Inc. 5000 Names MiresBall Among Fastest Growing Private Companies Fourth Consecutive Year

SAN DIEGO (Aug. 20, 2012) – Brand agency MiresBall ranks among the fastest growing private companies in the U.S., according to Inc. magazine. It is the fifth time and fourth consecutive year that the San Diego-based firm has achieved the distinction.

MiresBall, which increased revenues by 75 percent in the three years from 2008 to 2011, is number 2,946 on the Inc. 5000 list, 376 spots higher than its 2011 ranking. Since 2010, the agency’s ranking has soared 936 slots.

“Despite the persistently slow economic recovery, many marketers are wisely investing in their businesses and turning to firms like ours to help refresh or reposition their brands,” said John Ball, partner and creative director. “Our consistent growth is a reflection of our ability to help our clients succeed in the most challenging marketplace in decades.”

Since the start of the year, MiresBall has added clients in the food and beverage, education, technology and jewelry industries. The firm’s San Diego area clients include Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits, Hard Rock Hotel San Diego, Lux Art Institute and San Diego City College.

Earlier this month, the agency was recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in the U.S. for the second consecutive year by Outside magazine and Scott Mires, partner and creative director, attributes the firm’s continued success to its highly skilled 33-person staff.

“We are fortunate to have a group of very talented designers, writers and strategists,” Mires said. “Their passion and creativity show clearly in the exciting work we produce for our clients, and it’s the dedication and ingenuity of our team which drives our success.”
