Ruckus and the Chamber have entered into a new partnership, as the Midwest-based agency assumes responsibilities as creative and digital agency for the Chamber’s web presence. With a 10-year history of serving many member- and donor-based organizations, Ruckus is in a unique position to understand the needs of the Chamber, a long-standing member-based Kansas City entity. Ruckus will help lead strategy, design, and development within the digital realm.

We want to increase the Chamber’s brand reach, maximize the stories and accomplishments of our partner organizations and members, and drive engagement,” said Melanie Mattes, senior vice president of marketing for the Chamber. In our search for an agency partner, it was Ruckus Group’s strategic thinking, collaborative approach, and willingness to work closely with our in-house marketing team that we believe will best help us achieve our goals. Plus, they are just fun to work with!”

Work is already underway, with an overall projected launch date of November 2024. As the Chamber moves through its 137th year, new campaigns and community outreach efforts are a top priority.

The Chamber is committed to the communities it serves and has a strong brand reputation, member experience advancements, and growth trajectory,” said Chamberlin. “We look forward to partnering with the Chamber team to showcase all that the Kansas City business community has to offer.”
