“A lot of what drives this agency is accountability. We're accountable to our clients and our employees not only from a performance basis as far as numbers, but also how we operate. When we make a commitment, it's a contract for us and defines the culture of the organization, and clients see that.”
-- Spyro Kourtis, president/CEO

The Hacker Group started off as a direct mail agency in 1986 but quickly evolved into a multichannel direct response agency that prides itself on its analytics and data capabilities.
