Our mission: To help our clients solve business challenges by creating compelling content, distributing it via digital and traditional channels, and measuring its impact on business results.

Roop & Co. is an award-winning, strategic, integrated communications agency based in Cleveland. Since our founding in 1996, we have been committed to exceeding client expectations and industry standards through value-driven counsel, high-quality implementation and total accountability. Our entire team is dedicated to providing a hands-on, high-quality approach for each of our clients.

We believe that building close, long-term relationships with our clients is the cornerstone of our success. By working as an extension of our clients’ marketing and communications departments, and not just as an external agency, we help them achieve their goals.

Why Our Clients Love Us

We forge longstanding relationships with our clients by exceeding their expectations and staying on the forefront of their needs. In fact, our two founding clients have been with us since we started more than 20 years ago. Here’s what our clients appreciate most about working with us:

  • Professionalism:

We always deliver a high-quality, polished work product that is on deadline, on budget and on target.

  • Responsiveness:

Our flat organizational structure allows us to quickly turn around projects for our clients and helps to control costs.

  • Creativity:

We inject a dose of creativity into our clients’ communications that cuts through the clutter and generates awareness.

  • Business-Mindedness:

We know the language of serious business. We create compelling communications from subject matter that is complex and/or technical.

  • Industry expertise:

We’re on top of trends and know the vernacular of the industries we serve, which enables us to create communications that resonate with our clients’ target markets.
