Continuing its streak that has run since 2010, DEG earned placement on Inc. Magazine’s 2018 edition of the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in the country.
“To be included on this list is always an honor, and an increase in our ranking validates that we are continuing to perform even as we grow larger.”
—Neal Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder of DEG
The full-service digital agency came in at No. 3,051, which is the highest ranking for DEG since 2014 when it placed No. 2,259. DEG has experienced a growth rate of 132 percent over the past three years, while increasing its revenue by nearly $30 million and adding 132 full-time associates during that span.
“To be included on this list is always an honor, and an increase in our ranking validates that we are continuing to perform even as we grow larger,” said Neal Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder of DEG. “However, what stands out to me is that we’ve maintained our placement for nearly a decade. This level of growth is incredibly difficult to sustain and is a credit to the commitment of every associate at DEG and our valued client partners.”
Along with being one of just two percent of companies that apply to make its eighth year on the list, DEG was the 10th fastest-growing Kansas company (fourth in revenue) on the list, and the 19th fastest-growing in the Kansas City metro (fourth in revenue).
The national recognition came just days after the agency received similar accolades in its headquarters hometown of Kansas City. DEG was named the No. 33 fastest-growing company and the third largest digital marketing agency in Kansas City by the Kansas City Business Journal, as well as No. 73 on the Corporate Report 100 list of Kansas City’s fastest-growing companies according to Ingram’s Magazine.
