ARLINGTON, VA, June 21, 2016 – The American Marketing Association (AMA) named Fors Marsh Group, LLC (FMG)—a Washington, DC-area, research and consulting firm—as a top 50 market research firm in the 2016 AMA Gold Top 50 Report. This is the second year FMG made the list. Due to FMG’s 23% growth in 2015, the firm moved up six spots to No. 44.

"Since we opened our doors in 2002, our focus has been to be a partner to our clients as they seek to make smart decisions through applied research," said Dr. Sean Marsh, chief executive officer of FMG. "Fifteen years later, our focus hasn’t changed; our growth has been made possible by an exceptionally qualified and passionate staff and loyal clients who understand the value that evidence based decision making brings to their business. We continuously invest back into our business; for example, building on-site labs in which we can conduct focus groups, behavioral economic experiments, and digital user experience studies with the latest technology in the field"

The AMA Top 50 Gold Report has long been the industry standard for annually documenting patterns in the global business of marketing research and identifying the major players driving its growth. Indicative of the evolving research sector, there were 15 Top 50 companies in 2015 that experienced double-digit increases in revenue, and FMG was one of seven that saw an increase of over 20% revenue growth. To achieve 23% growth in 2015, FMG worked to expand its portfolio with existing clients, while adding the Army National Guard, Anthem, Council of State Governments, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Facebook to its growing client list.

The AMA Gold Top 50 Report appears annually in the June issue of Marketing News, a publication of the American Marketing Association. The report is the industry’s benchmark for market research organizations nationwide. To view the report visit, 2016 AMA Gold Top 50.
