Campbell, CA, August 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- National recruitment marketing agency CKR Interactive has been named to the 2011 Inc. 500/5000 list of fastest-growing private U.S. companies. This is the third year in a row that the agency has been recognized by Inc. Magazine for its continued growth.
Ranking #399 within the Advertising & Marketing category, CKR Interactive is acknowledged for its 13 percent increase in revenues between 2007 and 2010. Last year, the firm opened a New York City office, located on Seventh Avenue, as well as a Cleveland metropolitan area office.
“CKR Interactive’s continued growth is a reflection of the people who work here, the tremendous opportunity within our market and the outstanding clients who partner with us for effective marketing strategies and solutions,” states President & CEO Curtis Rogers.
In addition to growing CKR Interactive into one of the largest recruitment advertising agencies in the country with the ability to deliver integrated, global solutions via its OneAgent joint venture, Rogers is launching Peer Group US.
Affiliated with Peer Group Communications in the United Kingdom, Peer Group US is a dedicated Employer Value Proposition (EVP) and employer brand consultancy for both global and national organizations. Leveraging advanced research techniques and methodologies, Peer Group US will aid organizations in effectively communicating with their workforces throughout the entire employment experience.
The Inc. 500/5000 list also provides a glimpse into overall business growth conditions throughout the country. Similar to findings from the 2010 list, the top states for job creation include California, Texas, Illinois, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York. These states benefit from a mix of continued population increases, large metropolitan areas and top public and private research universities – conditions that create fertile ground for business growth.
California, home to CKR Interactive’s Silicon Valley headquarters, is again the location of the most significant job growth among companies that made this year’s list. Approximately 51,300 jobs were created during the past year by California-based companies, evidence that the state is still a major source of American innovation and expansion.
