For digital marketing agency POWERSHiFTER, it pays off being lean and mean. For the first time the Vancouver agency was named to the Business in Vancouver‘s Biggest Graphic Design Firms in B.C. list.
POWERSHiFTER is 25th on the list. “They changed the way agencies are measured this year,” said Creative Director and Founder JP Holecka. “Instead of the number of employees, they’ve measured gross billings.” POWERSHiFTER currently has just four full time and 4 part time employees but earnings approaching seven figures. The agency expanded from five employees in 2011. “We are sustaining 50 per cent year over year growth and already on track to pass our targets this year,” said JP Holecka, who founded the agency in 2001. “We are lean and mean but we can still play with the big guys.”
