Helping Organizations Drive Efficiencies and Adapt to Evolving Processes
Reports(1) show that among the biggest challenges companies face when undergoing digital transformation and adopting a data driven culture—which are top-priority strategies for many businesses—are related to people and process. This is where CE Strategy helps. The company leverages business strategy along with data science, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, to help its clients harness and analyze valuable data, and makes it accessible and easy to share across departments. The data is leveraged to develop and guide strategies that address key areas of clients’ businesses, including marketing, operations, fundraising, and human capital management. It can be used, for instance, to optimize operations, help organizations more effectively target and engage with prospective customers, and mitigate churn before it takes place.
Realizing the potential that data has to transform entire organizations, CE Strategy shifted its focus from marketing intelligence to overall business intelligence and last year changed its name to reflect its broader capabilities. Its core services include the aggregation and visualization of data, insight through data science, development of business strategy, and continuous optimization and measurement.
Since its inception, CE Strategy has reached impressive milestones, including:
- Achieved three consecutive years of double digit year-over-year growth
- Named among AdWeek’s Top 100 Fastest Growing Agencies
Amy Gurske, Director of Client Strategy
- Boosted its senior leadership team with the addition of Amy Gurske, who has held management positions at Grainger and Amazon Business, and brings a wealth of analytics, supply chain management experience, and a PhD in organizational psychology to the business

Looking Ahead: Promoting the Power of Data
CE Strategy plans to continue strengthening relationships with its current clients that span multiple industry verticals, including advertising, B2B, financial services, fundraising, higher education, politics, and retail industries. It hopes to attract new clients by continually demonstrating the enormous value of its distinct approach to providing data insight and business strategy to drive a company’s retention and growth.
