Minority- and Woman-Owned Firm Earns No. 871 Spot on Inc. Magazine’s Top 5000 List

September 2, 2014 — Washington, D.C.

Showing a remarkable growth of 516% in three years, Isom Global Strategies is among the top Advertising & Marketing Companies on the 2014 Inc. 5000. At #871 out of 5000 Isom Global Strategies is considered one of the fastest growing privately held companies, according to Inc. Magazine.  

“For 33 years Inc. has welcomed the fastest growing companies in America into a very exclusive club,” says Eric Shurenberg, President & Editor-in-Chief of Inc. Magazine. “As an Inc. 5000 honoree, Isom Global Strategies now shars a pedigree with Intuit, Zappos, Under Amour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Cliff Bar, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle…”

Isom Global Strategies (IGS), formerly Isom Events, is a full-service strategic marketing and management firm. A woman-owned small business, IGS has a track record of meeting project deadlines, providing excellent program services, containing budget costs and maintaining open lines of communication and transparency with agency and key program stakeholders. IGS provides strategic marketing, public relations and event planning consulting services. Current and recent clients include the US Marine Corps, the US Coast Guard, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Air National Guard, the US Department of Defense and Friendship Public Charter Schools.

“We are ecstatic about receiving this level of recognition for our work and honored to be among our peers in the industry,” says Towan Isom, President and CEO of IGS. “Our team deserves all of the accolades – their dedication to excellence continues to move us forward.”

IGS is only four years old. The company’s revenue was at $392,000 in 2010 and reached $2.4 million just three years later in 2013, while 2014 is proving to be the firm’s best year yet. IGS has a growing staff of 22 professionals – some serving onsite at some of the most secure government facilities as key strategists and advisors to national leaders. IGS is well positioned to compete with larger firms and attributes that capability to its commitment to innovation and service.

“IGS makes it possible for businesses to reach new audiences, create new opportunities and introduce new technologies and techniques in communications and outreach strategies. We go where no one has gone before and get results no other company has ever achieved,” says Ms. Isom. “Service is the lifeblood of the IGS culture and of our existence. Eighty percent of our business is from referrals. Our customers remember us well beyond the conclusion of their projects.”  

The Inc. recognition ceremony for IGS and the other companies takes place in October. Among the scheduled speakers are Dell’s Michael Dell and GoDaddy’s Bob Parsons.
