San Francisco-based Eleven has announced the official opening of its Chicago office, joining a growing number of agencies in Chicago’s West Loop.
The agency said that its expansion comes in response to an increased demand for Silicon Valley style thinking from brands across the country who are looking to disrupt both established and nascent categories alike.
The Chicago extension will be led by Eleven’s CEO Courtney Buechert and is projected to grow to 20 people by the end of 2019. Eleven’s office in Chicago will place it closer to clients like CommonSpirit, Pella, Electrify America and newly awarded CarGurus. The Narrative Group, a PR and Influencer sister agency will share the campus space.
“I’m really excited about this step in our growth,” said Courtney Buechert, CEO of Eleven. “Opening a Chicago office not only places us closer to several long-standing clients, but it also enables us to attract forward thinking talent and business in a great city that feels like home to us already. Our 20th year has become one of our most exciting, and I am really looking forward to continuing our expansion over the months to come.”
Eleven said it is planning to expand its presence into New York in early 2020 as well, joining its sister agencies in a shared campus.
