The agency, led by President and Chief Executive Officer, Matthew Schecter, is extremely proud of this distinction, which measures the company's growth over the last 3 years specifically. "This recognition is a testament to the hard work that the team at Lockwood puts in for our customers on a daily basis. To be able to grow an organization 218% over the last 3 years is no small feat and requires a scalable infrastructure, which is critical to Lockwood's success. I am so proud of all that we have accomplished in such a short time and excited about what we still have left to do!" said Schecter.

"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 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.
