Fingerpaint Named One of the Top 100 Fastest-Growing Agencies by Adweek

Another testament to the agency’s explosive growth and success while still remaining an independent agency

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Fingerpaint, a full-service health and wellness marketing agency with five offices across the country and over $80 million in revenue, was named one of the 100 Fastest-Growing Agencies for 2020 by Adweek.

Adweek is a leading marketing and advertising industry publication that published its first issue in 1979. The publication began their ranking of fresh-thinking agencies from around the world in 2019, with the goal of showing how agencies, both big and small, rose to industry challenges and not only overcame them, but also achieved wild success.

“We are honored to be recognized by Adweek as one of the 100 Fastest-Growing Agencies,” said Ed Mitzen, founder of Fingerpaint. “The growth we have seen in the past three years has been incredibly humbling and exciting for the entire team at Fingerpaint. When we opened our doors in 2008, we believed that we could create a successful agency while remaining true to our people-first ethos, and I am proud that we still hold that close to this day.”

The agency was recognized for its remarkable 61.37% growth over the past three years, and 2020 has been no different. In February, Fingerpaint announced the acquisition of 1798, a market access firm; followed by the creation of Photo 51, a consultancy focused solely on gene and cell therapies; and, most recently, the establishment of the Shift Performance™ Center of Excellence and its proprietary Actionable Intelligence Engine™. In addition to these exciting new ventures, the agency has seen a 23% increase in headcount since the start of 2020.
