American Express Names Ruckus 2019 On the Rise Contractor of the Year

The Ruckus team is extremely proud to announce that the American Express Business Excellence Awards have named Ruckus the 2019 On the Rise Contractor of the Year.

The award is presented once a year to the small or mid-sized American company that displays the strongest blend of growth and market differentiation. Ruckus will be honored on June 13th in Washington D.C. at American Express’ annual Summit for Success, where business owners and executives discuss growth strategy.

This award, from a corporation as prominent as American Express, is a testament to Ruckus’ past, present, and projected success. Two projects that particularly contributed to our recognition were our work with Mobileye and the NYC Ferry. With tech giant Mobileye, we have worked over the past five years to build trade show experiences at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, before and after the company sold to Intel for over $15 billion. In our NYC Ferry project, we worked with private and public stakeholders to build a brand, website, and campaigns to support the launch of one of New York’s most popular mass transit options.

These contracts helped propel Ruckus to where it is today and set it on a path towards even greater growth. We look forward to the challenge of continuing to establish ourselves as one of New York’s leading agencies.

Ruckus would like to extend an enormous thanks to the amazing team of strategists, creatives, developers, account managers, and more whose work continues to earn recognition. We would also like to thank our many devoted clients, who we look forward to continuing to serve.
