Inc. magazine has included Dallas’ Imaginuity at No. 2124 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique view of the most successful independent small businesses like Imaginuity®, one of the largest independent marketing service providers in the Southwest, which realized three-year revenue growth of 189 percent to qualify.
“This recognition validates the hard work and innovation that has fueled our growth as we’ve aimed to deliver the transformative results our clients have come to expect in this ever-changing connected world,” said Taylor Calise, chief executive officer of Imaginuity. “Combining imaginative thinking and marketing technology has been essential to our success.”
Not only have the companies of the 2019 Inc. 5000 been competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole also shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent, which Imaginuity outpaced. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
