We Got The Beat: CNP’s Greatest Hits From the 2018 ADDY Awards

We’re so excited! (And we just can’t hide it.) Last week, our crew attended the 2018 ADDY Awards, hosted by AAF Polk County at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland.

An annual event to honor excellence in advertising, The ADDYs offer local industry pros an opportunity to get our fancy on and celebrate the area’s raddest creative work.

With the exception of the unnerving “MUST BE BORN BEFORE 1997” sign posted at each bar, this year’s totally awesome theme brought us back to a time when shoulder pads, teased-to-high-hell hair and Tom Cruise were all perfectly normal. Gotta love the 80s. Continue Reading

Merry Christmas, From Our People to Yours

I’m not quite sure when or how it happened, but somehow December is drawing to a close and 2018 is right around the corner. Before we take a break from Santa’s ad shop to spend some quality time with our families, I’d like to thank our wonderful clients for giving us the opportunity to make a living doing what we love (and perhaps, more importantly, for helping ensure that we still love doing it when the work day is through).

CNP Named to Ad Age’s Best Places to Work List

We’re pleased to announce today that CNP was named to Ad Age’s 2016 Best Places to Work list.

Humble competence is one of our agency’s core values, but we would be remiss if we didn’t tell you this award is kind of a big deal. Ad Age considered agencies, media companies and in-house teams with more than 15 full-time employees for this honor—and of the 50 companies recognized nationwide, CNP came in at number 20. According to Agency Spotter, there are upwards of 120,000 agencies in the US.  Continue Reading

The Business Observer’s Observations About Our Business

The past year has been an incredibly productive journey for CNP, and we’ve learned a lot about how to service our clients better and keep everyone on this boat of ours rowing in the same direction.

CNP Makes Florida Trend’s Best Companies List – Again

How do I say this without bragging? CNP has been named one of the Best Companies to Work For in Florida for the second year in a row! OK, that’s definitely bragging, but we’re still very proud to make the list. Over the past year or so, we’ve been working hard to refine our vision and internal processes in an effort to ensure CNP is a place that delivers GREAT work to our clients, but also is a place where our employees love to work. With 100 companies on the list, we moved up to No. 10 from the 27th spot last year in the Small Biz category (Cue applause). Continue Reading

CNP Named One of Florida’s Best Companies to Work For

One of only 100 companies to make the cut, CNP was ranked 27th in the Best Small Companies category.

Florida Trend released its annual list of Florida’s Best Companies to Work For in its August issue, and I’m very excited to announce that CNP made the cut!

I would like to think it’s our no-cap vacation policy (don’t abuse it), afternoon Frisbee breaks (I’d rather that than an afternoon cigarette break), cupcakes on your birthday (or a cheese platter), Bring Your CNPuppy to Work days (which is really any day), or our weekly Happy Hours (always be responsible) that make us one of Florida’s best places to work.

But, the biggest perk we offer our staff is the ability to come in every day and collaborate with one of the most intelligent, creative and fun-loving groups of people in the state. Everyone here is collectively passionate about pushing the boundaries on every project and continuing to innovate and dominate every project they work on.

The reaction from around the office:


Florida Trend’s evaluation includes a review of company policies, practices, and demographics, as well as results from an anonymous employee survey that asks questions about company culture, job satisfaction, work environment, and pay and benefits.

CNP Takes Home Gold and Silvers at the 2015 Polk County ADDY Awards

2015 Brings New Talent to CNP

From the team at CNP, we want to wish you a happy 2015! We recently brought a new and energetic face into the office, specifically on our Account Services team. Welcome Maggie! 

Maggie Ross

Culture2A recent college grad, Maggie is the youngest member of the team and fresh into the workforce. As CNP’s new Account Coordinator, she assists familiar faces Whitney and Katrina with their client work. In addition to helping out around the office, Maggie can be found learning even more about agency life than she even knew existed – such as how to throw a frisbee during frisbee breaks at the office or mastering her best poker face in a round of Werewolf after work on Fridays. She brings knowledge of online blogging and social media marketing to the team as well as degrees in Journalism, Advertising, Public Relations and Ad Design. Learn more about Maggie in her agency profile. 

Getting back into the routine around the office since the holidays is always a push, but the team came back with more drive than ever! We can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for us.
