WillowTree, Inc. Named for the Seventh Year in a Row in the Inc. 5000


WillowTree, Inc, a top mobile and digital product agency, has been named for the seventh consecutive year as one of the fastest-growing independent companies in the U.S.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (PRWEB) August 15, 2018

Inc. magazine today revealed that WillowTree, Inc. is No. 1850 on its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy's most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

This is the seventh consecutive year WillowTree has made the Inc. 5000 list. Fewer than 4% of companies have marked the level of consistent growth required to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 seven times.

"It's an honor to be included in the official Inc. 5000 list for the seventh year in a row," said Tobias Dengel, CEO of WillowTree. "We couldn't be more proud of the work we've produced in partnership with clients like Time Warner, Regal, Wyndham Hotels, and 21st Century Fox who share our excitement and vision for delivering world-class customer experiences. Much of our growth is owed to the culture of innovation our team members have cultivated at WillowTree since the beginning. This passion for emerging technologies on the part of our developers, designers, and strategists has continually positioned us to help our clients be at the forefront of the most exciting new channels for digital customer engagement, like voice and AR/VR."

Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

"If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it's unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice," says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. "The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn't change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
