Eleanor Kubacki is the founder and CEO of EFK Group, the firm that bears her personal initials and passion for success. As a multi-million dollar advertising agency, that specializes in digital solutions, ranked as the 18th fastest-growing, privately held firm in the region, it’s humble beginnings come as a shock to most. Flashback 15 years, to when Eleanor established the agency in Trenton, NJ, out of a one bedroom apartment financed by credit cards. Her drive to “give back” to the community she grew up in inspired her to originally focus on branding and advertising exclusively for not-for-profits.
Since then, Eleanor’s dedication and creative take on rebranding her clients has resulted in very successful campaigns for Kean University, The Atlantic Club Casino, Mercy Health System, Rider University, Lourdes Health System and Rita’s Italian Ice, to name a few. While Eleanor has enjoyed running a successful ad agency for close to two decades, her fervor for philanthropic work remains.
She has raised nearly $2.5 million for the Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia and also served on New Jersey Governor’s Conference for Women Board. As a true force to be reckoned with, it comes as no surprise that she was named “40 under 40” by NJBIZ magazine.
