Roger West Once Again Named a Finalist for Small Business of the Year in Tampa Bay

July 11, 2022

Roger West Creative & Code, a full-service digital marketing agency, has been announced as a finalist for the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce’s 2022 Small Business of the Year Award for the second year in a row. Hundreds of businesses in the Tampa Bay area are nominated for the prestigious award each year, with a handful of finalists selected by the Chamber in one of four categories based on employee headcount. Roger West is a finalist in the 21-50 employees category.

“It’s very exciting to make the list for the second consecutive year,” said Michael Westafer, CEO and founder of Roger West. “We’ve built an outstanding team that’s dedicated to making our clients look and feel good, so it’s great to see all that quality work be recognized in our hometown.”

Established in 1885, the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce highlights the region’s top small businesses each year to help promote development and innovation across multiple local industries. Once companies are nominated as semi-finalists, they undergo a thorough review that assesses their history and culture as well as business strategy, community engagement, and leadership vision. This year’s list features 15 finalists. The Tampa Bay Chamber will announce winners for each category on September 29.

“Being named as a finalist gives us a tremendous opportunity to tell our story and showcase what sets Roger West apart from the crowd as an agency,” said Jennie Treby, President of Roger West. “It’s also a chance for us to take a closer look at how we run our business and how well our mission and values align with what we’re doing on a day-to-day basis. Those moments of self-reflection are essential for a growing company.”

Roger West celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. The agency has been named one of Tampa Bay’s Best Places to Work four years in a row by the Tampa Bay Business Journal and was ranked #17 on the annual Inc. 5000 Regionals list earlier this year.
