Inc. magazine today ranked Ascedia number 4193 on its 36th 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. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“To once again to be recognized as one of the Inc. 5000 is truly amazing,” said Tom Johnston, President at Ascedia. “For three years now we have seen consistent growth as we strive to expand our reach and grow our clients’ businesses as their stewards in the digital arena. We remain focused on continued improvement, and anticipate that over the next year our substantial efforts in new areas will make an even bigger impact.”
Ascedia’s strong year-over-year growth can be contributed to new client relationships in the manufacturing industry, an ongoing focus on development certifications, and strengthened partnerships with industry-leading technology vendors including Kentico, Widen, and Coveo. By expanding the agency’s digital strategy and research offerings and centering the design and development process on user experience, Ascedia has helped its clients in travel and tourism, healthcare, higher education, and manufacturing increase their inbound leads while telling compelling brand stories that attract and delight their customers.
The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 16), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
