Southfield MI, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine revealed that GAT Marketing is No. 2033 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within America’s most dynamic business segment – its independent small businesses. 

“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.”

GAT’s focus is client driven and goal centric working to develop disruptive strategies that will enhance brand recognition and deliver the highest returns for the client.

“Last year when Inc. listed us in the top 200 of fastest growing companies we were ecstatic. When we received our regional listing this year in the top 50 we were blown away. To achieve back to back national listings based on year over year growth, during a pandemic, I am in awe,” stated Charles Anderson, CEO of GAT Marketing. “GAT’s success has always been, and will continue to be based on it’s community and team. Each person at GAT has given this company and I more than I could ever dream of. The results for our clients speak for themselves. They continue to increase their spend, and are constantly referring us to more companies, letting us grow organically on the back of our success. We are truly blessed and humbled to be listed this year alongside so many amazing business people who have built their companies during great turmoil and struggle. Congratulations to all the companies listed, and we look forward to working with more companies to help them join the Inc. 5000 listings in the years to come.”

With the global COVID-19 pandemic being at the forefront of the news, the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 have had to be highly competitive, resilient, and flexible within their markets to overcome the challenges that arrived from the global pandemic. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
