Communications marks its 25th year as a leading marketing communications
28, 2015) LAGRANT COMMUNICATIONS, a multicultural integrated marketing
communications firm, celebrated 25 years in business on September 1,
2015. Since its opening in 1990, LC's expertise and services have
supported clients in developing culturally relevant and sensitive
advertising, marketing and public relations campaigns that target the
African American, Hispanic and LGBT Consumer Markets.
LAGRANT COMMUNICATIONS was founded by President and CEO Mr. Kim L.
Hunter (pictured). With more than three decades of experience in
communications, Hunter realized there was a need to develop strategies
and campaigns targeting multicultural markets. Hunter is also the
Chairman and CEO of The LAGRANT Foundation (TLF), a nonprofit that
provides scholarships, internships/entry-level jobs, career and
professional development workshops, and mentors to African
American/Black, Alaska Native/Native American, Asian American/ Pacific
Islander and Hispanic/Latino undergraduate and graduate students; and
Managing Partner of KLH & Associates, a multicultural executive search
"There are many factors that can attest to the firm's sustainability,
however the overarching theme is the unwavering commitment to meet and
exceed our clients' expectations," said Hunter. "For the past 25 years,
staying client focused has been the underlying thread that positively
affects our clients and agency."
The firm has had the pleasure of representing a variety of clients
including Fortune 500 companies, government agencies and non-profit.
Establishing itself as a pioneer in multicultural marketing, LC has
received numerous awards from organizations including PRWeek, SABRE
Awards, Hermes Creative Awards, the MAAX Awards, among others.
Since inception, LC has expanded from it's foundation of developing
award winning campaigns to raise awareness on social marketing and
healthcare issues, such as HIV/AIDS, infant mortality, tobacco control
and teen pregnancy, to include an overall six industries of focus:
healthcare, social marketing, utilities, financial services, automotive
and travel and tourism industries.
The Hispanic Practice also now targets the Brazilian Consumer Market and
provides in-language Portuguese services. This led to the launch of
Afro-Brazilian.com, a website owned by the firm devoted to educating
African Americans on the diversity of the Afro-Brazilian culture.
The firm also recently introduced POLISH (Political, Opportunity,
Leverage, Integrity, Strategy and Honest), the firm's public affairs
division that promotes and supports women seeking elected office at the
local, regional and national levels, with a strong emphasis on women of
color. Through POLISH, the firm has coordinated Senator Holly J.
Mitchell's community swearing in ceremony and fifth annual Christmas in
July program along with providing support for California State
Controller Betty Yee, 26th State Senatorial candidate Betsy Butler and
Carolyn Ramsay, candidate for Los Angeles City Council for District 4.
"LAGRANT COMMUNICATIONS has been a key part of my communications efforts
over the past 15 years," said Roger Frizzell, senior vice president and
chief communications officer for Carnival Corporation. "We are fortunate
to have such great partners for our business."
