Walk West Recognized as Fastest-Growing Agency in NC

Walk West Recognized as Fastest-Growing Agency in NC
Raleigh, NC (August 15, 2018) – Walk West is on the rise — the full-service marketing agency debuts at No. 647 on Inc. Magazine’s 2018 list of fastest-growing private companies, the Inc. 5000.

In the last four years alone, we’ve grown from two full-time staff to an energetic, lively team of 35. The impetus behind our growth: the partnership between Founder Brian Onorio and current CEO Donald Thompson. Their goal: Build a transformational agency, innovate new technologies and create jobs in North Carolina.

Our inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list is a direct result of the confidence clients place in us and the successes we achieve for them. We deliver inventive work that elevates our clients’ missions and delivers high-impact outcomes, regardless of platform.

Velcro Companies gave us a unique challenge: discuss the copyright law in an innovative way. The #DontSayVelcro campaign garnered more than 1 billion media impressions and was the No. 13 trending video on YouTube. The campaign won a Gold and Bronze Telly Award, and was touted in AdAge for “creating a dialog online that hadn’t existed before.”

“The entire Walk West team has been tremendous to work with,” said Julie Barry, Director of Global Brand for Velcro Companies. “I’ve been on several [ video ] shoots, but none more fun than this.”

Our three-year growth of 779% is a product of trusted client relationships like NC State University, Duke University, Forrest Firm and American Underground. With the addition of the NC State Fair on our partnership roster, Walk West is solidifying our place as a go-to in the Raleigh market. And we’re just getting started.
