Cadence repeated it’s strong growth for the second year in a row with a three-year growth rate of over 800%, and ranked 542nd in Inc. Magazine’s prestigious Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest growing private companies.    

Los Angeles, CA, December 20, 2013 – Cadence Research & Consulting (Cadence), a healthcare marketing firm offering market research, medical communications and strategic consulting services, repeated it’s placement among the nation’s fastest growing private companies.  It’s continued growth is driven by high client satisfaction and retention.

“It’s expensive to acquire new client in the highly competitive services market,” says founder and managing principal Laura Smith Biswas.  “Our belief from the start was that clients appreciate consistent high quality execution of services coupled with a flexible collaborative experience.  Our focus starts with the client experience.  What can we do to make our client’s lives easier?  It is from this perspective that we work.  Our ability to do this has led to high client retention and ultimately fueled our expansion.”

Biswas continues, “Inconsistent quality of deliverables, rigidity, high turnover of project team members and lack of senior level involvement are common problems facing our industry.  Given relatively low switching costs, clients do not and will not put up with this.  Long-term growth can best be generated through consistent high quality execution.  Internally, our incentive structure and culture are aligned to create a great place to work and serve our clients. We are confident about the future as we continue to prove that this market driven model works.”
