Pontiac-based pushtwentytwo scores new clients as it grows

Downtown Pontiac-based pushtwentytwo is leveraging both a newly diverse client list and traditional automotive-oriented customer base for some significant growth, including four hires in the last year.

The 8-year-old public relations and marketing agency has traditionally relied on business from automotive suppliers to grow. Now it has added clients from a variety of sectors to boost its bottom line, signing four new clients since January. Another three are expected to be in the fold by this summer.

“We have continued to grow in (the automotive) sector and add some clients in the healthcare and IT sectors,” says Dave Sarris, partner with pushtwentytwo. “It’s be a really steady pace of growth. There haven’t been any game changers, just a steady growth rate.”

Currently 15 employees and three independent contractors work at pushtwentytwo, which is also looking at adding some interns this year. Some of its recent hires include senior account executives, creatives and copywriters. Sarris expects a few more hires as business continues to grow, especially in the automotive, healthcare and home building sectors.
