Business is becoming increasingly health-care oriented for Clarity Quest Marketing. The Ann Arbor-based marketing agency has watched 75 percent of its business leads come from companies in the health-care industry, which is up from the 50/50 split from a year ago.
"This year the pendulum completely swung," says Christine Slocumb, president of Clarity Quest Marketing
. "What's going on in the health-care system is really driving a lot of growth in that sector."
That has translated to more growth for Clarity Quest Marketing. The company has recently hired three people, including the recent addition of a former intern. The firm now employs 15 people and an intern with offices in Seattle and Connecticut. The 11-year-old marketing firm has enjoyed 20 percent growth and continued work from the tech and bio-tech sectors to complement its growing health-care workload.
"This is going to be our best year ever in terms of revenue," Slocumb says. "This was our best first quarter ever."
