This week, MountainWest Capital Network announced the rankings for their 2015 list of Utah’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies. 97th Floor made the list, sitting comfortably at #72.

According to the Small Business Administration, only one in three companies survives 10 years or more, and just over a month ago, 97th Floor celebrated our tenth anniversary. It’s understandable, then, that ranking in the top 100 fastest growing companies in Utah, the state with the highest job growth rate in the nation according to Kiplinger, has us excited.

“It’s great to be recognized as an Utah Top 100 company in terms of growth percentage,” says Chris Bennett, 97th Floor’s CEO. “The best part is that we were not pushing to grow last year; instead, we were perfecting our systems and client services, which resulted in a 93% retention rate. Our inclusion on the list was a result of not ever losing clients, which I am very proud of.”

97th Floor’s growth as a company is largely due to an environment that encourages growth in its individual employees.

“Our culture of learning and growth has helped us to attract some of the brightest minds in the industry,” says Paxton Gray, Director of Marketing Operations at 97th Floor. “As we attract skilled marketers, the quality of our work improves, which has been the main driving force behind our growth.”

“At 97th Floor, we focus heavily on testing and innovation, which has helped us to produce better and better results for our clients. That consistent investment in development and experimentation is really what sets 97th Floor apart and has helped us to build comprehensive campaigns designed to deliver award-winning results.”

This rapid growth means that there is always work to be done. As we continue to build 97th Floor, we look forward to increasing our ability to elevate our clients’ brands, and to offer the highest quality marketing in the industry.
