Moving up three notches from number 20 last year, the list is based on the number of agency employees in the Tampa Bay market.  Yes, we do have a new office in Orlando, but for some reason, a thousand years ago, the business journals all got together and decided that all of Polk County belongs to Tampa — a classification with which a good chunk of the county might disagree. One of these days, I’d love to see the I-4 Corridor Business Journal serve our entire growing mega-region.

While ranking agencies solely by number of employees is certainly not indicative of their relative quality, it does bring up a great opportunity to express how proud I am of our amazing team — now 22 strong. They’re among the most creative, intelligent and talented groups of people in the state, and any time I see our company’s name in print, I would be remiss not to recognize them.
