PORTLAND, Ore. (April, 1, 2014) – Anvil, an integrated marketing agency specializing in search engine marketing, social media marketing and analytics is pleased to announce the opening of new offices in Austin, TX and Las Vegas, NV. The expansion was spurred by a tremendous influx of new business in 2014.
The idea for a Vegas office was sparked back in 2002 when an Anvil Las Vegas weekend was a turning point for the business. Austin, on the other hand, plays host to several conferences that the Anvil team attends and speaks at including InnoTech Austin, Hero Conf and SXSW. The city also provides an uber-hipster environment, to which Anvil culture is already accustomed. New clients in the expanded cities include the Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos and Mellow Johnny’s.
“Anvil has seen unprecedented client growth in 2014 and we’re only at the end of Q1,” said Kent Lewis, Anvil Media President and Founder. “The decision to expand to new locations was a no brainer, as we have access to affordable and trend-setting talent in these untapped markets.”
Anvil will welcome new staffers to the Austin and Las Vegas locations. New hires include Carrie Armisen, Lance Boyle, Cat Mutts, Steven C. Phillips and Daniel Sullivan. Anvil will also add new services to its lineup including secret shoppers, skywriting, underwater street teams and slot machine analytics.
“I’ve always admired Anvil and wanted to be a part of their respected search engine marketing team, but I hated all the rain in Portland,” said Steven C. Phillips, General Manager of the Austin office. “Here at the Austin office, we’ll be enjoying the sun while optimizing performance on the patio bocce ball court and socializing at the in-house distillery.”
Lewis will celebrate the openings by driving an Anvil cab from Austin to Las Vegas the first week of April. Those interested in following the adventure can monitor the #anvilcab hashtag on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. His trip is meant to raise awareness for the new offices as well as raise funds for the First World Problems Fund.
