Last week, Deloitte released its 2015 Technology Fast 500, a list of the fastest-growing companies in North America, and Signal ranked 11th in a very competitive field. Signal was also named the #1 marketing technology company and #4 software company on the list; Signal is the highest-ranked Chicago-based company.
Deloitte has recognized the fastest-growing public and private technology companies in North America for more than 20 years. Like Signal, the companies named to the Tech Fast 500 are on the cutting edge, transforming the way business is done. Deloitte selects honorees by tracking revenue growth over a three-year period; Signal made the list by posting revenue growth of 5,241% from 2011 to 2014. Signal has exhibited strong momentum since its founding, which includes triple-digit revenue growth every year since inception, and more than 15,000 clients across the U.S., APAC, EMEA, and South America.
Signal is recognized on the list this year alongside highly innovative companies including wearable-technology maker FitBit (#14), social media platform Sprout Social (#21), electric vehicle company Tesla Motors (#59), and social media juggernaut Twitter (#68). In the past, the list has recognized leading companies such as Yelp, LinkedIn, Zynga, and Sirius XM.
“Signal is honored to be recognized as one of the fastest-growing tech companies,” said Signal CEO Mike Sands. “Our company is growing quickly because we are solving a critical, global need for marketers today: the need to engage with their customers in the right place, with the right message, in real time, and at scale. This recognition on the Technology Fast 500 list underscores our success in helping brands and publishers achieve true, people-based marketing.”
This recognition from Deloitte will join the wall of numerous awards Signal has won in the last few months, including earning #51 on the Inc. 5000 (and the #3 fastest-growing software company) and the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award, presented to our three co-founders, Mike Sands, Marc Kiven, and Eric Lunt.
Congratulations to all the companies on the Deloitte 2015 Technology Fast 500 on their accomplishments! We’re excited to see what 2016 has in store.
