Oyova President and Chief Revenue OfficerJon Tsourakis felt the award was emblematic of teamwork and results. “I feel blessed that we did the Fast 50 again. But we can’t credit anyone for it. It all depends on the team and on the dedication The Oyovians are ready to do an exceptional job, ”said Tsourakis.

Merger is at the heart of a thoughtful growth effort
Oyova has already been recognized for its rapid growth among Sunshine State independent businesses this spring. A ranking compiled by Inc. Magazines Inc. listed Oyova among its Inc. 5,000 of Florida’s fastest growing companies. Oyova was ranked 197 on the list.
As we said in our announcement of this honor, we attribute much of our success over the past year to the leadership roster, when McGraw’s Oyova merged with Tsourakis’s Revital Agency.
As McGraw explains, the feasibility of the new merger has defined 2019. “After expanding our reach to St. Petersburg with the merger of Oyova and Revital Agency, we approached 2019 with a ‘grow fast’ mentality, by finding a partner who could fit in perfectly with our mission and add a diverse layer of additional skill sets, ”said McGraw. Specifically, the Jacksonville-based agency is able to gain wider exposure across Florida, since St. Petersburg is nearly 250 miles away and on the opposite coast. “Having won this award again for 2019 validates this merger as a complete success,” McGraw added.
