Sharpening brands and growing together: Crawford celebrates 14th anniversary

May 8, 2024

Crawford, a full-service creative marketing and branding agency based in Greenville, recently celebrated its 14th year in business. Since 2010, Crawford has provided marketing and public relations strategy and implementation for clients in the financial services, healthcare, higher education and travel & hospitality industries, among others.

“While longevity in business is absolutely critical, I believe our ability to drive results is key to our success thus far,” said Andy Windham, president and chief strategy officer. “In the last year and a half alone, we have been a national finalist in the U.S. Travel Association’s ESTO awards and won eight MarCom Awards and seven American Advertising Awards, all underscoring our focus on creativity, innovation and results.”

From the beginning, Crawford has been focused on building long term relationships with business leaders to help them achieve their visionary goals. In an industry that often sees clients and talent come and go, Crawford has been fortunate to have worked with several client leaders for seven-plus years and a handful for more than a decade.

As the agency marches toward a milestone anniversary next year, it celebrates meaningful long-term strategic partnerships with clients such as United Community, Michelin, Prisma Health, the University of West Georgia and The Queen’s Health System in Hawaii. At the same time, Crawford’s work continues to attract exciting partnerships with ten new clients since 2023 that include diverse organizations like the City of Columbia and North Greenville University.

“We are people working with people,” said Bryant Lambert, SVP of client relations. “Our clients are humans with goals and emotions, just like us. With that focus front and center, we develop deeper relationships and deliver better results.”

With recognition six years in a row as one of South Carolina’s Best Places to Work, it is clear the agency has focused on assembling a team of strategic thinkers and doers who are passionate about their craft and each other.

“Believe in, invest in and encourage your people and watch the magic happen. The right team, empowered and supported, delivers great work,” added Marion Crawford, founder and CEO.

The people-first culture permeates everything Crawford does. It is the foundation of its success and the reason they are raising a glass to not just 14 years, but many more.
