“I am humbled and honored to be recognized for the work I have put forth because to me, it’s not work, it’s something that I genuinely love to do,” said Rost. “Each company is founded on the fact that we have the tools and expertise to make a meaningful impact on the businesses that we support.  We’ve learned and grown with technology, and we can see how our contribution has skyrocketed businesses to not only meet, but exceed their marketing goals.” 

With his entrepreneurial mindset and passion for marketing, Brandon founded beMarketing in 2010. Since that time, the firm has experienced consistent growth as one of the top full-service Marketing agencies in Montgomery County. beMarketing has received numerous recognitions over the years including being listed on the coveted Inc. 5000 list two years in a row (2019, 2020), the firm has been named one of Philadelphia’s Top 100 Fastest-Growing Companies for five years running as well as Philadelphia Business Journal’s “Soaring 76” list two consecutive years. Brandon himself has recently been named a MONTCO Millennial Superstar and Entrepreneur of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Montgomery County.

One of the keys to Brandon’s success is his “get it done” mentality and “lead by example” approach with his staff. He believes it’s not about the output, but the outcome that matters most which has become a key differentiator among beMarketing’s success as his team is laser-focused on producing results for their clients.
