About us

To understand our clients’ needs, we first understand their businesses.

Lumency is a brand side sponsorship and experiential marketing consultancy. We work globally from bases in New York, Toronto and Chicago. Established in 1996, we are architected to evolve and built to perform with a client-centric business model. To understand our clients’ needs, we first understand their businesses. Well beyond a service provider to our clients, we see ourselves as a long-term business partner with an insider’s perspective of their business and needs.

This we believe

Why do we do what we do?

It’s simple. At Lumency, we get out of bed every day to be better. Better than we were yesterday, better than we were last month, last year – even better than our clients expect us to be. Better together than any one of us could be on our own. Better is what motivates us.

Our Core Values

Behavioral traits that are inherent to our organization

Our core values are the few behavioral traits that are inherent to our organization. These are the values that we are intolerant of compromising on. Our core values are not a matter of convenience. They cannot be extracted from Lumency any more than a human being’s conscience can be extracted from their person. We use Lumency core values to guide every aspect of our organization, from hiring and retention to business strategy and performance management.

Credibility

Our credibility is our greatest asset. We do what we say we will do. Deeds speak.

Transparency

Through transparency comes trust. Trust is the foundation of real teamwork and of true partnership.

Kaizen

Kaizen is a philosophical notion of continuous improvement. Real, meaningful change in business and in life doesn’t come from great leaps forward, but from doing things a little better each day.

Ownership

Radical accountability, we each do what needs to be done because it’s what we expect of ourselves and of each other. Owners take results personally.
