Who We Are

Modern Marketing Partners (MMP) takes pride in our roots that date back to 1996, evolving from advertising agency to a very modern digital agency with deep understanding of both traditional marketing (branding, PR, advertising, events, new product launch, channel marketing, brochures and catalogs), coupled with advanced digital marketing skills (websites, content, SEO, email, video, social, PPC, analytics), and more.

MMP can solve the most complex marketing problems, launch startups to market leadership, and achieve lead generation and sales results through advanced, integrated, and multi-channel marketing. MMP embraces inbound and content marketing, pioneering new and refined processes including proprietary email marketing that drives measurable lead generation. Our market and category experience is equally broad:  business-to-business, business-to-consumer, deep technology marketing (software, IT, Legaltech, Fintech, Healthtech, HRtech, Ecommerce), manufacturing, associations and communities, professional services, and more.

Agency principals include Neil Brown, Heather Hawes, Lindsay Brown, and Steven Kluber. Neil brings 10 years of client-side brand management and CMO experience to each client assignment. He is a frequent contributor to Marketing News, Adweek, Advertising Age, BtoB magazine and others, and has authored 3 books on marketing and branding. Neil is active in the American Marketing Association, ANA Business Marketing, and is Chairman of the Small Business Center of Excellence, and the Construction Marketing Association.

Unlike many agencies, MMP has a history. Founded in 1996 as Brown Integrated Communications, and later merged with one of the oldest agencies in Chicago, Ross Llewellyn to form Ross/Brown Integrated Marketing Communications, rebranded as Modern Marketing Partners in 2012. Since our founding, MMP has been recognized by over 75 national awards for marketing excellence and creative execution. MMP is considered a top marketing agency in the Chicago region, nationally, and globally. Importantly, MMP is a Google Partner, certified in Google Analytics, Google AdWords, HubSpot, SEMrush, Pardot, WooCommerce, and more.
