JACKSONVILLE BEACH and ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (PRWEB) March 18, 2021
Oyova has again been honored as one of the fastest-growing private companies in Florida. The app development and marketing agency was recently recognized, for the second year straight, on the Florida Regional Inc. 5000. Being highlighted on this list of companies means that Oyova is a regional growth leader. The technology services firm improved 32 spots, having landed at #197 on the 2020 Inc. 5000 Florida Regional.
"I can't lie, I wanted to win this award, and being named #165 on this prestigious list is an amazing achievement for our entire team,” said Oyova Chief Executive Officer David McGraw. “Winning back-to-back years while navigating the lockdowns of 2020 means a lot to all of us.”
How companies make the list
To be considered for the list, companies have to meet the following core parameters:
- Be US-based, for-profit, and privately held;
- Have made $1 million or more of revenue in 2019;
- Have made $100,000 or more of revenue in 2017; and
- Have started producing revenue no later than March 31, 2017.
According to Inc. itself, the Inc. 5000 list honors regional companies that have been innovative and shown the ability to create jobs and grow.
Last year was challenging for everyone
Oyova knew that 2020 would test and further prove its approach. In the end, the agency’s sustained growth reflected its performance for clients, which drives its growth.
As Inc. indicates, the Inc. 5000 Regionals is a local award but brings prestige and enhanced visibility — resulting in national connections and growth opportunities. In essence, the recognition for growth leads to further growth.
Oyova President and Chief Revenue Officer Jon Tsourakis echoed McGraw’s sentiments about the pandemic. “I'm grateful for this award, more so than last year's,” said Tsourakis. “Increasing revenue and growing a company during a pandemic, recession, and all the other obstacles 2020 threw at us is no easy feat.”
Client comments as important as broader recognition
The exposure provided by the Inc. 5000 Regionals list is substantial. Plus, increased performance on the list indicates improved market leadership.
McGraw views the financial success of Oyova as demonstrative of client successes. “Getting the recognition for all the hard work our team puts in for our clients is nice,” noted McGraw, “but the real reward is the client feedback we hear on sites such as Clutch.co.”
Tsourakis believes client-centricity was the deciding factor for Oyova’s year. He reemphasized his appreciation of the 2021 honor given the times: “Clients trusted us to deliver through the most challenging year in memory,” he said, “and our team didn't let them down.”
