Third Ear is the new name, adopted in 2019, for what was previously LatinWorks, a Texas-based agency traditionally regarded as one of the leading Hispanic shops in the US. However, it now generates an increasingly large part of its business from general market rather than multicultural work; thus the change of name. A string of significant wins during 2013 pushed it into first place among the country's Hispanic agencies that year, but it has slipped back since then. AdAge estimated revenues of $24m for 2017. More than half of billings were generated from non-multicultural marketing. The agency was founded in 1998 by Manny Flores and Alejandro Rujelas, previously senior marketers at Anheuser-Busch. Both men remain joint managing partners; Flores is CEO. Omnicom acquired a 49% shareholding in 2006. Two years later, LatinWorks absorbed the clients and staff of rival Hispanic agency Cultura, also part-owned by Omnicom. Sibling is a satellite unit, jointly owned with mainstream agency GSD&M.
