Collective pride, personally invested in client success.

Because we own the company, we are committed to achieving great things with you.

Working with us feels like an extension of your marketing team. The benefits of working with an ESOP company is that each expert delivering marketing solutions is truly invested in producing stellar work, because your success is ours, too.

What is ESOP?

An ESOP, or employee stock ownership plan, is an employee benefit plan that enables employees to own a portion of their company.

Many studies, including a John Zogby Strategies survey in partnership with ESCA, report that ESOP companies create higher productivity, employee retention, tax advantages and higher job satisfaction.

With lower turnover and consistent account management, ESOPs encourage employees to innovate and give their all. We don’t see our clients as ‘accounts’.  We work with you as partners.

Our Team is Built with Your Growth in Mind

As a fully-distributed, 100% remote-based team and not anchored to a physical address, we hire only the top talent across the country proficient in sales and marketing alignment, content, design, marketing strategy and web development. Kuno is a diverse, experienced group of professionals who love what we do. Together, we push the limits of what our client-partners can achieve.

“We became an ESOP because we know that those who are driven by excellence are the best owners, and provide the utmost attention and service to clients.”

- Chris Knipper, CEO

“I have worked in the industry for 15 years, and never have I felt so integral with clients, nor have I felt so responsible for their success.

- Shannon Barnes, VP Enterprise Accounts
