Red Clay named to the inaugural Bulldog 100

Red Clay Interactive is among the businesses selected for the inaugural class of the Bulldog 100: Fastest Growing Bulldog Businesses. Sponsored by the University of Georgia Alumni Association, the Bulldog 100 is a program that will determine and award the 100 fastest growing businesses that are owned or operated by UGA Alumni, each year. Rankings are based on compounded annual growth rate of revenues for the past three years.

Lance Compton, president of Red Clay and a 1995 graduate of the University, was presented with the award at the Bulldog 100 Celebration that occurred in Atlanta at the InterContinental Buckhead on January 30, 2010. Red Clay was listed as the 34th fastest growing company on the list and the highest ranking interactive marketing agency.

“It is an incredible honor to be recognized by your alma mater,” said Compton after the presentation. “I feel this is truly a testament to the hard work and creativity our team has put in over the past ten years,” he said. “UGA provided me with some incredible opportunities, and I’m proud to be included on a list with such diverse and fantastic companies.”

Red Clay Interactive, founded in 2000, is digital marketing agency located 50 miles from Athens in Gainesville, Ga. In addition to the Bulldog 100, the company was recently listed on the Inc. 5000 List as the fourth fastest growing advertising and marketing agency in the state and the 27th such firm in the Southeast. Utilizing the latest technology and time-tested marketing principles, Red Clay has worked with hundreds of clients across the country and industry spectrum to increase their businesses online.

“Red Clay Interactive should be congratulated for being among the first selection of Bulldog 100 companies,” said Deborah Dietzler, Executive Director of the UGA Alumni Association. “With more than 400 nominees representing businesses from throughout the United States, it is a true achievement to be selected. The UGA Alumni Association is proud to honor Red Clay for its accomplishments.”
