Rauxa Solidifies Its Position as the Largest Woman-Owned Independent Advertising Agency in the U.S.

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwired - July 25, 2016) - Rauxa today announced its ranking as the largest woman-owned independent advertising agency in the United States, supported by data from Advertising Age's 2016 Agency Report.

Founded in 1999 by Jill Gwaltney, Rauxa today boasts 230 employees and six offices serving a growing client roster, which includes Gap Inc., Verizon, Allergan, Blue Shield of California and Alaska Airlines. To date, the agency has been most noted for its data-driven approach, weaving in creativity and technology, with the goal of achieving continued improvement in clients' success.

"I grew up working with my father in the family printing business. He taught me everything about starting and growing a business -- his primary lesson being 'Figure out what customers need, and help them get it done.' And that is exactly the mantra we have embraced from the beginning and still live by today," shared Gwaltney.

Rauxa is led by CEO Gina Alshuler, who took the reins from Gwaltney in 2015 after having worked her way up through the ranks from account coordinator in 2001.

"We are excited to announce Rauxa as the largest woman-owned independent advertising agency," commented Alshuler. "Being independent means that we report to no one but our clients, allowing us to devise and deliver the very best solutions for them. Being woman-owned and woman-led instills the team with a powerful combination of empathy and grit that has built enduring relationships with clients, partners and colleagues."
