November 2008 issue of local business newspaper profiles CEO and co-founder William Gaultier and his advice on managing a global marketing agency

e-Storm International, a global interactive marketing and advertising agency, was profiled in a recent issue of the San Francisco Business Times, a local edition of American City Business Journals, the nation's largest publisher of metropolitan business newspapers. The entrepreneur profile of e-Storm CEO and co-founder William Gaultier comes only a few weeks after Inc Magazine identified the agency as one of the nation's fastest growing private companies.

The interview, found on page 30 of the November 14, 2008 issue of the San Francisco Business Times, features highlights from an in-depth interview by reporter Leena Rao. In the discussion, Mr. Gaultier answers questions about the agency, tips on client relations, growth and management strategies, and insights into his personal life. Among the various topics covered, Gaultier provides advice to potential entrepreneurs on the challenges and rewards of leading an interactive agency with an international presence and marquee clients across a wide array of verticals.

e-Storm International, which was founded in 1998 and maintains 22 employees in offices across the world, works with mid-market and enterprise companies to provide services such as marketing research, strategic marketing planning, interactive marketing audits, custom training and implementation services for SEO, SEM, social media and display advertising. When asked about the agency's strongest competitive advantage, Gaultier responded "being nimble (and) open to adding (new) services." On the question of what risks the agency has taken to date, he briefly discusses e-Storm's forthcoming plans to offer a proprietary search engine optimization (SEO) tool to its clients.

In August, Inc Magazine selected e-Storm as one of the nation's 5,000 fastest growing private companies of 2008, in addition to identifying it as one of the top 100 businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area. The 5,000 companies that made the list reported aggregate revenue of $185 billion and median three-year growth of 147 percent. Most important, the 2008 Inc. 5000 companies were engines of job growth, having created more than 826,033 jobs since those companies were founded. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and a list of the fastest-growing companies that can be sorted by industry and region can be found at the Inc 5000 website.
