The custom-marketing agency ranked No. 3037 on the list that represents the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—independent small businesses.

This recognition validates the tremendous efforts and innovation delivered by our team,” Clyde shared. “In my view, the unique investment we make in giving first is directly connected to our outstanding business performance.”

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 list been extremely competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

“Our commitment to new emerging marketing technology, developing culture focused brands from the inside-out and enriching the customer journey both in the B2B and B2C space has been an exciting journey,” continued Clyde.
