Inc. Magazine today announced that AUDIENCEX is No. 416 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment: its independent mid-sized businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000 list.
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“Being named to the Inc. 5000 speaks volumes about the dedication and hard work of our team, the relationships we maintain, and the value we provide to our clients,” said Reeve Benaron, CEO and Co-Founder at AUDIENCEX. ”Remaining focused on the vision of the company will continue to be a driving force in how we operate, and we couldn’t be more excited about what’s next.”
AUDIENCEX announced 300% growth earlier this year, fueled by the launch of tdX, its programmatic trading desk that works with 18 leading platforms to power cross-channel campaigns for marketers and agencies. AUDIENCEX works to streamline the complex world of digital marketing for marketers and agencies, through a unified and transparent approach to marketing campaigns, designed to reach target audiences with precision and efficiency.
“Our ability to offer a truly integrated suite of omnichannel marketing services across programmatic, search and social has achieved enormous traction with performance marketers and agencies, and our company is continuing to flourish because of this singular strategy,” said Jason Wulfsohn, COO & Co-Founder at AUDIENCEX.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
How the 2019 Inc. 5000 Companies Were Selected
