Norwalk-based Inspira Marketing Group, an experiential marketing agency, has topped Inc.’s list of fastest-growing companies in Connecticut, ranking seventh in the state and second in the Stamford-Bridgeport metro area. In addition, the agency has received top honors as a six-time honoree, with an impressive overall nationwide ranking of 1,180, up more than 40% over 2017.
“We are honored to be among the innovative companies on this list and tremendously proud of the incredible team we’ve assembled that keeps us there year after year,” says Jeff Snyder, founder of Inspira. “This year, we’re celebrating our tenth anniversary, and this just adds to the excitement.”
Inspira was founded in 2008 by Jeff and Kim Pulczinski Lawton, two experiential marketing veterans. In addition to servicing world-class clients such as Diageo, Nestle, Henkel, and Arla Foods, Inspira is purpose-driven, and has given back over $1 million to philanthropic organizations such as the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The company’s unique culture thrives by actively supporting the local community with initiatives like the “Stuff the Bus” back-to-school supplies giveaway for underserved kids and the upcoming Four-Legged 4K to support the P.A.W.S. animal shelter of Norwalk.
“We believe that when people are driven by a higher purpose, it lays the foundation for a more successful business,” Snyder explains. “We’ve created an ecosystem fueled by passion and innovation that attracts amazingly talented people who thrive in our community. In turn, we produce extraordinary work for our clients and inspire people to take action.”
