Adweek named Arm Candy to their fastest-growing agency list in 2022. Adweek annually ranks agencies based on the previous three year’s revenue growth. Arm Candy’s growth has been driven by their commitment to a new model for what a paid media agency should be for agencies, brands and ad-tech clients.
Founded in 2019 as an agency media services provider, Arm Candy primarily supported creative agency partners in bringing an integrated marketing solution to their clients. The company has since evolved to take on clients such as Fairway Mortgage, Hawaiian Bros Island Grill, Caliber Collision and FC Dallas, but the original goal has remained the same: to be a client’s most valuable partner.
“Our focus from day one has been centered around bringing to market the highest quality media services offering, which requires the brightest minds, the best technology and an agency model built for what clients need today”, explains founder and CEO, John Lods. “I believe we have all three and could not be more excited to continue to raise the bar for what a paid media agency can deliver.”
The key to Arm Candy’s continued growth lies in their on-going investment in creating a better workplace for its employees. Arm Candy’s belief is that a narrow focus on being an “MVP” and building a better agency experience for its people fosters solutions that engineer better outcomes for its clients.
“A lot of agencies talk about people, but we’re actually delivering. Mandatory and unlimited PTO, 100% covered benefits, hybrid work environment and the best technology allow people to do the best work of their careers in the best environment for them. And our independence ensures this commitment to our people is never compromised,” says Marian Leonard, Managing Director for Arm Candy. “So congratulations to our entire team on this fun moment, but we are really excited as we look ahead to an even brighter future.”
