Media Planner

About C-K:
Cramer-Krasselt is one of the largest independent agencies with over $500 million in billing and 74% of our revenue from digital and social. More than integrated, we are totally interconnected to optimize and synergize every marketing communication effort for maximum impact.

With a mission to Make Friends, Not Ads®, C-K has built a reputation for changing perceptions and behaviors that significantly move the purchase needle. It’s how we helped Porsche achieve 11 years of consecutive record-breaking sales, how Corona continues to be one of the top imports, how Pacifico grew 19% to become the ninth largest selling beer in just two years and how Tropicana broke all PepsiCo brand testing records, just to name a few.

We have done it by a very different organizational structure, interconnecting an ever-expanding range of disciplines from strategic branding to digital, social, analytics, media/programmatic, e-commerce, SEM, PR, UX, influencer and more.

Major brands include Alzheimer’s Association, Cedar Fair (Knott’s Berry Farm, Cedar Point and 13 additional properties), Cintas, Corona, Pacifico, Porsche, Spirit Airlines, Cat’s Pride, Naked and Tropicana.
