Rauxa has grown consistently since its inception nearly two decades ago, working with a steadily growing roster of clients that includes Gap Inc., Verizon and Alaska Airlines. The addition of Daggett comes on the heels of Rauxa's announcement of its position as the largest woman-owned advertising agency in the U.S., founded by direct marketing maven Jill Gwaltney and led by long-time Rauxan CEO Gina Alshuler.

"As a female creative, it's hard not to love the fact that Rauxa is predominantly female-led. But beyond that, I saw an independent spirit and a deeply-routed tenacity in Rauxa that was exciting. They've nurtured a thriving culture and cultivated a prestigious client roster that I'm eager to sink my teeth into. We're going to make to make exceptional, award-winning work that will undoubtedly drive our clients' business amidst a rapidly evolving world -- and we're going to have a lot of fun while doing it," shared Daggett.
