Independent creative agency Zambezi has been named to the Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2016 list of 100 Largest Women-Owned Businesses in Los Angeles County. Zambezi comes in at number 50, ranked according to revenues of $15.1 million in 2014 and $16.9 million 2015, with a total headcount of 62 employees. It is the second year in a row that the agency has been named to the list.

“It’s an honor once again to be counted among the top businesses in Los Angeles,” said Jean Freeman, COO Zambezi. “Advertising needs more women in ownership roles, truly guiding companies. Zambezi’s primary mission is to serve clients at a high level – but my hope is that we’re also seen as an example of the future of this industry.”

The Los Angeles Business Journal also singled out Zambezi for management’s buyout of principal owner Kobe Bryant last year, and the hiring of Executive Creative Director Josh DiMarcantonio and Chief Strategy Officer Kristina Jenkins. Zambezi has projected a 60% increase in revenue for 2016 and to accommodate their expansion they’ve moved to 15k square-feet headquarters in Culver City.
