FORT MYERS, Fla. (Sept. 2, 2020) – Priority Marketing has been named among Florida’s top-ranked businesses as a finalist in GrowFL’s 2020 Florida Companies to Watch recognition program.

Now in its 10th year, Companies to Watch honors impressive second-stage companies that are developing valuable products and services, creating quality jobs, enriching communities and broadening new industries throughout Florida. GrowFL has recognized only 80 Florida-based businesses as finalists for the 2020 awards program, selected from more than 400 nominations statewide. Priority Marketing is one of just four Southwest Florida businesses to be named finalists.

“GrowFL received more than 400 nominations this year, and it’s gratifying to know that we’re not just regarded as a successful business in Southwest Florida, but across all of Florida,” said Teri Hansen, APR, president and creative director at Priority Marketing. “Our company has grown to over 40 employees that are working tirelessly to help our clients and partners achieve their marketing, public relations and advertising goals.”

“We applaud these first-round finalists who have proved themselves to be stand out companies in the state,” said GrowFL Founder Tom O’Neal. “They have and continue to demonstrate the resiliency and tenacity that comes along with being an entrepreneur. We know this year hasn’t been easy, so we’re excited to recognize our state’s admirable business owners and their teams. I have a feeling they’re just getting started.”

Together, the 80 finalists represent nearly 3,000 jobs and generate $670 million in annual revenue. On average, the companies anticipate growth of 13% in revenue and 23% in employment by the end of 2020.

Companies to Watch was developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation as a unique way to recognize and honor second-stage companies that demonstrate high performance in the marketplace with innovative strategies and processes. In addition to evaluating past growth and projected success, applicant companies are judged according to their special strengths and impact in their markets, communities and within the state – thus deeming them “worth watching.”

GrowFL will name its 2020 honorees on Nov. 12.
