Here at the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership, nothing makes us prouder than seeing an Alexandria-based business flourish. So when we heard about our neighbor, Silverback Strategies, being named as one of Ad Age’s Best Places to Work, we thought a little recognition was in order.
Silverback Strategies is a digital marketing performance agency based out of Old Town, Alexandria. The company got their start in 2007 when Alexandria native, Neil Welsh, decided to open up shop as a pay-per-click agency in Del Ray. After a few years of expansion and the addition of SEO (search engine optimization) to their skill-set, Silverback Strategies made the move to Old Town. Since then, the agency has grown into a full-service strategic agency and receives consistent recognition from publications like Inc. 5000, The Washingtonian, and The Washington Business Journal as a top place to work.
Offering extensive benefits and a collaborative, transparent environment, it’s no surprise that Silverback Strategies landed a spot on Ad Age’s Best Places to Work list. Even less surprising when you take into consideration Alexandria’s recent growth as a hub for commercial creative firms, who are particularly drawn to the city’s amenities and diverse office space. Old Town itself is often considered one of the top communities for young people to live and work. Overall, Alexandria serves as an ideal location to draw, retain, and satisfy young talent.
We’re proud to be surrounded by such an impressive, and creative workforce and can’t wait to watch Alexandria, and the many businesses within it, continue to grow and thrive.
