29 Aug Force Marketing Earns Spot on Inc. 5000 List for Eighth Consecutive Year
Atlanta-based automotive marketing company Force Marketing earned the No. 3923 national spot on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. for 2016. This is the eighth year in a row that the company has earned this distinct honor.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA— Force Marketing is proud to announce that it was recently named to the Inc. magazine Inc. 5000 list, which compiles the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. This is the 35th year that the magazine has published its prestigious list. 2016 marks Force Marketing’s eighth consecutive year of inclusion, an achievement only 167 of the 5000 businesses on this year’s list can claim.
The company, which specializes in data- and technology-driven automotive marketing services for dealer groups and OEMs throughout North America, earned the No. 3923 spot nationally.
“The entire Force Marketing team has worked hard to build the company, the culture, and the client base that we have today,” said John Fitzpatrick, CEO and President of Force Marketing. “It’s a tremendous honor to be one of the few companies named to the Inc. 5000 list for eight years in a row. Our continued growth is sustained by an expert team and a commitment to delivering services that not only get results for our clients, but help to evolve the way that auto-shopping happens today.”
Each year, the Inc. 5000 team ranks companies spanning all industries according to their three-year percentage revenue growth. For this year’s list, revenue numbers from 2012 through 2015 were considered. During the three-year period examined for the 2016 list, Force Marketing experienced a 75 percent growth in revenue.
Much of that growth was due to the company’s work toward tying together offline and online shopping behavior to create a model of attribution for the automotive industry. In early 2016, the Force Marketing team introduced Helix, a revolutionary business intelligence and ad technology software that allows dealers to segment consumers based on their shopping behavior in order to identify a more personalized and targeted path-to-purchase. The company plans to further evolve this technology through key data integration partners and enhanced automated marketing products.
Headquartered in Atlanta, Force Marketing ranked No. 182 among the Georgia companies included on the 2016 Inc. 5000 list. Atlanta was the 7th fastest-growing metro area in the country, according to the list, and Georgia ranked as the 9th fastest-growing state in the U.S.
Force Marketing has a history of earning accolades for its rapid growth. Earlier this year, Fitzpatrick and the automotive marketing company earned a spot on the Gator 100 list of the fastest-growing private businesses helmed by alumni of the University of Florida for the second consecutive year, and previously, the firm was recognized by the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Pacesetter Awards, which honor the fastest-growing businesses in Atlanta, for three years in a row.
