|The Richards Group became a full-service advertising agency just 38 years ago. We are now the largest independent agency in America (with billings just north of $1.3 billion). We are not for sale. Not now. Not ever.
With no investors, shareholders, or partners to answer to, we’re never diverted from our focus on our work, our clients, and our people (and at last count, we had 665 of those).
We exist to endear brands to people. We believe that a brand is a promise and that this promise should be expressed consistently at every point of contact to maximize a brand’s clarity, relevance, and power.
It should come as no surprise, then, that we have built the holistic capabilities necessary to build brands through all forms of communication at any point of contact.
