CHICAGO, Ill., December 6, 2019 / — August Jackson has been named to the 2020 Chief Marketer 200 in the category of Top B2B Experiential Agencies for its third consecutive year. The CM200 is the industry’s only comprehensive list of the 200 best engagement and experience agencies across 11 marketing categories and specialties and shines the spotlight on the fastest-growing channels of marketing.

“Female-led AJ is an industry go-to when it comes to inspiring action,” wrote Chief Marketer in their CM200 editorial announcement. “In the past three years, [August Jackson] has seen a 40 percent growth in revenue, grown its team and expanded its capabilities, [including] a new employee engagement practice [that] will help meet the demands of all this growth.”
