Alberta Venture ranks Twist Marketing among fastest growing companies in Alberta

Calgary (January 20, 2011) – This year marks the third time that Twist Marketing has been selected for the Fast Growth 50 list that recognizes growth-oriented businesses in Alberta (2011 ranking - #31). The list is compiled annually by Alberta Venture and KPMG LLP. In selecting the 50 fastest growing companies, KPMG tabulates growth in revenue, assets, earnings and seven other categories over a three-year period.

“Given the down economy in the last few years, we are very proud of this accomplishment which demonstrates our abilities to adapt to changing circumstances while competing and winning at a high level,” says Twist Marketing Managing Director, Catherine Proulx. “The fact that we were the only Calgary marketing firm to make this list speaks volumes about the strength of our company and our ability to compete in a tough marketplace.”

Adds Twist Marketing CEO Roger Jewett, "Our merger with Creative Intelligence drove a large part of our growth this year. We expect to see additional new clients resulting from our combined strengths and efforts in 2011."

The selection criteria for the annual Fast Growth 50 list – Alberta’s Fast Growth Champions – is based on company growth over the most recent three-year period. Rankings were based on points awarded by an independent assessment panel in 10 specific categories that included growth in sales, assets, net earnings, number of employees, diversification, research & development, employee incentives, marketing, capital expenditures and working capital.
