IMGE started with five employees around a conference table in D.C. We set out to build a full-service digital agency that did everything in-house. By prioritizing culture, investing in technology, and putting our clients first, we created a strong foundation for growth and opportunity from day one.
Investment in our internal infrastructure started early. In 2014, we built out our advertising stack and IMGE Labs, the product-focused arm of IMGE. Since then, we've spent over $1M on a world-class ad stack, built CHRGE, designed and developed numerous custom-built applications for clients; and recently developed a robust Advocacy Hub.
We grew from that first conference room, to a shared working space, and into a small office on King Street, but we still needed more space for our growing team. We landed on an awesome, open work space at 108 S. Washington Street. The space invited collaboration, hard work, and an occasional game of ping pong.
2016 was a big year for IMGE. Our first Presidential election year led us to reach some major milestones. The internal infrastructure we had been working on for our first two years, and a roster of exciting clients who understood the importance of digital, allowed for 2016 to be a "Breakout Year" for IMGE.
We said goodbye to our fearless leader, Phil Musser, and welcomed a new leadership team. Phil Cox, Ethan Eilon, Gary Coby, and Gerrit Lansing bring a fresh perspective and a wealth of digital experience to IMGE.
To keep up with our staff growth, and ensure delivery of the best digital products and strategy for our clients, we transitioned to a new team of teams structure. This new structure prioritizes comprehensive approaches to our clients' needs and allows us to bring the best ideas to the forefront.
