Co-CEO Pasquale "Pocky" Marranzino Celebrates 40 Years at Karsh Hagan
Last night, a handful of Karsh Hagan team members convened at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, unsure of what awaited us as we pushed through the doors of the Seawell Ballroom. We sat down at our table, abuzz with anticipation, and waited patiently and pensively for the ceremony to begin.
In July, Karsh Hagan received the flattering news we had made list of finalists for ColoradoBiz Magazine’s Awards top contenders in the Marketing and Advertising category. For the last three decades, ColoradoBiz Magazine has been holding local businesses to the highest standards, rewarding Colorado’s crème de la crème with a shiny new ColoradoBiz accolade. From the Western Slope to the Eastern Plains, companies of all sizes and capabilities submit themselves as a top contender in their industry, and few get to take home the bragging rights.
Consider this our humble acceptance, and our outpouring of gratitude to everybody who made this win possible. The credit for this is two-fold: Thank you to all of our employees who create amazing work every day, and to our clients for helping us to thrive.
With the sun setting on our fourth decade in business, this year has marked one of its most successful years in history in terms of new business wins, client campaign performance, and agency innovation. We owe this, in great part, to our national quality creative products as well as our unparalleled media planning and buying capabilities.
Our new business wins this year spanned local and national brands in travel/tourism, higher education, healthcare, cause marketing and beyond, reflecting our ability to apply winning strategies across different categories. Despite the breadth of industries our new partnerships cover, there has remained one constant in our onboarding and implementation strategy: We are dedicated to helping each client Elevate What’s Possible.
We won’t lie— Earning this accolade has been nothing short of rewarding. But the true victory? Over our last four decades in business, we have been blessed with long-standing client relationships, unmatched by many agencies. We are most proud of our ability to define and create tangible results in all our partnerships, whether that relationship is established or new.
This award is not an honor we take for granted - the KH team has been working tirelessly in our pursuit to raise the bar and redefine what is possible in the marketing and advertising industry.
We have always been— and always will be— pioneers of brave ideas.
