Byte Interactive Announces Record Growth; Strategic Digital Marketing Firm Grows Revenues, Client Base, Employees.

SOUTH NORWALK, Conn. -- Byte Interactive, a strategic digital marketing agency, announced today that 2005 represents the most significant period of growth in the firm's eight-year history. Revenue in 2005 has grown approximately 80 percent over 2004; and the number of employees has jumped more than 25 percent since January.

Mike LeBeau, CEO of Byte Interactive, said: "This has been a groundbreaking year for Byte Interactive. The team's ability to secure business from a number of world-leading consumer-products companies only further establishes Byte Interactive as a major player in the industry."

In 2005, Byte Interactive landed three new high-profile new accounts, including BIC, leading supplier of office products; K2 Inc., consumer products company with a portfolio of leading sporting goods brands; and Vitasoy, leading soy foods and beverage company.

"We selected Byte Interactive because the team has demonstrated superior expertise and innovative thinking," said Tim Koletsos, Director, Stationery Marketing, BIC. "Byte is a true marketing partner with a clear understanding of BIC's business needs and our customers' needs - a balance that is critical to the success of our strategic communications initiatives."

In addition to revenue growth from new accounts, Byte Interactive also secured additional business within its existing client base, launching new project work with Nestle Waters and Coty, which included the Web component for the fragrance launches of Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely and Shania Twain's Shania by Stetson.
