We’re happy to announce today that Rocket has once again made it on the annual Inc. 5000 list, which ranks the country’s fastest-growing private companies. This year, we’re ranked number 687.
Last year was our first time making the list, and it was a big deal. We cracked the list for the first time at number 156, which was impressive but made sense given we were coming off of a huge three year growth period. To celebrate, Rocket co-founder Dave Witting waxed all kinds of eloquent about what making the list meant. And you know what? He deserved to. Rocket is not your typical agency, and yet we’ve continued to defy the odds and grow like hell. Validation from a prestigious company like Inc. is really special to us, and it will never get old.
We’re really proud to crack the list again. While 2020 hasn’t exactly been the easiest year (the phrase “complete shit show” only scratches the surface), we’ve tried to stay the course and keep our clients and our employees as happy as possible. We’ve hired a bunch of great new employees and we’ve continued to grow the business both independently and as part of Dept, our parent company based in Europe.
And despite 2020 being one for the books, we’ve managed to snag a few other pieces of recognition, including Built in Boston’s Best Places to Work, the Boston Business Journal’s Fast 50 and Inc’s Best Workplaces list.
So a big thank you to the team at Inc. for the recognition, and an even bigger thank you to our team and our clients for helping us continue to grow like a rocket.
[I’m sorry, I had to. I’ll see myself out.]
