[Baton Rouge, LA, 9/16/21] Catapult Creative Media Inc. has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies run by LSU Alumni in the 2021 LSU 100. This esteemed award is based on Catapult’s compounded annual growth rate from the past three years.
Award eligibility is based on the four criteria listed on the LSU 100 website. Catapult proudly fulfills these criteria and upholds the values of the LSU 100.
“We are incredibly humbled to be honored in the LSU 100,” says co-owner and CEO of Catapult, David Maples. “Despite a rough past year, Catapult remained an example of a forward-thinking company that puts its clients first.”
When Catapult began in 2007, it operated as Drift Web Design and aimed to build efficient websites for local Baton Rouge and Gulf Coast region businesses. As co-founders Maples and Virginia Huling started working with businesses of all industries and sizes, they recognized their clients needed additional services outside of professional and user-friendly business websites. Maples and Huling transformed Drift into Catapult and focused on providing a wide range of digital marketing services to help businesses grow and expand.
Catapult has helped thousands of companies successfully launch their brands in the past fourteen years. During the pandemic, the agency continued to grow, help clients stay afloat with special outreach, and kept all their team members employed – even hiring additional people. In 2020, Catapult also donated their time and resources to building a website for the non-profit animal shelter, Capital Area Animal Welfare Society (CAAWS), during one of their roughest years.
Catapult’s current catalog of services includes web design and development, online review management software, PPC management, logo design, and social media marketing. Catapult has achieved several awards and accolades, including a previous LSU 100 award and Business Report’s 2020 Best Places to Work in Baton Rouge.
“We couldn’t have done this without our outstanding team,” Maples added. “We’re looking forward to what the future has to offer and continuing to grow Catapult into an innovative agency that’s wholly committed to our clients.”
