Our History

Sq1 was founded in 1995 by Ernie Capobianco and quickly grew into an award-winning agency that pushed the boundaries of how brands utilize data in advertising. In 2010, Gabe Winslow and John Holmes partnered with Ernie to establish Sq1 West in Portland, OR, which garnered a whole new slew of creative accolades.

In 2015, Sq1 was acquired by Ansira, a data-driven marketing firm specializing in CRM and loyalty, through-channel marketing automation, and national and local media. Today, Ansira is the only company recognized in both the TCMA and customer data and engagement by Forrester Waves. Ansira and Sq1 work with over 25 Fortune 500 companies and enjoy a 96% client retention rate with services that help brands close the customer expectation gap.

What our clients
& Partners are saying

  • Sq1 has been instrumental in making it easier than ever for Portland fans to buy Trail Blazers tickets. And with Sq1's assistance with our digital marketing strategy, we've become one of the NBA's most innovative teams in this space.

    Dewayne Hankins, Chief Marketing Officer
    Portland Trail Blazers

  • The task was to introduce a new brand in a low interest category and generate sales during the off-peak selling seasons with a 90 day project deadline. Not only did Sq1 readily accept the challenge, they designed a program that resulted in active sales leads within a couple of days followed by a continuous flow of qualified sales leads. Needless to say, we are a happy client.

    Rex Anderson, Director of Communications
    Daikin

  • Data and analytics, coupled with a deep understanding and genuine appreciation of the customer journey continues to transform the way we go to market and engage with our customer. We believe Sq1 is the ideal partner to move Aflac forward as we continue to revolutionize marketing in the insurance industry.
