More space was needed as Straight Northâ€™s services and client base continue to grow.
Online PR News – 29-October-2012 – Downers Grove, IL – Straight North, a leading Internet marketing agency in the Chicago area, relocated on October 25, 2012. The new office â€“ 1001 W. 31st Street, Suite 100, Downers Grove, IL 60515 â€“ is twice the size of its previous location in Oak Brook, IL.
David Duerr, Straight North Chairman & CEO, said the move came as the result of the agencyâ€™s expanding business. â€śDespite an up-and-down economy, we have been able to add new services, develop more projects with existing clients, and take on a number of significant new clients. As our staff grew, we finally ran out of space.â€ť
Looking forward, the agency is optimistic. â€śWe feel very comfortable in doubling our square footage,â€ť Duerr said. â€śInternet marketing becomes more complex all the time, and agencies need outside expertise to conduct effective marketing programs. The middle market, where we concentrate, is underserved, and we see the demand for our services continuing to grow rapidly.â€ť
Straight Northâ€™s expansion has come through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth. In 2009, the agency completed the acquisition and merger of Whoast, Inc., a search engine marketing firm in Chicago, IL. In 2010, it acquired Word Sell, Inc., a content marketing and social media firm in St. Charles, IL.
