EXPAND's VP, Amanda Stein recognized on the Portland Business Journal's 40 Under 40.

PORTLAND, Ore., July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- EXPAND, a local social media and digital marketing company reached new heights in June, ranking number 8 out of 100 of the Portland Business Journal's 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies. With the company growing over 314% over the past two years, EXPAND's three point system along with its mission to provide profitable, data-driven results for it's clients has made CEO and Founder, Jimmy Clarke's passion to connect brands with their customers online a reality.

"To me, the award is validation that we do great work for our clients," says Clarke. "The only reason we got this award is because of our clients and our team. While my job might have been to bring the clients in, they stay because of the results they get by working with us."

While Clarke started EXPAND after a successful career in the radio industry, he came from humble beginnings. "When I arrived in Portland in 1989 from the UK to play soccer for the University of Portland I knew I had been given an opportunity of a lifetime. Twenty-five years later, and now a citizen of this country, not only do I get to raise my family in this beautiful state, but I have had the opportunity to start my own business and give back by creating jobs for the local economy... the true American Dream."

A contributor to the growth has been attracting some of the best talent in the area. Among the team of A-players at EXPAND is Amanda Stein, who was also recognized in June as one of the Portland Business Journal's 40 Under 40 class of 2018. One of only 19 women represented and in a pool of over 400 nominations, Stein says she was "Honored to be included in such a remarkable group of local professionals, especially in such a competitive field."

Stein serves as the Vice President and General Manager of EXPAND and oversees the social media content creation, vision, as well as the execution team and plays an intricate role in business development. "There's always a foundation of respect with Amanda. She's brought in people who work hard and focus on results," Clarke says. "I've never had to worry about anything on the social media or organic marketing side since Amanda has joined our team, and she serves our clients at the highest level." In addition to her role at XPND Amanda serves on the Forbes Agency Council as a contributor, holds a position on the West Linn Economic Development Committee, and helps manage the social media for the PTA where two of her four children attend school.

"The dedication to results, proactivity and culture at EXPAND has made the last two and a half years some of the most professionally challenging and rewarding years of my life. We have nowhere to go but up and I cannot wait to announce the next evolution for Expand." Amanda Stein
