Southwest Strategies named one of the region’s fastest growing private companies

SAN DIEGO, CA (August 29, 2016) –– Southwest Strategies, one of California’s leading public affairs and public outreach firms, has been named by the San Diego Business Journal as one of the region’s fastest growing private companies. The publication’s annual list highlights private companies emerging as top organizations in the San Diego region. The announcement comes shortly after the firm’s addition of a Sacramento office, further expanding their presence in California beyond the established San Diego and Fresno offices.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized by the San Diego Business Journal this year as one of the fast growing companies in San Diego.” said Southwest Strategies President Chris Wahl. “Our continued growth and reputation is a direct result of the quality of work we provide for our clients, and we look forward to continuing to provide stellar public affairs services throughout the state.”

Southwest Strategies’ most recent expansion in Sacramento highlights the impact the firm has had in California and the success it has seen as a result of long-standing relationships with clients such as the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), San Diego Padres and Pardee Homes. The firm looks to continue expanding its footprint in San Diego by providing public affairs services for transportation, energy and retail/residential development projects.
