Needham, Mass. (PRWEB) August 22, 2014
Acceleration Partners, a performance marketing and digital strategy firm focused on profitable online customer acquisition for top retail brands, has been named to Inc. magazine's prestigious list of the 500 fastest-growing private companies in the country for a second year in a row — and has moved up in the annual ranking by nearly 100 places, from #359 in 2013 to #260 this year.
In addition to being among only 95 companies named to both the 2013 and 2014 Inc. 500 lists, Acceleration Partners is one of only 10 companies nationwide that moved up 99 places or more. The company's 1,768 percent three-year growth rate also makes it the thirty-third fastest growing private company nationwide in the advertising and marketing industry.
"We are humbled to be included in a list that counts national brands like Under Armour, GoPro, Patagonia and Pandora among its alumni,” said Robert Glazer, founder of Acceleration Partners, “and doubly humbled to be included two years in a row. Of course, we owe it all to our incredible clients and employees. Our clients know where they want to take their business and really appreciate what we do to help them get there.”
Founded in 2007, Acceleration Partners specializes in the development and ongoing management of profitable, new customer acquisition programs such as affiliate program management, search engine optimization (SEO), website architecture and other performance marketing initiatives. Clients include Warby Parker, ModCloth, Reebok, Shutterfly, Target, Tea Collection, Tiny Prints, zulily and many other top consumer brands. Acceleration Partners has also been awarded the Affiliate Summit Pinnacle Award for Top Affiliate Program and was recently given the third spot in Boston Business Journal's 2014 Pacesetter list of the fastest growing private companies in Massachusetts.
"Being named to Inc. 500 two years in a row not only acknowledges the fast growth of our own company, but also of the performance marketing industry as a whole," said Glazer.
A multi-billion dollar industry, performance marketing is a form of advertising wherein advertisers pay marketing partners on a results basis. Acceleration Partners is committed to remaining a market leader and demanding continued transparency across the industry and among these relationships.
Companies are chosen for the Inc. list through revenue growth comparison from 2011 to 2013. To qualify for the list, a company must be based in the United States, privately owned and independent. Revenues must have been at least $100,000 in 2010 and no less than $2,000,000 in 2013.
