Inc. magazine today revealed that C&R is No. 4,796 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“As we head into our 10th year in business, the Inc. 5000 accolade is a tremendous milestone for our agency and we are honored to be recognized as one of the most successful small businesses in America,” said C&R Co-Founder Pieter Ruig.

Adding to Ruig’s sentiments, fellow Co-Founder Spencer Castillo said, “We’ve spent the last decade building a portfolio of prestigious brand partners we’re proud to represent. We wouldn’t be where we are today without these partnerships and are thankful for each and every opportunity that has made C&R what it is today.”

Editor in Chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
