“Abbie and Emily are amazing talents,” notes SFW CEO Ged King. “We’re working on significant projects with brands like LifeStraw and Corona Tools and we were recently named Agency of Record for Kindermusik International. We’re excited about growing in new directions and making sure that we have the right people in place to exceed our clients’ expectations is a big part of our strategy.”

2016 marks the sixth consecutive year SFW was named to the Triad Business Journal’s Fast 50 list of the fastest growing privately held companies in the Triad. The agency has also been named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest growing private companies five years in a row.
