Leading independent performance marketing firm lands on the annual list after a banner year of growth for the company despite the pandemic
NEW YORK, NY – August 18, 2021 – Tinuiti, the largest independent performance marketing firm across the Triopoly of Google, Facebook, and Amazon, has been named to the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Company list as Tinuiti continues to maintain award-winning culture while expanding rapidly as eCommerce trends continue to surge. Inc. Magazine cites Tinuiti’s three-year revenue growth of 114%. The agency has grown five times in size since 2017 and year-over-year, the company’s workforce has increased by 35% without a single furlough or layoff. While 2020 provided economic obstacles due to COVID-19, Tinuiti was still able to adapt and grow its client’s business. Some of Tinuiti’s 2020 growth highlights include:
- Tinuiti did not lay off or furlough a single employee. In a chaotic year in which a deadly pandemic and a racial justice movement rocked the country, Tinuiti doubled down on its people-first philosophy and cross-trained employees to move into new roles, where necessary.
- Tinuiti achieved an employee retention rate of 84%, which is virtually unheard of in the marketing industry.
- In December 2020, Tinuiti announced a partnership with New Mountain Capital, a leading growth-oriented investment firm with $28 billion in assets under management.
“Growth can be easy, but healthy growth is much harder to do well. I’m proud that we grew in the face of crisis, helped our clients grow, but didn’t do this at the expense of our people,” says Zach Morrison, CEO of Tinuiti. “We put mental health first, adjusted benefits to our virtual world, and had our highest retention rate as a result. That’s the kind of growth to be proud of.”
Tinuiti has won several prestigious industry awards and accolades for both culture and performance, including recognition as #1 on Ad Age’s Best Places to Work for two consecutive years, Inc. Magazine’s 2021 Annual List Of Best Workplaces and taking home 11 Stevie Business Awards—including the Grand Stevie Award for Most Honored Marketing Agency.
The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
