A Grand Junction-based marketing and communications agency ranks among the top companies in Colorado in the latest results of an annual awards program billed as one of the most competitive in the state.

“We are very excited to be recognized as one of the top three marketing agencies in Colorado,” said Matthew Breman, owner of Cranium 360.

“We really focus on the quality of services we offer and the value we bring to our clients. Competing with agencies in larger markets while living on the Western Slope is sometimes challenging, but we thoroughly enjoy all the Grand Valley has to offer,” he said.

Cranium 360 was selected as one of three finalists in the industry category for media, advertising and public relations in the Colorado Biz magazine Top Company Awards competition for 2014.

The other two finalists in the category are Madwire Media based in Loveland and Webolutions in Denver.

Cranium 360 offers a wide range of services to local and national clients that includes marketing planning and execution, public relations, research, social media and web development.

Breman brings to the venture more than 15 years of experience in the entertainment industry and has worked with MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon and Walt Disney World Resort. He has been involved with more than 1,500 episodes of broadcast television, internal and external marketing campaigns as well as product and retail store development. While working with Disney, Breman established its internal communications design agency.

Since its inception in 1988, the Top Company Awards competition has recognized Colorado businesses that display innovation, dedication to excellence and sustained success. The competition judges small and large businesses alike by the same criteria: the ability to differentiate themselves in a saturated market and deliver lasting results to clients and consumers.

Each year three finalists are selected in each of 13 industry categories. The winners will be announced at a ceremony scheduled for Aug. 28 in the Seawell Grand Ballroom at the Denver Center for Performing Arts.

Cranium 360 is the second Grand Junction-based business to be honored in the Top Company Awards program. In 2011, J.G. Management Systems won in the services category.
