
