COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) - Rauxa Direct, an innovative direct marketing agency headquartered in Orange County, Calif., today announced that the company has been named to the 2009 Orange County Business Journal List of Top 100 Fast Growing Private Companies. With a two-year average sales growth of 62.3 percent, Rauxa Direct ranks number 44 on this year's list, jumping considerably from its number 66 spot on the 2008 List and number 92 in 2007.

Even with the severe economic downturn of the past year, Rauxa has seen an upswing in the use of its direct marketing services. With a scientific approach to direct marketing, Rauxa has continued to drive customer acquisition and retention efforts on behalf of A-list companies. New and existing clients in industries such as telecommunications, technology, healthcare, and finance, have propelled Rauxa's solid growth; many employ the agency's Rauxa Roja division to target the increasingly important Hispanic market and also utilize the agency's vast menu of Interactive services in their direct marketing campaigns.

"Times are tough but Rauxa clients recognize that our data-driven marketing approach is more valuable now than ever," stated Jill Gwaltney, CEO, Rauxa Direct. "As one of the few truly independent firms in the country specializing in all disciplines of direct marketing, we've not only been able to grow our business significantly, we've been instrumental in growing the businesses of our clients."

A reception and awards event held on October 15, 2009 honored the top privately-held, Orange County-based companies demonstrating a significant two-year average revenue growth rate. Companies ranked one through 100 are featured in the October 19th issue of the Orange County Business Journal.
