Originally Published by PR Newswire

DETROIT, Aug. 17, 2021 - Digital marketing and data services company, KORTX, has been named to Inc. Magazine's annual Inc. 5000 list, ranking 2,705 nationally and 38 in Michigan. This marks the third consecutive year KORTX has landed a spot on the Inc. 5000, with exponential revenue growth of 150 percent from 2017 to 2020.

"We take pride in our story and our evolution," said Damon Henry, KORTX Founder and CEO. "While we have all faced extremely trying times this past year, we are especially proud of the growth we've fostered across our organization from both a staffing and revenue perspective. Our success is a direct result of our team's commitment to our core offerings – digital advertising, data strategy, and data-inspired creative – as well as the trust and confidence our clients have in us."

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year's list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020's unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, these companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

"The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled," says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. "Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we've lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people."
