Media Planner


C-K is one of the largest independent, totally integrated agencies in the country with over $700 million in billings, nearly $400 million in media assets under management and 61% of revenue from digital.

With a mission to Make Friends, Not Ads®, C-K has built a reputation for changing perception and behaviors that lead to purchasing action for brands. It’s how we helped Porsche achieve 10 years of consecutive record-breaking growth, how Corona became the #1 import and Pacifico grew 19% in a single year.

We’ve done it by interconnecting an ever-expanding range of disciplines from strategic branding to digital, social, analytics, media/programmatic, SEM, PR, UX and more.

Major brands include Alzheimer’s Association, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company (Knott’s Berry Farm, Cedar Point and additional properties), Cintas, Corona Extra, Marzetti Salad Dressing (plus 15 brands), Pacifico Beer, Porsche and Tropicana.

C-K is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive agency that’s built around respect, collaboration, creativity, and inspiration. We believe an inclusive environment allows us all to create the most compelling work in this industry.

About C-K Milwaukee:

Milwaukee is the birthplace of C-K. Back in 1898, two bicycling enthusiasts—Cody Cramer and Bill Krasselt—started a newsletter about their passion. As that passion became a nationwide craze, advertisers wanted to promote their goods in the newsletter, but most of them didn’t have agencies to help create the ads. Cody and Bill seized the entrepreneurial opportunity and C-K was born.

Today, that spirit is alive and kicking among our team of seasoned marketers, communications and public relations professionals and top creative talent who serve clients from a variety of industries. Whether we are creating award-winning experiences for the Milwaukee Public Library or launching major national campaigns for Cintas, Cat’s Pride, Saputo (cheese brands such as Stella, Montchevre, Black Creek, Salemville and Great Midwest) and many others, we leverage best-in-class strategies in digital and social media, marketing, advertising and public relations to engage the right audience for each client.

And, this team loves Milwaukee so much that they are dedicated to giving back to the community. Each year they put countless time, funds and labor into charities and non-profits such as St. John’s Open Door Café, Milwaukee Public Museum, Sojourner Family Peace Center, Movember and several others.
