NEW YORK, March 13, 2020 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Decode Digital is No. 150 on its inaugural Inc. 5000 Series: Texas list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing Texas-based private companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Texas economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent small businesses.
“This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team,” said Kathleen Perley, founder and CEO of Decode Digital. “As marketing in the digital space continues to grow, I look forward to maintaining our legacy for straight-forward communication, transparency, and meaningful results.”
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in Texas. Between 2016 and 2018, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 294 percent and, in 2018 alone, they employed 36,000 people and added $11 billion to the Texas economy. Companies based in the largest metro areas — Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio — brought in the highest revenue overall.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000 Series: Texas, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, metro area, and other criteria, can be found at inc.com/inc5000-series-texas-2020 starting March 13, 2020.
“The companies on this list demonstrate just how much the small-business sector impacts Texas’s economy,” says Inc. editor in chief Scott Omelianuk. “Across every single industry, these businesses have posted revenue and growth rates that are beyond impressive, further proving the tenacity of their founders and CEOs.”
