Shop's Revenue Grew 15%, Partly Because of the Midyear Win of Sprint

When Clorox Co. started a review of all its creative agencies last month, Senior VP-Chief Marketing Officer Eric Reynolds was quick to call Alma from his car and tell the U.S. Hispanic agency, its only creative shop in the world to get such a call, that the business Alma held was not up for review.
 
"For all their work, the results have been spectacular, both in [growing] share and the efficiency and effectiveness of their creative work," Mr. Reynolds said. "Our statisticians say, 'Whatever Alma is doing, it's working.'"

In fact, Mr. Reynolds said the agency is so good at developing universal truths that speak to all consumers that Alma's Hispanic work is increasingly crossing over into the general market.
