Margie Traylor and Bret Giles, founders of Sitewire, the evolutionary marketing agency based in Tempe, AZ, were named the 2010 Arizona State Small Business Person(s) of the Year by the U.S. Small Business Administration. The two are being honored along with 100 other outstanding small business owners from across the country at a three day celebration to be held in Washington, D.C. this May.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) estimates that there are over 27 million small businesses in America, with more than half of Americans either owning or working for a small business. They drive innovation, create 60-80 percent of new jobs and increase U.S. competitiveness, according to the Administration. As such, the SBA recognizes these companies as major contributors to the strength of the American economy. National Small Business Week was designed to showcase some of the most successful and inspiring of these entrepreneurs. Award winners were chosen based on multiple key factors, including their business' fortitude under adverse economic conditions, growth in number of employees, innovativeness and contributions to community-oriented projects.

"Since its formation, Sitewire has excelled at adopting its business model to its target market, delivering an ROI Value Proposition to its clients," said John Henry Smith, Business Analyst for the Maricopa Community College Small Business Development Center. Smith, who has also been an advisor to Sitewire since 2003 and was the agency's nominator for the award, believes the founders' success is not only proof that their model works, but that a business can be run with a heart.

Over the last decade, Sitewire's client roster has grown to include top national brands Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Sears, Irvine Company, Sage and PC Mall. During that time, its founders have also been recognized twice by the Phoenix Business Journal's Best Places to Work in the Valley Award, the Arizona Small Business Development Center's Master Small Business Success Award, and the Fortune Small Business Best Bosses Award.
