A dental marketing agency led by Youngstown native Graig Presti has been named one of the fastest-growing businesses in America by Inc. Magazine for the third year in a row.

The son of Joe and Lori Presti, Graig recalled that a job interview for an internet marketing company based in Chicago started the entrepreneurial ball rolling. After accepting the position, he has never looked back.

Presti thought, "I could do this. I took the risk and founded LocalSearchForDentists.com just a few months before my wedding."

Founded in 2010, www.LocalSearchForDentists.com - Presti's new agency - began cultivating and marketing deliverables that cater to the dental industry. Presti works with his bother, Derek, who serves as vice president for LSFD. This site has helped thousands of dentists achieve record-breaking new patient numbers.

Presti continues to move forward with his company and create more opportunities for himself and other entrepreneurs. Shortly after relocating to Austin, Presti purchased a parallel company named FindMyCompany.com and started branching out to other businesses he thought could benefit from his system.

Presti has also been working with Launch NY, a venture development organization whose mission is to support and invest in high-growth and high-impact companies. Launch NY works with entrepreneurs from 27 counties of upstate New York. Working together, Launch NY and FindMyCompany.com have raised awareness for the unique "entrepreneurial ecosystem" that is found in upstate New York.

"I have been closely following the renaissance that Buffalo is experiencing, and enjoy having the opportunity to help businesses grow. I am certain that online marketing is here to stay," Presti said.
