B2B agency named to Chief Marketer 200 for 5th year
Walnut Creek, Calif. – December 2, 2021. Spear Marketing Group, a leading, full-service B2B demand generation agency, has been named to the 2022 Chief Marketer 200, a comprehensive list of the best engagement and brand activation agencies in the US. It is the eighth year in a row that the firm has been recognized by Chief Marketer as one of the top B2B agencies in the country, and the fifth year in a row that Spear has made the CM200 list.
Compiled by Chief Marketer’s editors, the Chief Marketer 200 features agencies across 11 different categories. “This year’s CM200 represents an agency community made stronger and more resourceful than ever before,” said Jessica Heasley, Group Editor & Publisher at Chief Marketer. “We hope that brand marketers will consider the partners on this list for their 2022 programs. They have all demonstrated incredible creativity and resilience and are poised to transform challenges into opportunities in the year ahead.”
Winners were selected based on several criteria including: insightful client testimonials; outstanding case study submissions; high caliber, consistent work across programs and clients; innovative and creative executions; and bold and inspiring concepts and ideas that are moving the industry forward. The complete list of winners can be found on ChiefMarketer.com.
Spear was recognized for a year in which it not only successfully navigated the COVID economy, but also added more than 30 new clients, made key hires in client services, creative, paid media, and marketing operations, and (measured by number of staff) is the largest it’s been since its founding in 2009.
“2021 has been a year of adaptation as we helped our clients compete in a rapidly changing marketplace,” commented Howard J. Sewell, Spear’s President. “It’s a credit to the management team and the entire staff that we were able to not only continue to drive revenue for our clients in a tough environment, but also improve our own operations, make key hires, expand into new service areas, and grow the company. I’m incredibly proud to be named to this prestigious list again.”

Launched in 2009, the firm has evolved over 10+ years to be one of the most recognized agencies in the B2B space.
