Gravity - previously Gravity Media - is a full-service multicultural agency which focuses on more specialised segments of the traditional multi-racial market than the mainstream Hispanic and African-American communities. Though sometimes classified as an Asian-American specialist, it actually tends to target even narrower bands of cultural heritage, for example, Indian, Middle Eastern and Russian. It operates offices in New York and London. It is a unit of Findr Group, a diversified marketing services group originally co-founded in 2009 by Ukrainian-born entrepreneur Yuriy Boykiv, who in his previous job as international business director at DirecTV had been responsible for selling satellite subscriptions to immigrant families living in the US. He indentified a major flaw in DirecTV's pitch as being that no differentialtion was made between different types of, for example, Asian customers: Indian, Korean and Chinese were all treated as one. With that cultural differentiation as its guiding methodology, Gravity grew quickly, and the business was acquired at the end of 2016 by Dentsu Aegis Network. Gravity and its sister agencies Findr (mainly media and social) and Triomphant (PR and public affairs) continue to operate as a semi-autonomous entity within the wider DAN group.
