NEW YORK AND RESTON, VA, August 13, 2015 (Marketwired) – For the fourth year in a row, Inc. magazine ranked Resonate, the data and technology company, on its annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.

“Inc’s recognition of our consistent high-growth over the past several years is a testament to the continued value we provide our marketing clients,” commented Bryan Gernert, CEO at Resonate. “As digital marketers seek deeper levels of understanding of their audience and better ways to engage consumers, it’s clear that Resonate has accelerated as an indispensable partner.“

Ranked in the top-half of the list at #2162, Resonate has experienced impressive growth, including a 243% increase in analytics revenue and 391% increase in analytics adoption across existing media relationships. Resonate is poised to serve as a critical data-driven marketing partner for brand advertisers and agencies, political campaigns and advocacy organizations.

“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
