  • The Martin Agency
The Martin Agency is bigger than ever, measured by employees (about 580 in Richmond), revenue (estimated at $112 million in 2009 by Ad Age) and clients retail Hercules Wal-Mart). Initial shake-ups portended by a new chief creative officer, Norman, are settling now that he’s had about 20 months under his belt. The star is a significant hire, joining veterans Adams (chairman and chief executive) and Hughes (president) to form a triumvirate of managing partners in a city that some say — or hope — is moving toward a creative-based economy.
