For the last 10 years, AltaVista's goal has been to support contractors in their marketing efforts and grow their companies confidently. As the Nation’s leading contractor marketing company, we have been meeting and exceeding expectations year after year by taking database and digital marketing off our client’s plates and allowing them to focus on what they do best.
Throughout our journey thus far, we have built strong relationships with our clients to understand their business and provide them with the tools to take them to the next level.
Though we celebrated our 10th anniversary in June 2021, we pride ourselves in the growth that we continue to see year over year. For five consecutive years, AltaVista placed on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. Annually, our company has seen 27% growth on average. This growth is not just new clients. We have continued to expand, hiring 14 new employees in 2021 alone.
Along with more staff comes more needed space. In 2020, we moved our office from our original Glen Burnie location to a more centralized location in the Natty Boh Tower in downtown Baltimore. This decision was not only beneficial for extra space, but by bringing AltaVista's headquarters to downtown Baltimore, we also increased our presence in the Baltimore community, earning us a spot in Baltimore Business Journal's Best Places to Work in 2021. As we continued to grow and expand our offerings, in 2021 we felt it was time to revamp our website, giving current and potential clients a comprehensive overview of all that AltaVista has to offer.
As we continue to plant our roots in Baltimore, we want to make sure that we support the community where we reside. Annually we raise funds for Boys Hope Girls Hope of Baltimore, helping students in our area reach their fullest potential. In addition to contributing funds, we also love volunteering as a team. We take on multiple volunteer projects each year at locations throughout Baltimore City. In November, we visited The Salvation Army and beat their record for boxes of non-perishable foods packed for seniors in our community in one visit!
We are excited to see what the future has in store for AltaVista. We are passionate about helping our current clients grow and look forward to building new relationships with contractors who are passionate about growing their businesses. As we look forward to the next 10 years, we can't wait to continue growing, learning, and giving back to our community!
