Twist Marketing, a privately-held Calgary based professional services organization and provider of marketing consulting, technology and creative services, is pleased to announce that it has earned a position on the 2006 list of Alberta Venture’s Fastest Growing Companies. Twist Marketing has achieved a 3-year sales increase of 176%, with a total assets increased of by 674% over the same 3-year period.

Catherine Proulx, President and CEO, credits strong growth to the company’s integrated approach to marketing and strong client return on investment. “Our clients realize that competitiveness is built on a foundation of interconnected business factors across their organizational units from marketing & sales, operations, finance, IT, and human resources. Our Integrated Thinking approach leverages our combined experience and track record of success to solve our clients’ most demanding marketing challenges – from brand management & awareness to international expansion, employee recruitment, and employee & shareholder communications.”

A rapidly growing client base for the technology group’s proprietary Enterprise Content Management software – which helps organizations to more effectively create, manage and publish business content - led to the 2005 spin-off of a new company, Canterris™. The spring 2006 release of the latest Canterris™ ECM software suite will target small and medium enterprises requiring greater employee efficiency, regulatory compliance adherence, file server consolidation and web publishing capabilities. Canterris™ ECM suite includes enterprise scale functionality in the areas of web content management, document management and digital asset management.

Proulx sees momentum for continued company growth. “Companies are expecting greater depth and value from a marketing partner than traditional ‘creative focused’ firms are currently providing. Complimenting our award winning creative services team, the emergence of our marketing consulting and technology divisions provides client organizations with an accomplished team of senior, industry specific consultants.”

“With many of our clients realizing substantial increase in revenue and brand awareness since engaging our services, new companies are approaching us to realize similar value in their organizations.”

Companies are ranked by assessing points for 10 different categories, including growth in sales, assets, profitability and employees.
