Ideas That Evoke, a digital, social and public relations agency serving clients in the beauty, salon professional, lifestyle and luxury industries, recently announced the expansion of its business to the West Coast. Founded in 2009 by Kelly Ehlers, the agency works with industry-leading brands to pioneer marketing, influencer and digital strategies in today’s hyperconnected media landscape. The second location, based in Los Angeles, will be opened by Jeffrey C. Lunnen, managing director for Ideas That Evoke.

“We’ve always been about people first. Our expansion to the West Coast will support our continued growth as an agency and success pushing the envelope in a non-traditional space,” said Ehlers, founder and president of Ideas That Evoke. “Our clientele in Southern California has significantly grown over the past several years, and we look forward to better maintaining, building and serving these relationships in the beauty, lifestyle and salon professional space and beyond.”

After almost a decade of experience, Ideas That Evoke has been considered one of the nation’s most trend-setting companies. During the last three years, Evoke has touted growth of more than 714%, and ranks as the No. 8 Top Company in the State of Wisconsin. The company was recently identified as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” by Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur360™ List, a premier study delivering the most comprehensive analysis of private companies in America. The Madison-based idea agency has also received back-to-back recognition on the Inc. 5000 list, a collection of the nation’s most competitive emerging businesses. To date, the agency attributes this success to a 100 percent referral-based system fueled by Ehlers’ vision to create real-time results for clients.
