July 27, 2017 — V Digital Services has been named one of the Top 5 largest interactive marketing firms in the nation’s fifth—largest city by the Phoenix Business Journal.

In a report released July 21, the Journal surveyed 58 local firms who employ services such as social media and email to allow their clients to interact with customers. It ranked those businesses based on the number of Phoenix—area employees.

VDS’s ascension to the top rung of the Journal’s annual survey is a reflection of the firm’s rapid growth, both in Phoenix and elsewhere. The digital advertising agency, which is owned by Voice Media Group, the parent company of the iconic local publication Phoenix New Times, now operates in 13 major U.S. cities, including new offices in Seattle and Chicago along with a number of international markets.

“We’re pleased to be recognized by the Business Journal as one of Phoenix’s leading shops,” said VDS senior vice president Chris Bird. “It’s great to be in the Top 5, although not surprising given that we’ve experienced 40 percent year—over—growth in revenue.”

The ongoing expansion at VDS means the company “is definitely in hiring mode,” added Bird, who said people interested in joining the team should visit the VDS careers page at https://www.vdigitalservices.com/work—with—us/.

V Digital Services employs a team of more than 90 analysts and account managers who specialize in helping small and large businesses achieve success in the digital space through expertise in organic SEO, paid media, social media management, web development and both programmatic and pay—per—click advertising.

Along with VDS and Phoenix New Times, Voice Media Group owns and operates five other renowned alternative weekly newspapers and websites, including Denver Westword and Miami New Times. VDS, a Premier Google Partner, combines the reach of those established newspaper properties with cutting—edge digital strategies for customers.
