Client-Agency Relationship

Tenure for CMOs and their agencies are at all-time lows.

It’s clear that companies today demand more from their marketing and communications investments: Stronger relationships with customers; Faster results; and clear ROI.

To succeed in this environment, you need an agency that can quickly understand your complex business. A partner that helps you keep all the decision-makers happy; someone that can deliver results that matter – and do it quickly.

For more than 25 years, our clients have relied on Standing Partnership as their trusted advisor in a world of constant change. That’s why our client tenure is more than double the industry average.
