CINCINNATI, OH, August 23, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Inc. magazine has released its 2013 Inc. 5000 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies and, for the second consecutive year, DeanHouston, Inc. is among this elite group, ranking No. 2989, a 4.4 percent increase over last year's ranking of 3120. ---
The Cincinnati-based, full-service, business-to-business marketing communications firm posted a three-year revenue growth of 113 percent through 2012, placing the company No. 28 among the 55 Cincinnati metro-area companies on this year's list.
In addition to DeanHouston, several other emerging, fast-track brands are among this year's list, including Living Social, Bojangles and KT Tape. DeanHouston also now shares a pedigree with many other high-profile companies and recent alumni, including Zappos, Intuit, Under Armour and Pandora, to name a few.
Since 2009, DeanHouston has more than tripled its number of employees, from 15 to 47. The company has hired 22 full-time employees in the last 18 months. Already in the first seven months of 2013, DeanHouston has added another 10 full-time employees, representing year-over-year growth of 29 percent. It is now the 13th largest advertising-marketing-branding agency in Cincinnati.
In late January 2013, DeanHouston moved its Cincinnati headquarters to the Baldwin Center, 625 Eden Park Drive, and simultaneously opened an office in Orland Park, IL, about 25 miles southwest of Chicago, to accommodate its continuing growth and expansion. Only a month previously, the company also opened an office in Grand Terrace, CA, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles.
In March, the company was named to the Cincinnati Business Courier's Fast 55, which ranks the fastest-growing private companies in Greater Cincinnati.
In his letter to Inc. 5000 honorees, Eric Schurenberg, Inc.'s editor-in-chief, said that making this year's list "was harder to get into than ever in its history."
"We're very proud to have earned a spot once again on the list of America's fastest growing private companies," said Dale Dean, President and CEO of DeanHouston. "We wish to thank our employees, our supplier-partners, and, of course, our many valued customers, all of whom represent world-class companies that are leaders in their respective industries. Without the continued support, confidence and commitment of all three, this type of accomplishment is not possible."
