About Grey:
Grey has spent almost 100 years mastering the art of fame and perfecting the science of fortune. It's part of our culture, and it permeates every aspect of our work. From the Febreze social experiment, to CoverGirl Ellen DeGeneres to the Russian oligarch’s petite lap giraffe for DirecTV, among others, we’ve helped create pop culture sensations, and more than 90% of our clients reported positive sales growth — famous and effective. Since moving to award winning, LEED Gold-certified new offices in New York’s Flatiron District, Grey has grown dramatically, increasing our client list by 50% and more than doubling the number of employees, from 400 to more than 1,000. Our reputation for smart, nimble thinking behind our famously effective work continues to grow as well: Grey is the only agency to be named one of Fast Company’s “50 Most Innovative Companies in the World” two years in a row. Grey was recently named Adweek's 2013 Global Agency of the Year and Advertising Age's 2014 Agency of the Year. By every measure — growth from existing clients, new business success, a soaring creative reputation — Grey’s performance has never been better. At the heart of that success is the continued infusion of the industry’s top talent. We’re looking to continue both trends — best year, top talent — this year and beyond.
