Hudson-based integrated marketing firm doubles in size over five years

CLEVELAND—Hudson-based AKHIA has been named to the Weatherhead 100 list of the fastest growing companies in Northeast Ohio for more than doubling its growth over the past five years, now employing more than 60 people.

Founded in 1996 by Jan Gusich, AKHIA is an integrated marketing communications firm that distinguishes itself through its service model and by focusing on strategic solutions that drive business growth for its clients.

“When the company was founded I had one goal in mind: to serve clients beyond their expectations,” said Jan Gusich, CEO of AKHIA. “Through the years we have not lost sight of what makes AKHIA special—our service model, our culture and our relentless dedication to bringing new thinking to our clients. Whether its business integration, digital marketing, content and social media strategy, crisis communications, or marketing communication, our employees have worked hard to take the agency—and our clients—to unprecedented new levels.”

Compiled by the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Weatherhead 100 winners are named for achieving at least $100k to at least $1M in net sales growth within the past five years. This is the first year AKHIA has applied for the award.

“Being named a Weatherhead 100 award winner represents the dedication and contributions from everyone at AKHIA to the business and our growth,” Gusich said. “It’s an exciting moment in our history.”

AKHIA will attend the 2014 Weatherhead 100 Award Ceremony on December 4. A full list of the 2014 Weatherhead 100 award winners can be found here.
