Salt Lake City marketing agency named one of the nation’s fastest growing companies in 2011 by Inc. Magazine, and the momentum continues with sustaining growth and an acquisition.

Jakob Marketing Partners (JMP) announces the acquisition of All Nite Graphics, a Salt Lake City-based design firm and promotional products distributor, owned and operated by Ranee Stam. JMP is a full-service marketing firm based in Holladay, Utah, and Stam is now the art director, a new position created for her to leverage her talents and passion.

“We grew over 100 percent from ‘08 to ‘09, and were experiencing a similar rate of growth in 2010 – all organically,” said Julie Jakob, president and CEO, Jakob Marketing Partners. “I felt in order to continue to grow, we might look to acquire a similar business here in Utah that would complement our own, and foster client relationships in new industries. When we met Ranee, we felt like we found a perfect fit: we’d expand our billings and client base, and also gain a talented and respected art director. Ranee’s extensive background in the production end of offset printing, promotional products, screen printing and embroidery will be a huge asset to us.”

“The current clients of All Nite Graphics will definitely benefit from the merger with Jakob Marketing Partners because they now have a team of support staff available to them,” said Ranee Stam. “Our goal is to deliver more personalized marketing solutions, and we’re all excited about the combined knowledge and expertise Jakob Marketing Partners has to offer its clients.”

This news comes in the wake of JMP landing on the Inc. 500/5000 List, Inc. Magazine’s list of the nation’s fastest growing privately owned companies, and considered the “gold standard in entrepreneurial success.” JMP was ranked 937 on the list; the top 500 are printed in the September issue of Inc. Magazine and all 5000 are listed online.

“We’d never submitted an application to the Inc. 500/5000 before, so we were very surprised not only to have been selected, but we were shocked to have made it to the top 1,000 companies,” Jakob said. “Being recognized by a trusted brand at a nationwide level is beyond anything we’d ever expected.”

Continued Jakob, “This is truly a shared award; we couldn’t have gotten where we are today without the efforts of every single member of the JMP team. Our clients have high expectations and every employee does his and her utmost best every day to make sure those expectations are not only met, but exceeded.”

Jakob started JMP in 1999 after leaving her job in marketing at Wells Fargo Bank in Sacramento, Calif. She moved to Utah in 2004 with her family so her children could pursue ski racing, and remained a sole proprietor until 2008 when she rented office space, became an LLC and hired her first employee. Jakob Marketing Partners sees annual revenue of $4 million, and serves companies of all sizes in all industries.
