Scottsdale, Ariz. - Sept. 23, 2014) - Pyxl, a leading full-service digital marketing firm recently named to the Inc. 5000 list for fastest growing privately-held companies, is going to make its new home at SkySong.
The company is relocating from another location on N. Scottsdale Road and will move to its expanded, 2,500 square feet location at SkySong in December.
Pyxl designs and develops custom websites, web applications and mobile apps that balance technology and design, while driving and monetizing web traffic. Additionally, Pyxl’s communication services include customized inbound marketing strategy development and integrated digital marketing and public relations campaigns. With offices in Boulder, Colo., Knoxville, Tenn. and Scottsdale, Ariz., Pyxl has gained a wide range of clients across the industries of healthcare, technology, education and retail. In August, Pyxl was named to the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing companies for the second year in a row. The list is published annually by Inc. Magazine and ranks America’s fastest growing, privately-owned companies.
With the leasing agreement, Pyxl’s presence at SkySong is a perfect brand fit for a digital firm recognized for its innovation.
“A company dedicated to growth and to results-driven digital marketing makes a lot of sense for the culture at SkySong,” said Sharon Harper, president and CEO of Plaza Companies, the developer of the project. “They will feel right at home with SkySong’s shared focus on innovation and technology, and ultimately, growth.”
Brian Winter, CEO of Pyxl, said, “We are excited to move to SkySong, a home of innovators, forward-thinkers and entrepreneurs alike. We look forward to our continued growth while at SkySong and finding more collaborative relationships and opportunities in our own community.”
Pyxl is the latest addition to the growing SkySong project, which recently saw the completion of the SkySong Apartments and SkySong 3, the third office building at the property. With SkySong 3 achieving 90 percent occupancy well ahead of schedule, pre-leasing has accelerated on SkySong 4, with construction on the new building scheduled to begin in the next few months.
