LOS ANGELES CA, August 18, 2016 – – Kelton Global, an innovative insights and strategy consultancy, has relocated its headquarters from Culver City to Playa Vista, a hub for LA’s tech and creative communities. The new headquarters will accommodate Kelton’s expansion, diversification of services, and growing roster of Fortune 500 clients. Founded in 2003, Kelton was recently named to the Gold Top 50 by the American Marketing Association and was again named to the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies. The company also has growing offices in New York City and Chicago.
The move reflects the company’s 73% revenue growth over the past five years, reaching revenues of over $25 MM annually and consistently outperforming industry growth rates. The company has quickly evolved into a global brand, with approximately 26% of revenue derived from international engagements.
“Our talent is our lifeblood, and our enthusiasm is our trademark. We want our space to reflect that spirit, and to provide inspiration and collaboration to our work,” said Tom Bernthal, Kelton Co-Founder and CEO. “We were in Culver City before it was hot, and now we’re at the front end of the movement to Playa.”
Conceptualized in part by Kelton’s Design Group, the new headquarters includes in-house space for consumer inspiration sessions, and ample space to continue growing our Cultural Insights and Brand Strategy Groups. An open floor plan allows for maximum ideation amongst diversely skilled teams. Kelton’s neighbors include YouTube, The Honest Company, 72andSunny, Phelps Agency, and Rubicon.
“We build solutions by melding perspectives of researchers, strategists, marketers and designers,” said Gareth Schweitzer, Kelton Co-Founder and President. “Our new home in Playa Vista encourages collaboration across disciplines, and fosters critical innovations to ensure that Kelton will continue to lead the industry.”
