SalesFactory + Woodbine (SFW) has been named to the Triad Business Journal’s 2014 list of 50 fastest growing private companies. This is the fourth consecutive year the agency has received this honor, but the first since The Sales Factory merged with Woodbine to become one of the largest independent marketing agencies in the Southeast.

SFW was recognized as the 20th fastest growing private company in the Triad at an event hosted by The Business Journal at the Carolina Theatre the evening of September 18.

The Sales Factory merged with Winston-Salem based Woodbine creative group in December 2013. The combined agency employs a team of dedicated creative professionals who have won two American Advertising Awards, 16 Graphic Design USA Awards, as well as an EFFIE and One Show, among others.

“The Fast 50 is one of the longest running awards by The Business Journal and it’s always an honor to be recognized,” states Ged King, CEO of SFW and recipient of the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 Small Business Person of the Year award. “Our agency has undergone tremendous growth this year and we’re not done yet.  We have great expectations for the coming years.”

In addition to the Fast 50, SFW has also been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing entrepreneurial companies three years in a row. The agency was one of just 20 companies based in the Piedmont Triad region of NC to make the list in 2012, after showing 98 percent growth in a three-year period measured from 2008-2011.
