Catapult Ranked One of the Fastest Growing Companies Run by University of Georgia Alumni

Catapult Won an Award for One of the Fastest-Growing Companies at the University of Georgia’s Bulldog 100

Catapult Creative Media Inc. is one of the fastest growing companies run by University of Georgia Alumni, based on the past three years of revenue.

Owners David Maples and Virginia Huling received the award last February at the University of Georgia’s Bulldog 100. At 37th place, Catapult was the only company awarded from Louisiana.

Both owners and their team exceeded the Alumni Association’s criteria and their own personal goals.

How Catapult Launched

David Maples and Virginia Huling began Drift Web Design in Baton Rouge in 2007. They knew that efficient web design strengthens a company and develops loyal customers. The two saw an opportunity in Louisiana’s market to bring functional and beautiful design to the Gulf coast in order to enhance brands and provide a better return on investment.

Drift has created for all industries, from restaurants, to family entertainment, to multimillion dollar businesses. For example, a dot com billionaire, though his or her exact identity remains a closely guarded secret.

While designing award-winning websites and advertisements, they discovered that clients wanted additional services, and that brands need more than websites to keep their customers. David and Virginia gained expertise in those other areas, and started providing more than websites to their clients.

Rebranding Drift to Catapult

With more to offer, the name “Drift Web Design” became more limiting. David and Virginia grew into Catapult Creative Media, and has since successfully launched many brands. The team has since expanded to include designers and professional writers whose goal is to turn online marketing into a solution for your business.

Catapult now provides services as a Google Partner; in ghost blogging, inbound marketing, creating white papers, public relations and social media marketing.

The company has also earned certification with Bing and Microsoft to enhance the portfolio of services and products they provide to their clients.

Catapult continues to develop with modern technologies—including mobile websites and search engine optimization—for companies looking to rebrand or grow.
