The Profile Edition of the Leading National Advertisers Report.
Every year, Advertising Age magazine compiles and publishes a directory of in-depth information about the nation's 100 top marketing companies.

Digital version
A portion of this research appears in the June 23, 2003, print edition. But a much more detailed digital version can be found and downloaded here.

The attached .pdf file is 78 pages long and contains detailed profiles of each marketer. This includes sales; earnings and other financial data; executives by name and title; divisions; brands; locations; advertising agencies; media buyers and more for each marketer.

>>> Download

Note: If the .pdf file does not begin to download but rather opens in your browser, right-click (click and hold on a Mac) on the link and chose "download link to disk" and then open the file from within Acrobat Reader.
If you don't have a copy of the Adobe Acrobat Reader software needed to view a .pdf file, you can quickly download a free PC or Macintosh version from the Adobe download page.
