Lucas Vandenberg is the founder and CEO of Fifty & Five, an award-winning social media marketing agency with offices in Los Angeles and Orlando. Founded in 2009, the Fifty & Five team is comprised of social media experts and marketing thought leaders who work with local, national and global clients.
“In 2008, social media was an afterthought for most brands. No one really understood the power of social media in those days. My dream was to help small businesses realize the potential of social media marketing as a tool to grow their companies,” explained Vandenberg. The marketing strategy that Vandenberg and the Fifty & Five team delivered to small businesses in those early days has lead to incredible growth in the last six years and a portfolio of national and global brands such as NETGEAR, Game Show Network, Hasbro, the happy egg co., Warner Brother’s, Mezzacorona Wine, Microsoft, Hong Kong Tourism, Toys R Us, SAP, Beringer Vineyards, Penfolds, SelectQuote, LAcarGUY, Kinecta Federal Credit Union and Blaze Pizza.
Prior to the creation of Fifty & Five, Vandenberg spent a decade developing and executing marketing strategies for clients such as Johnson & Johnson, P&G, Amgen, Beam Global, Skyy Spirits, Kroger, and CVS. “At Fifty & Five, we’re an agency that understands marketing, branding, and storytelling and we’ve made a commitment to use social media as the marketing vehicle for our clients,” said Vandenberg.
“We’re not a one-stop-shop creative or ad agency that will handle web-design, print ads, and your traditional PR and marketing. We’re specialists. We’re laser-focused on leveraging social media for our clients.”
Vandenberg speaks around the country on social media innovation to top companies, universities, and nonprofits as well as at business and marketing conferences. He has been a featured speaker for OMMA, USC, UCLA, Loyola Marymount, the CIO Logistics Forum, Videonomics, Orlando Chamber and many others.
