Industry Leaders Launch Crux: Strategic Marketing Agency for Live, Social and Digital
Crux LLC, the only marketing agency that provides actionable strategic guidance for live, social and digital experiences, today announced its official launch. Leading the agency are renowned industry strategists Dax Callner and Christine Kiesling.
Callner and Kiesling started Crux in response to an increasing need from companies and agencies for fresh-thinking and nimble support from smaller, boutique agencies.
“What we really care about is adding value and all we do is strategy,” says Dax Callner, co-founder, Crux. “We want to help clients measurably grow their business and add value to the people they want to reach.”
“Our focus is to make Crux a real partner to clients,” commented Christine Kiesling, co-founder, Crux. “We take ownership of client objectives as if they were our own.”
"Working with Crux has been such an amazing experience for us. They’ve approached our engagements with strategic thinking, creativity and enthusiasm,” said Annie Valle, director, digital marketing Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. “The strategies they’ve delivered reach beyond the expected, incorporating consumer insights, new tech and evolving trends to activate our consumers in innovative ways. I’m impressed with their ability to work across our agency and technology partners to design and communicate actionable strategies for the business."
"Crux and its expert team of strategists is one of the most creative and strategic thinking agencies I've worked with in the event marketing industry,” stated Joe Federbush, vice president, sales and marketing, Exhibit Surveys Inc. “Working with Crux on projects large and small, has shown me a breadth of knowledge and expertise in strategy development, design, execution, and delivering results. I highly recommend Crux to anyone needing insights and out-of-the-box thinking for their marketing programs."
For over 15 years, Christine Kiesling worked within large, global experiential marketing agencies (at George P. Johnson and Jack Morton Worldwide), helping to transform a wide array of programs for clients including IBM, CA, Nokia, Pitney Bowes, Gartner, Research in Motion, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Workday.
