Companies across a variety of industries, including technology, retail and advertising/marketing, are chosen for their entrepreneurial innovation, creativity, inspiration and proven growth.

“It’s been a big year for us, and we’ve further established our foothold as a leading B2B agency,” says Mike Santoro, president of Walker Sands. “We couldn’t have done it without our driven, dedicated employees and the amazing work that they’re doing. They have been fundamental in the success and growth of our company.”

In this past year alone, Walker Sands has expanded its client roster to include fast-growth innovators in tech such as Nintex and Uptake, hired 37 new employees and opened an office in Seattle, which will have five employees by the end of August. The agency has also launched two major research reports in recent months, The Future of Retail 2018 and State of Marketing Technology 2018, demonstrating Walker Sands’ commitment to continually building a strong foundation of expertise across domains.

In addition to being featured in the Inc. 5000 list, Walker Sands was also named the No. 13 company in Crain’s 2018 Best Places to Work in Chicago as well as the 2018 Best Small Agency to Work For by The Holmes Report.
