Third time’s a charm for DGC and the Inc. 500|5000

Growth in a business is always something to be excited about, but when that growth is recognized, it makes the long hours and continuous hard work all the more rewarding. As a testament to that hard work, we’re happy to announce that DiGennaro Communications made its way onto the 2013 Inc. 500|5000 list for the third year in a row.

Compiled by Inc. magazine, the Inc. 500|5000 list ranks the nation’s fastest growing private companies, spanning all industries, states and revenue brackets. It’s a big list, but every year we get a little closer to the top.

Getting on the list is no easy feat and just having a bumper year does not necessarily secure you a spot. Inc. looks at a set of criteria that includes sustained revenue growth over a three year period and, of course, you must be a U.S.-based, privately owned entity. Solid growth really is that defining factor that sees a business play an essential role in the broader economy.

Other notable list makers include top marketing and advertising agencies like TargetCast, Pandora, Droga5, as well as McAfee Institute and the number one winner, Fuhu, which makes kid-friendly tablets.

Our founder, Samantha DiGennaro, remarked, “For the third year running, we’ve proudly been part of the Inc. 500|5000 list, which is a testament to our smart, savvy and hardworking team, and unbelievable clients who allow us to experiment and push the boundaries in PR.”

DGC has seen consistent year-over-year growth since its founding in 2006, and we will celebrate our eighth anniversary in January 2014. Over the past year we have added new top notch clients including Pandora, Microsoft, Omnicom’s DDB, Ringling Bros. Circus, South Carolina Department of Park, Recreation and Tourism.

We even added another rung to our international reach, forging a strategic partnership with Sydney, Australia-based Access PR. In 2012, we formalized a partnership with London-based Eulogy!, which has helped solidify our shared global client accounts, and taken employees across the pond on both ends through our exchange program.

Samantha credits DGC’s spot on the list to the hard work we do every day. “My name may be on the door, but this honor is shared with each and every one of DGC’s 35 team members,” she said. “I look forward to the continued growth of the agency.”

The full list, searchable by industry, size and location, can be found at Inc. 500|5000 list.

DiGennaro Communications makes the Inc. 5000 list for second year running.

In a month where economic growth, job creation and national business policy are being hotly debated, our Founder, CEO and Fearless Leader, Samantha DiGennaro, attended the Inc. 500|5000 Conference in Phoenix, Arizona to recognize and celebrate the important contribution privately held small businesses provide to the economy – and most importantly to accept an award for DiGennaro Communications making the 2012 Inc. 5000 list for the second consecutive year.

And we’re in good company; fellow advertising and marketing classmates include TargetCast, Zambezi and TRIS3CT, while nationwide we sat alongside admirable brands such as Yelp, apparel company Life Is Good and non-profit organization charity: water.

Fellow honorees (from l-r) Lisa Hufford, Founder of Seattle-based Simplicity Consulting, Patrick, COO of Travisa, Sam DiGennaro, Founder, CEO of DiGennaro Communications, Carrie Morris, GM of Simplicity, Tom Henell, CMO, Naplia.

Inc. magazine’s exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies is in its sixth year and is comprised of America’s fastest growers spanning all industries, states and revenue brackets.

So how does a business land on this prestigious list? Just having a bumper year does not necessarily secure you a spot — Inc. looks at a set of criteria that includes sustained revenue growth over a three year period and, of course, you must be a U.S.-based, privately owned entity. Solid growth really is that defining factor that sees a business play an essential role in the broader economy.

“We would not be recognized today without the hard work and dedication of our amazing team and wonderful clients,” said Sam DiGennaro, CEO and Founder of DiGennaro Communications. “I look forward to the continued growth of the agency.”
