Brand825 Ranks Among Highest-Scoring Businesses on Inc. Magazine’s Annual List of Best Workplaces for 2023

Brand825 has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list in the Extra Micro category. Featured in the May/June 2023 issue and prominently featured on, the list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or a virtual facility.

Brand825 started as a passion project of Kedran Brush and Cindy Baker, two women with more than 60 years of combined marketing experience. After serving in various executive-level marketing positions, Brush and Baker launched their agency as a place that would foster their love of brand storytelling and desire to work closely with clients in a variety of industries, including healthcare, education and fintech.

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 591 honorees this year. Each company that was nominated took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine overall score and ranking.

“This recognition as one of Inc. magazine’s Best Workplaces is a testament to the strength of each member of our team, and the collective dedication we have to make Brand825 a workplace we’re proud of,” said Kedran Brush, co-founder of Brand825. “We love what we do, and that’s reflected not only in the quality of our work, but in the quality of our workplace, as well.”

“Being named to Best Workplaces is an honor that only a small fraction of companies have been able to claim,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Proving to the world that you’re a magnet for talent and have a culture that keeps teams engaged, productive, and proud to come to work is a truly remarkable achievement.”
