Velir Ranks No. 2851 on the 2014 Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies List
Inc. Magazine Unveils its 33rd Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies and Velir ranks as a top digital agency
Velir, a full-service digital agency, has been ranked on The Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in the US for the third time in as many years. With this new listing Velir has surpassed its 2013 ranking, making it one of the fastest-growing and most impactful digital agencies in the country.
The Inc. 5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at a critical segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
The evolution of its services from hardcore engineering to strategic consulting and experience design along with the acquisition of brand name clients in new verticals have led to Velir’s explosive growth. This is evidenced by the doubling of its revenue in just two years and the addition of more than 57 new employees over the last three – figures that have collectively earned Velir the 2851 spot on the list.
"Our talented staff and loyal clients have led to this stunning growth. We are honored and humbled by this recognition and look forward to continuing to climb the list in 2015!"— Mark Gregor, CEO
The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com, is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000’ s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 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.
"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15- 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show “The Profit” Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.
