sextant named one of tampa bay business journal's fast 50

The Ybor City-based education marketing firm made the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s “Fast 50” list for the second year in a row thanks to strong, sustained revenue growth.

Sextant Marketing, a full-service digital marketing agency and consultancy dedicated to the service of higher education, has made the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s “Fast 50” list that recognizes the fastest growing businesses in the region. This is the second year in a row that the journal has named Sextant to the list.

The Tampa Bay Business Journal determines which companies make the top 50 list based on the last three years of revenue growth. In those years, Sextant Marketing has increased their number of university partners in the United States to 38 including the University of Virginia, University of Massachusetts, and Kentucky State University and has recently started supporting international universities as well.

Sextant Marketing’s nimble, future-focused approach helps successfully guide partner universities through the world of higher ed marketing, recruitment, and enrollment. Kentucky State University’s enrollment growth is a good example of this success, with the partnership between KSU and Sextant increasing fall freshmen academic enrollment by 90.2% and spring freshmen enrollment by 170% in just one year

Sextant joins 49 other businesses on the journal’s list that represent a variety of industries, including marketing, insurance, healthcare, logistics, engineering, and technology.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for our rapid growth in the dynamic Tampa Bay business community. Our talented leadership and staff have worked hard to achieve our ambitious goals,” said Adrian Marrullier, CEO of Sextant Marketing. “Our diverse team of deeply talented marketing and branding experts and student support specialists bring a wealth of experience that has helped us thrive while providing the best service to our clients.”

Marrullier said Sextant “serves as a bridge between higher education and prospective students” by offering innovative solutions to academic institutions that allow them to attract and enroll the right students. Sextant now supports more than 900 programs and 10,000 students.

Early in 2020 Sextant moved to a 6,000-square-foot facility in Ybor City to accommodate a new call center and larger staff. The Tampa Bay Business Journal will honor all 50 companies selected to the Fast 50 list at a virtual event in November.
