“Ark Advisors has a deep knowledge of the agency marketplace, and provided great counsel. They were particularly strong in helping develop our brand briefing materials, frame our specific request to the agencies, and evaluate proposals. At a tactical level, they were good about timing and keeping us disciplined with scheduling and communication throughout the process. We were very pleased with the outcome of the search, and if need arose again I would certainly look to Ark Advisors to lead it.”

— Steve Shannon, Executive Director, Marketing and Product Planning Cadillac Division, General Motors

“I have worked with Ark Advisors several times and find their services to be extremely valuable. They have extensive knowledge of the ad agency landscape; their process is both very effective and efficient, easing you (and the agencies) through the timeline, and providing meaningful counsel, insights and “thought starters” without undermining your authority. One of the many benefits of their Search process is that it yields useable work that can be fast-tracked into market. Lastly, they make the project a pleasant experience with a high-energy approach combined with the ability to have a few laughs!”

“Ark Advisors has been an invaluable asset to me during two searches for a new Agency partner. They guide you through the entire process, starting with their insight on the rapidly changing agency field — to helping you define what you’re really looking for, to managing logistics and finally to refereeing the multiple opinions and personalities as you make a final decision. They truly help set up the new relationship for success!”

— Jennifer Telek, VP, Global Communications and Marketing, NYSE Euronext
