W.Bradford Recognized as #7 LGBTQ-Owned Firm in the United States

Clutch, the go-to platform for its massive collection of client reviews, data-driven content, and agency shortlists, tapped W.Bradford as part of its top-10 LGBTQ-owned marketing agencies in the United states for the second year in a row, as part of its commitment to advancing supplier diversity during Pride Month.
The recognition acknowledged exceptional client reviews for the work W.Bradford has performed in the past, as well as the leadership W.Bradford's CEO provides for the agency as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

"Our stance on love and acceptance for all LGBTQ+ individuals as both team members and clients is central to what makes W.Bradford different," said Will Sears, Founder & CEO. "We also find great pride in being part of the Clutch family as well as being an NGLCC-certified business for companies that value diverse supplier partnerships, particularly in the Cincinnati business community."

Founded in early 2017, W.Bradford opened its doors in Miami as a full-service diverse marketing agency with rapid growth and a roster of globally prominent brands such as L'Oreal and MasterCard. Now based in Cincinnati, W.Bradford continues its vibrant approach to content marketing and creating brand-driven campaigns for its growing roster—now including a surging number of Cincinnati companies.

"The spirit of openness in Cincinnati is critical to why W.Bradford will thrive in the Cincinnati market," Sears said. "For companies to see the full picture of their potential for success, they have to see the full person in each of their customers, including those from diverse backgrounds whether related to sexual orientation, gender identity, or racial and faith backgrounds."

Clutch proudly continues in its third year in partnership with W.Bradford. Austin Ellis, Clutch Customer Operations Representative, believes a core part of the partnership includes W.Bradford's prominent status on the company's newest and most coveted list.

"At Clutch, empathy and intentionality stay at the top of mind, especially when thinking about supporting the LGBTQ+ community," Ellis said. "As part of Pride Month, it becomes even more important to promote visibility and inclusion for LGBTQ+ individuals and businesses. Here at Clutch, our certification efforts aim to recognize and promote LGBTQ+ owned businesses of all sizes and services."
