RKG (Rimm-Kaufman Group), a recognized leader in online marketing, with services including PPC and SEO has been listed in Deloitte’s 2011 Technology Fast 500, an annual compilation that ranks the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and clean technology companies in North America. In achieving a growth rate of 263%, RKG lands at #320 on the list, joining a select group of companies that are innovating and growing despite a challenging economy.

RKG’s CEO and co-founder, George Michie, sees RKG’s growth as emblematic of its online marketing expertise, its client focus, and its proprietary technologies and processes relating to online marketing data analysis:
“Our growth is a product of a furious pursuit of knowledge and a willingness to share what we learn. We’ve become PPC thought-leaders through curiosity and integrity in how we present our online marketing data. We aren’t interested in pushing any agenda, just trying to learn what data and testing teach us. Pursuit of excellence in PPC, and now SEO, and other areas of online marketing has caused advertisers to seek us out; and our ability to deliver results has kept those clients for the long haul.”
RKG president Adam Audette added, “the RKG team has built its reputation on delivering impressive results. By focusing on clients and by constantly testing its technology and processes, RKG will remain at the vanguard of online marketing.
