Golden Spiral Becomes Ratio — a Growth Marketing Consultancy Designed to Help Companies Accelerating the Transformation of Healthcare

After 12 years, the agency is leveraging experience and relationships to launch a new Healthcare Advisory Board to deliver mentor-backed and data-driven marketing solutions to technology companies.

NASHVILLE — Golden Spiral announced today that it has transformed into a new kind of marketing company, and that change starts with its new name: Ratio. Ratio is designed to accelerate the growth of healthcare technology enterprises by unifying brand development, strategic positioning, and refined digital marketing, all finely tuned to bridge the gap between complex healthcare solutions and discerning, knowledgeable buyers.

The new logo and name maintain the original core concept, harkening to the Golden Ratio or the Fibonacci Sequence, a mathematical phenomenon that manifests in beautiful ways throughout the natural world. For us, this idea illustrates the intersection of art and science at the core of our services and methodologies. Our new name and logo simplify and strengthen this association, introducing a brand system ready to resonate in the healthcare market while shining a spotlight on the soul of our organization: our clients.

“As I consider the landscape and challenges our healthcare system stands to face over the next decade, there’s a clear mandate for significant innovation,” John Farkas, CEO of Ratio, says. “Ground-breaking technology has to play a major role, and the team at Ratio is eager to partner with determined, courageous companies that have discovered and developed that kind of tech and is ready to apply it.”

The Ratio Healthcare Advisory Board brings together a select group of highly accomplished healthcare experts who will be available to support Ratio clients by offering invaluable insights, strategic guidance and thought leadership.

“Healthcare is undergoing a radical transformation, and the change has accelerated since the pandemic,” Eric Thrailkill says, “A significant component of my personal mission is to apply what I have learned through my career to assist leading healthcare companies in collaborating with innovators and entrepreneurs. These healthtech and tech-enabled service companies are addressing the major challenges in the industry – including access to care and acute workforce optimization. The team at Ratio is connecting advanced technologies to the industry, and I’m excited to join this quest to value as they support the true innovators in healthcare.”
