GREEN BAY, WI, December 18, 2018 — Elevate97, a brand solutions company delivering print, fulfillment, technology and design, today announced it has acquired KHROME, a full-service advertising agency in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The strategic purchase will give Elevate97’s worldrenowned brands and KHROME’s portfolio of clients a single source for integrative marketing services—from concept to consumer—in support of their campaigns and programs.
“The purchase of KHROME adds a new and needed dimension of fully integrated services that makes sense for our customers who often want end-to-end marketing solutions,” said Kate Burgess, CEO of Elevate97. “KHROME’s exceptional capabilities in brand strategy, design, video and media will not only meet our customers’ high expectations, but KHROME’s talent and culture ideally complement those of Elevate97. It’s a strategic business move that gives the brands we serve, next-level solutions.”
KHROME was sold by Pete Angilello, who owned the agency following the death of his husband and company founder, Jim Rivett in August 2018.
“The KHROME team has a well-founded reputation for outside-the-box thinking while Elevate97 is well-known for innovation and big ideas,” said Angilello. “That makes for a perfect fit and creates a powerhouse of talent that promises to benefit clients and propel brands.”
KHROME will continue to operate as an advertising agency and will serve its portfolio of clients from its current North Broadway offices while integrating with Elevate97 operations.
“The acquisition of KHROME by Elevate97 allows us to provide clients with a bigger toolbox of dynamic marketing resources, all from a single source,” said Meghan Murphy, KHROME vice president of media and account services. “It’s an exciting development that will strengthen our clients’ marketing success.”
“At Elevate97, we are committed to being the preferred partner for showcasing world-renowned retail brands,” said Burgess. “It’s a commitment that has been wholly reinforced with the acquisition of KHROME and its full range of services.”
