At that time, the company comprised just five employees. Today, Ralf has made the agency one of the most creative in the country, with over 300 staff, and has repeatedly catapulted Grabarz & Partner into the top five of the most creative German agencies.

Grabarz & Partner is responsible for the domestic and international accounts of Volkswagen, Porsche, IKEA, Burger King, EURONICS, and Melitta.

Grabarz & Partner has been named one of ‘The World’s Leading Independent Agencies’ and ‘Agency of the Year’. It has been ranked as the number one creative agency in Germany and the most decorated German agency at several international award shows. Ralf and the other managing directors of the agency have been titled as the ‘Men and Women of the Year’ in the Agencies category, and at the same time, Ralf was awarded ‘Creative Leader of the Year’ by the Lead Academy, an award for which he was also nominated in 2012.

And, in 2017, Grabarz & Partner was Germany’s most successful independent agency at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, and voted Eurobest’s ‘International Independent Agency of the Year’.
