A couple of days ago I mentioned how much I love the diversity of companies that I find on the Inc. 5000 list. The best part of that is the geographic heterogeneity. It’s extremely difficult to learn about interesting companies that aren’t in major population centers. It’s partly because there aren’t nearly as many of them, but it’s also because successful companies in smaller cities don’t usually get a ton of media attention outside of their own market. Luckily there are some exceptions like the Inc. 5000, which is where I found out about EdgeCore. They’re a Cedar Falls, IA based “advertising agency that specializes in the strategic development of creative concepts and integrated branding and promotional campaigns for clients nationwide.” They may be located in a small city, but they’re still the 614th fastest growing private company in the U.S. with 527% three-year growth to $5.5 million in revenue.
While EdgeCore has a number of interesting clients, the one that you’re likely most familiar with is Verizon Wireless. EdgeCore worked out a deal “to serve the marketing needs of Verizon’s Indirect Channel across the nation.” They’re the only agency to score that kind of deal, which is pretty cool. There isn’t all that much information on the EdgeCore site, so if you really want to dig into who they are and what they’re about, you’ll have to take a look at their blog. If that gets you excited about EdgeCore, then you can take a look at the company’s Careers page. They seem to have an open call for talent (typical ad agency positions), and they’re specifically looking for an Account Executive right now.
