CHICAGO (PRWEB) August 15, 2018

Strike Social, a leading global digital advertising firm, ranks No. 165 on Inc. Magazine's annual list of 500 fastest-growing private companies. With a revenue growth of 2,483.6 percent in the past 5 years, this is the second year in a row the company has achieved recognition on the Inc. 500.

Since 1982, the Inc. 500 recognizes America's fastest-growing private companies. Strike Social is a past honoree for the Inc. 500, ranking No. 17 overall and No. 1 in all Illinois sectors last year. Of the tens of thousands of companies who apply, only one in three make the list twice.

"It's an honor to be listed in the Inc. 500 for the second time," said Patrick McKenna, Strike Social's Chairman and Co-Founder. "Since only one-third of companies make the list more than once, the fact that we're ranked so high the second time shows that we're retaining our clients and consistently delivering value with our suite of products built using data science and artificial intelligence."

Since its start in 2013, Strike Social has expanded into a global workforce in 16 major markets with headquarters in Chicago and offices in Kraków and Manila. The company manages thousands of social media campaigns every day for more than 500 major brands. Its team of media buyers, engineers and data scientists are able to accomplish round the clock paid media management and campaign success with the help of AI.

Strike Social continues to develop platforms and tools for media buyers and brands to achieve the best in social media advertising.
