From fueling client success to advancing employee development, Walker Sands’ commitment to accelerating growth has resulted in the agency reaching many milestones over the past two decades. Just last week we announced our acquisition of tech PR firm March Communications, kickstarting our expansion to the East Coast and bringing us up to 180 talented employees across offices in Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Boston and Atlanta.
This week, we’re celebrating another achievement for the agency: I’m honored to share that Walker Sands has made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in America for the ninth year in a row. This accomplishment comes on the heels of our recognition on the Crain’s Chicago Business Fast 50 list earlier this summer, another great testament to the hard work of our team in Chicago.
It’s incredible to see how far we’ve come since first being recognized by Inc. 5000 in 2013. Back then, we were a small team making strides in B2B. Now, we have offices across the country, have been named a #1 Best Midsize Agency to Work For by PRovoke, and are fortunate to partner with some of the most innovative companies in B2B tech — all while growing revenue by 205% and more than doubling headcount over the past five years alone.
At the heart of it all is our commitment to maintaining a thriving, people-first workplace of constant learning and supportive, driven teams. At Walker Sands, we know we are at our best when we are working together, uniting the unique expertise of people to deliver fantastic campaigns for our client partners. Our rapid growth is due to the hard work and dedication of our employees, and it makes me smile every time I see our teams coming together to find the fun with team spirit weeks or virtual races across the country. It’s these moments that lay the groundwork for an environment that allows our people to do some of the best work of their careers. From award-winning PR campaigns to cutting-edge branding and social media work, our teams have continued to drive innovation for our agency and clients, and have proven that their capabilities have no limits.
Our vision is to become the best B2B marketing agency in the world, and achievements like these prove that we have the right team and talent in place to get there. I’m grateful for the resilience and great work of everyone at Walker Sands, and I’m excited to continue accelerating the growth of the agency throughout the rest of 2021 and beyond.
