Knoxville, Tenn. – March 1, 2012 — Pyxl, a digital marketing firm headquartered in Knoxville, Tenn., has been named one of 75 Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winners today by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The awards program honors companies that demonstrate excellent business practices in several areas, including strategy, employee development, community involvement and customer service.
“The recipients of this year’s Blue Ribbon Award excelled in business amid great uncertainty and thrived despite difficult economic times,” said Thomas J. Donohue, U.S. Chamber president and CEO. “More important than profits, their successes have provided much-needed jobs and hope to the people in their communities.”

Additionally, Pyxl launched Kyoo, a social media aggregation tool that has since been featured by national publications such as CNN.com, HLN TV, Mashable, The Next Web and PRDaily.
“We’re honored to be selected as one of the U.S. Chamber’s Blue Ribbon Small Business Award winners,” said Josh Phillips, president of Pyxl. “The last few years have been a period of significant growth for Pyxl and all of our employees, and it’s great to be recognized by the U.S. Chamber for our growth and success.”
