We’re very pleased and proud to have been named Thurston County’s 2012 Small Business of the Year by the Economic Development Council.
We were proud to be included as finalists alongside Ice Chips Candy (famous now for having been featured on ABC’s “Shark Tank”) and Meconi’s Italian Subs. It was particularly gratifying to see Meconi’s being recognized as they are a terrific client of ours, and we are extremely proud to have designed their new branding and marketing materials this year.
To have our name announced as the winner was a thrill. We appreciate and support the EDC so much for their efforts to recruit businesses to our area, retain current businesses and help others expand. It’s nice to reflect on the fact that one of the first things we did when starting Williams Group 20 years ago was receive counseling for our start-up from the EDC small business resource center staff.
Our staff at Williams Group (and at TAGS, too) is the big reason for our success. Their skill and creativity are what make us a great agency, and they also make this a fun place to work. Brenda and I enjoy coming to work every day because of them.
But of course none of this would be possible without our clients. We appreciate the opportunities we have to help them be successful in their marketing efforts, and we’ll do everything we possibly can to make that happen. We have had so many great clients through the years…thank you to each of you.
