Underground Elephant Ranked #1 Ad Agency by the San Diego Business Journal 

According to a report from the San Diego Business Journal (SDBJ) on Sept 22, 2014, Underground Elephant is San Diego’s Largest Ad Agency, based on 2013 total revenue. In addition to being San Diego’s largest ad agency, Underground Elephant’s 2013 revenue also distinguishes it as the county’s 34th largest private company.

Locally, Underground Elephant consistently ranks on San Diego Business Journal’s Top-100 Fastest Growing Private Companies—winning the #1 spot on the list in 2011, with over 3,000% revenue growth from 2008-2011. Also, thanks to our commitment to support the local community and progressive company culture, Underground Elephant has been repeatedly acknowledged as one of the coolest, best companies to work for in San Diego by both SDBJ and O.C. Tanner.

Nationally, Inc. Magazine has acknowledged Underground Elephant with back-to-back rankings on the Inc. 5000—i.e. the 5000 fastest-growing, private companies in the United States, compiled using three-year revenue growth. Underground Elephant has consecutive rankings on the list: #695 in 2013 and #1162 in 2014. Thanks to our employee-driven corporate social responsibility, Underground Elephant also received a gold Stevie from the American Business Awards, as well as a Best and Brightest award from the National Association of Business Resources.

Although Underground Elephant is proud of this momentum, San Diego as a whole should also be proud of the continued achievements of our local business community. Of the 5000 businesses that made the nationwide Inc. 5000 2014 list, San Diego accounted for 81 of those companies—earning our City the fifth highest municipal ranking in the nation.

“We have been chasing Digitaria for a few years now, finishing 2nd and 3rd—so it feels good to win this time around.” remarked Underground Elephant CEO, Jason Kulpa, adding, “Downtown San Diego has become a hotbed for new tech advertising companies, and our focus on performance gives us a definite advantage over traditional agencies.”
