DEG, Linked by Isobar maintained its nine-year streak by appearing on the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the country’s fastest-growing private companies, which was based on 2016-2018 revenue growth. Only 0.5 percent of all companies that have applied to the list have appeared nine times.
“For us to then continue moving up the rankings is a testament to the work and passion every associate and partner provides to make each day better than the last.”
—Neal Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder, DEG, Linked by Isobar
Not only did the full-service agency make the list, its placement at No. 2,752 was DEG’s highest since 2014 and a 299-spot jump from last year’s ranking of No. 3,051. DEG recorded a revenue growth rate of 138 percent over the past three years, while adding nearly 150 associates around the country to its team.
“The fact that we’ve made the Inc. 5000 list for so many years certainly stands out to me,” said Neal Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder of DEG. “The difficulty is showcased in how few companies have earned a spot on the list nine times, let alone in consecutive years. And for us to then continue moving up the rankings is a testament to the work and passion every associate and partner provides to make each day better than the last.”
DEG is the No. 19 fastest-growing company in Kansas City on the 2019 list—out of 39 included—while being the longest-tenured organization from the metro in terms of years on the list.
Last month, DEG was also named to the Ingram’s Magazine’s annual Corporate Report 100, coming in at No. 59 of the 100 fastest-growing companies in Kansas City.
