Kazaam takes home 9th place in the 100 fastest growing privately-held companies in the Philadelphia region.

Kazaam Interactive, a full-service digital marketing agency located in Newtown, PA, was ranked 9th out of the top 100 fastest growing, privately held companies in the Philadelphia region.    Kazaam Interactive was awarded this distinction at the Annenberg Center on Thursday, October 27th.

The Philadelphia 100 was started in 1988 by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum of Greater Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Business Journal, and the Wharton SBDC. It is considered one of the most sought after awards in the region and ranks businesses based on revenue growth over the most recent three year period.

Kazaam’s President and CEO, Tom Marotta, reflects on the strides his young company has made since starting the agency in 2007 with co-founders TJ Stevens and Mark Stralka. “With their exceptional talent and passion, our associates have created an energy that our clients thrive upon – ultimately bridging innovation and expertise from our organization – and the brand and marketing leadership of our clients. This powerful combination has helped us develop a highly successful track record of bringing the most impactful and engaging digital solutions to our brands and customers. Our positive reputation has allowed us to expand by growing our client base and account size over the past few years — without compromising our internal model for innovation, strategic thinking and solution delivery excellence.”

Throughout Kazaam’s considerable growth, the agency has maintained its genuine, small-agency personality and authentic dedication to its clients – and their culture remains at the core of the company’s mission. Marotta says, “The success in the growth of our business is about the strength and impact of the roles we play, more than it is about just increasing the quantity of associates within our company.”

TJ Stevens, Managing Partner and CSO, adds, “When I look back on what we’ve accomplished in just four years, I think of great moments like when we turned single projects into agency-of-record accounts, or when we had opportunities to develop digital platforms and frameworks that are now used by some of the largest companies in the world.” T.J. also leads Kazaam Media Group, a segment of Kazaam’s business that offers digital advertising planning, buying and management services. Earlier this year, Kazaam was awarded EHS’ prestigious “Advertiser of the Year” award for advertising media campaigns for various initiatives, including a significant campaign for an Alzheimer’s disease launch brand.

Another key milestone for Kazaam this year was releasing its first iPad enterprise app, Mobile Locker. This unique app streamlines content and presentation delivery and synchronization, with an interface that can be customized to reflect a specific brand or company. It operates with HTML5, giving the user the ability to easily create, manage, and update interactive business promotions, demonstrations, eDetails, sales aids, corporate training materials, and conference booth apps inside or outside the office.    Mark Stralka, Managing Partner and CTO, says, “Kazaam plans to further expand its Mobile Locker platform in 2012 to power additional business solutions, including advanced CRM features, corporate asset distribution and synchronization, and CME solutions.”

Looking ahead, Kazaam feels the explosive growth in the digital marketing industry, along with the firm’s acquisition and development of new talent, has them positioned for continued success in 2012 and beyond.    The company is already working to bring new capabilities and services to its customers in the areas of Advertising Media, Mobile and Social Media. With so much work ahead of them, Marotta takes a brief moment to pause and recognize the tremendous success they’ve achieved to date, “We thank all of our clients, friends and families that have supported us since our humble beginnings. And yet with so many exciting opportunities in the digital space, we feel our best days may still be ahead of us.    We are confident we will continue to exceed our customers’ expectations as we keep building on the strength and talent of our team.”

Kazaam Interactive has worked with over fifty of the world's largest brands, providing personalized experiences for customers and creating powerful relationships and customer engagements using digital channels. Strategic consultation, innovation, program execution, advertising media, creative services, analytics, and technology leadership are some of Kazaam’s services that it offers its clients.
