Digital Hyve made the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies nationwide, its second consecutive year to receive the award.
Founded in July 2014 by Jake Tanner and Jeff Knauss, Digital Hyve experienced revenue growth of 7,100% in its first five years.
Out of the fastest 5,000 growing companies list, Digital Hyve was ranked 563rd. It was the No. 1 fastest-growing company in Rochester and Syracuse, as well as the 57th fastest marketing and advertising company in America.
“This would not have been possible without the crew of talented individuals we have assembled,” Knauss said. “The fact that we’re able to find talent of this caliber in upstate New York is a testament to the revitalization of our communities. They are so talented and care so much about our clients’ success. Upstate New York is primed to be an area of tech and digital innovation, and we’re proud to be a part of that movement.”
The digital marketing agency includes 52 full-time employees with offices in Rochester and Syracuse. Plans are underway to expand into Buffalo.
“It’s crazy to think back to where we started to where we are now,” Tanner said. “Last year, we were so honored to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 List of America’s fastest-growing companies, we would tell everyone with such pride. We are very honored to be listed amongst some of the best companies in the U.S. for the second year in a row.”
