Source: Sherpa news release
Canadian Business and Maclean's today ranked Sherpa Marketing No. 136 on the 30th annual Growth 500, the definitive ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing
Founded in 1997, Sherpa had a lonely start as a one-person shop in Roseville, Ontario before rising to become one of Canada's leading technology driven marketing services companies.
Sherpa's formula for success has always been grounded in Founder and President Marty Fisher's commitment to staying two steps ahead of marketing trends. In an industry where most service providers compete by pushing marketing mixes that speak to present-day trends, Sherpa thrives on identifying and driving the tactics of tomorrow.
"Sherpa is steadfastly committed to delivering cutting-edge, effective marketing solutions," says Fisher. "Whether it was websites in 1998, search engine marketing in 2002, or apps in 2009; Sherpa has been able to identify the next big thing in marketing and to bring it early and effectively to our clients."
Today, with multiple offices across Canada, Sherpa's diverse team of more than 30 digital marketers, programmers, and designers deliver fresh and never-before-seen solutions to clients all over North America.
In the past year, Sherpa began to deliver Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality solutions, becoming one of the first and few marketing companies in Canada to break ground in the "XR" space. Sherpa's team also entered the experiential marketing space by wrapping the interior of a 20' x 8.5' trailer with 360-degree video footage to create an immersive, yet totally mobile, attraction. The effort was so successful, Sherpa will be announced as a Diamond award winner in the Best Digital Display Solution for the CDN Innovation Awards. More importantly, the client has ordered a second trailer to be built to service more events.
By deploying highly-capable teams of creative and talented people, Sherpa has managed to rank in the top 27% of Growth 500 - economic growth fuelled by a commitment to SEO, content marketing and a solid social media strategy.
Produced by Canada's premier business and current affairs media brands, the Growth 500 ranks Canadian businesses on five-year revenue growth. Growth 500 winners are profiled in a special print issue of Canadian Business published with Maclean's magazine and online at CanadianBusiness.com and Growth500.ca.
"The companies on the 2018 Growth 500 are truly remarkable. Demonstrating foresight, innovation and smart management, their stories serve as a primer for how to build a successful entrepreneurial business today," says Deborah Aarts, Growth 500 program manager. "As we celebrate 30 years of the Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies program, it's encouraging to see that entrepreneurship is healthier than ever in this country."
