After a year of 43 percent revenue growth in 2016, DEG was named the No. 3,072 fastest-growing company in America on the annual Inc. 5000 list, moving up from No. 3,660 in 2016.
“We earn our client’s trust by constantly producing high-quality and high-performing work that connects with customers within the context of their lives, and that approach will always remain as we continue to grow and evolve.”
– Neal Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder of DEG
The designation marked DEG’s seventh year on the list, placing the agency in exclusive company, as only two percent of Inc. 5000 applicants have reached that milestone.
“Being recognized on the Inc. 5000 for the seventh consecutive year, coupled with the level of growth we experienced over the past year, speaks highly to the passion for excellence shared by both our team and our clients,” said Neal Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder of DEG. “We earn our client’s trust by constantly producing high-quality and high-performing work that connects with customers within the context of their lives, and that approach will always remain as we continue to grow and evolve.”

The Inc. 5000 announcement followed a string of regional growth recognition, as DEG ranked No. 71 on the Ingram’s Magazine Corporate Report 100 list of fastest-growing Kansas City companies—the agency’s 12th appearance—and No. 3 and No. 6 respectively on the Kansas City Business Journal’s annual lists of the top digital marketing firms and top advertising agencies in Kansas City.
