DEG has maintained its status as one of the fastest-growing companies in America by earning a spot on the 2016 Inc. 5000 list for the sixth year in a row. The full-service digital agency ranked No. 3,660 on the annual list, while coming in at No. 33 among Kansas City metro companies.
“That we have remained on this prestigious list for more than a half decade is not only a testament to the talent and expertise of our amazing team, but also to the relationships we have built with our clients over the years,” said Neal Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder of DEG. “We work hard to know our clients’ businesses well and understand their customers better than anyone, and then apply that knowledge in the ever-changing digital space to create real results.”
The Inc. 5000 list is based on revenue growth percentage over the past three fiscal years. From 2012-2015, DEG’s revenue increased by 85 percent.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” said Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
The Inc. inclusion proceeded multiple recognitions for DEG within Kansas City as a both a rapidly growing company and digital marketing firm. DEG placed No. 73 in Ingram’s Magazine’s Corporate Report 100 list of the fastest-growing companies in Kansas City (appearing on the list for the 11th time) and was also No. 3 in the Kansas City Business Journal’s annual list of the top digital marketing firms in the region.
