Overview

Company:

 

One agency. 35 years. 100 direct and digital marketing professionals (give or take a few).

The bulk of our billings come from our digital efforts, but we’re also savants when it comes to making our clients’ advertising dollars work in traditional channels.

Spend even a few minutes in our Buckhead office, and you’ll see for yourself: We love what we do. At BKV, we’re aggressive, but we’re not ad-holes. Driven, but not to distraction. We believe in the power of teamwork, and put it to work on everything from our bowling league to our award-winning omni-channel campaigns. Here at BKV, everyone from the president to the summer intern fulfills an active, hands-on role to meet our clients’ goals. BKV has maintained a leadership position in both on and offline channels and is currently one of the 25 Largest U.S. Search Marketing Agencies (Advertising Age, 2014) and Top Work Places(AJC, 2016). We also have flexible WFH days and did we mention that pets are welcome?
