2002: The start of SyncShow (then called Idea Engine, Inc.) can be traced back to a simple observation Founder & CEO Chris Peer had more than a decade and a half ago: Buyers have changed the way they live, work, shop and buy, but many B2B companies haven’t adapted.
This observation inspired Chris to build a marketing agency that sought to change and educate clients while injecting quality, great customer service
Chris grew the company single-handedly in its early years by continuing to establish long-term client partnerships through his knowledge of marketing and branding and by also attracting marketing experts and creatives with diversified skill sets. This growing team continued to build and refine marketing strategies, helping clients deliver prospects and customers experiences that were relevant, helpful and highly personalized.
2004: Idea Engine outgrew its office in Chris’s attic and moved into its first official office in Lakewood, Ohio. The 900-square-foot basement office provided a home for Idea Engine’s continued growth and success.
2006: Idea Engine won its first NEO Success Award in recognition of its status as one of Northeast Ohio’s fastest-growing organizations. Later in 2006, Idea Engine merged with its sister company, SyncShow, a company that, at the time, focused primarily on providing software solutions to clients. The merger allowed Idea Engine and SyncShow to provide clients the latest in marketing, technology
2007–2010: In late 2007, Idea Engine and SyncShow moved into a new office in Rocky River, Ohio. Continued success resulted in Idea Engine winning three additional NEO Success Awards, in 2008, 2009 and 2010 respectively.
2012: Idea Engine officially changed its name to SyncShow in an effort to more clearly communicate its full suite of marketing and technology solutions. SyncShow became a certified HubSpot partner in 2012, giving us access to the latest sales and marketing software.
2015: SyncShow rose through the ranks of HubSpot Partners to join the top 2% of Platinum Partners globally. This partnership furthered SyncShow’s ability to provide clients with the latest technology and tools to support all of their marketing and sales efforts.
2016: SyncShow created a board of advisors to help strategically guide the organization.
2018: Inc. Magazine recognized SyncShow as being one of 2018's 5,000 fastest-growing companies nationwide and determined our culture made SyncShow worthy of a spot on the magazine's 2018 Best Workplaces List.
