Elevation is pleased to announce the acquisition of Fultz Marketing.
Founded in 1994 by industry veteran Barbara Fultz, Fultz Marketing has a longstanding reputation for excellence in producing a wide range of marketing and advertising materials. “We’ve been working with Barbara and her team since we launched Elevation in 2001,” said Frank Gilliam, Elevation’s co-founder and co-creative director. “Our strengths have always matched perfectly with theirs, so this is really a perfect marriage.”
Fultz has been named Senior Vice President of Elevation, where she will continue to provide leadership to accounts including Alcoa Architectural Products, Camp BowWow, Capital One, LeClairRyan and Marriott International, among others. All of Fultz Marketing’s staff will also join the Elevation team at its headquarters at 9 West Main Street in Richmond, effective January 1, 2012.
“Elevation’s clients will benefit from the added depth of production experience that Barbara’s team brings to us,” said Aaron Dotson, Elevation’s co-founder and co-creative director. “And Fultz’s clients will benefit from Elevation’s extensive strategic and creative capabilities. We’re very enthusiastic about the growth opportunities this creates, not only for our combined client roster, but for our staff, too.”
“Joining Elevation is going to be great for my clients and my staff,” Fultz said. “Frank, Aaron and I have created dozens of successful campaigns together over the last ten years, and the chance to officially join forces is very exciting for all of us. We look forward to creating even more great work together in the years ahead.”
Elevation was named the Small Business Greater Richmond Employer of Choice in 2011. Barbara Fultz was named Ad Person of the Year by the Advertising Club of Richmond in 1998. Aaron Dotson and Frank Gilliam were named Ad Persons of the Year by the Advertising Club of Richmond in 2009.
