Lexicon Marketing is headquartered in Los Angeles, California, and is the leading pure-play direct marketer to the U.S. Hispanic population. Over the past 30-years, the Company has emerged as one of only a few organizations that has effectively overcome the barriers to selling premium products to this demographic on a national scale. Founded in 1974, Lexicon’s core ESL product, Inglés Sin Barreras (ISB), has garnered exceptional customer satisfaction ratings, market share greater than ten times that of its nearest competitor and 95 percent brand awareness. Lexicon has leveraged the considerable brand presence built for ISB into a platform of growth by launching a variety of products and vehicles to build the Sin Barreras (without barriers) brand, which is synonymous with acculturation and advancement in the Spanish speaking market.
