Charlottesville, VA (November 13, 2013) – RKG was the highest-ranking full-service search and digital marketing agency in the 2013 Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ list released today, coming in at #334. An annual ranking of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America, 2013 marks the third consecutive year RKG has made the list.
Award winners were selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2008 to 2012, during which time RKG grew 238%. The 2013 ranking had the highest number of private company winners ever, accounting for nearly 60% of the list. A privately held company, RKG experienced over 80% growth in 2012 and earlier this year was named the fastest-growing search agency by Advertising Age as well as a Top U.S. Job Creator in the Advertising & Marketing Industry in the Inc. Hire Power Awards.
“RKG has experienced phenomenal growth – both in terms of revenue and job creation – in large part because we’re able to help clients win in a digital marketplace by pairing smart people with the proprietary technology we’ve developed over the past 10 years,” said George Gallate, CEO, RKG. “In 2013, we took this a step further with the strategic acquisition of an SEO Analytics and Diagnostics platform. We’re most proud of our growth and investment in developing technology and creating jobs.”
