To be recognized for the second time as the fastest growing marketing agency in North Carolina is a testament to the partnerships we’re building with our customers. We’re thrilled with this distinction and we can’t wait to see what’s next. - Donald Thompson, CEO

Walk West announced today that it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s 2019 list of fastest-growing privately held companies, the Inc. 5000, for the second consecutive year. This achievement also marks the company as the fastest-growing agency in North Carolina for the last two years.

Walk West is based in Raleigh, North Carolina, a region that remains atop Forbes’ list of Best States for Business, while the Triangle is home to one of the country's best job markets.

Transforming the definition of a “traditional agency” by innovating with new technologies and concepts, Walk West has been generating compelling stories and content for clients in the Triangle and beyond for more than 10 years. It consistently pushes through the noise to execute impactful campaigns that set the agency apart from its competitors.

“Each day we come to work and focus on the why of our efforts...the charter to deliver results for our clients,” said Donald Thompson, CEO of Walk West. “To be recognized for the second time as the fastest growing marketing agency in North Carolina is a testament to the partnerships we’re building with our customers.

In addition to having experts in marketing, graphic design and media training, the Walk West differentiator encompasses viral-video stars Kim and Penn of The Holderness family on the video team, along with a robust government affairs practice led by Laurie Onorio. Distinction as an Inc. 5000 company continues to define Walk West as a go-to digital marketing firm and one of the best agencies North Carolina has to offer. With an expanding list of clients including Lenovo, N.C. State University, Astra-Zeneca, and local creative firm Creative Allies, Walk West continues to capitalize on the ever-changing digital-marketing needs of its diverse customers.
