With a Two-Year Revenue Growth of 301 Percent, GAT Marketing Ranks No. 36 on Inc. Magazine’s List of the Midwest’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Bingham Farms MI, March 16, 2021Inc. magazine today revealed that GAT Marketing is No. 36 on its 2021 Inc. 5000 Regionals: Midwest list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Midwest economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. 

“Making the INC 5000 list in 2020 was an incredible honor.” stated Charles Anderson CEO of GAT Marketing. “To come back and do it again in 2021 after such a rollercoaster of a year is mind blowing. The evolving digital landscape has only made being competitive as a firearms-based company harder, in part because increased restrictions have been seen on virtually every major platform. These restrictions have driven us to find new outlets for our clients, further strengthening our position as the leading-edge digital agency for the industry. We are thankful for the trust placed in us by our clients and the opportunity to work with some of the best brands on the planet.”

The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the 12 Midwest states. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 199 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 43,000 people and added more than $11 billion to the Midwest economy. GAT Marketing contributed to one of the areas bringing in the highest revenue overall.

“This list proves the power of companies in Midwest states no matter the industry,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “The impressive revenues and growth rates prove the insight and diligence of CEOs and that these businesses are here to stay.”
