Apollo Interactive is Named One of Inc. Magazine’s “Fastest Growing Private Companies in the US”

El Segundo, CA – August 14, 2019

Inc. Magazine today ranked Apollo Interactive No. 3,390 on its 38th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This list is the most comprehensive look at an integral segment of the economy – America’s independent entrepreneurs. Apollo joins a prestigious list of businesses that have gone on to become household names including Microsoft, Pandora, LinkedIn, Zillow, Oracle, and Patagonia.

“We are honored to be named one of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in the US,” says Mike Ranshaw, Apollo Interactive Managing Director. “It is a direct result of the hard work each and every member of our team puts in and we are grateful to be recognized for those efforts.”

Apollo Interactive is ranked No. 65 among the Top Advertising & Marketing companies in California on the 2019 list, having achieved 105% growth over the previous three years.

“Our lead generation division has been on a strong trajectory for the past 10 years now, consistently achieving a 3-year growth rate of over 100% since its inception in 2010,” says Todd Anderson, Apollo Interactive Senior Vice President. “Certainly, the collaborative decision to allocate the majority of the company’s resources to its lead generation business has helped propel Apollo Interactive to a new level of sustained excellence.”

Collectively, the companies on this year’s list amassed $237.7 billion in revenue in 2018, with a median three-year growth rate of 157.4 percent and average 2018 revenue of $47.5 million.

This list doesn’t just look at annual revenue; it also takes into consideration the rate at which a company is growing. Apollo Interactive is growing fast and does not plan on slowing down anytime soon.

“Making the list in 2020 is not a goal in and of itself,” says David Bohline, Apollo Interactive Chief Operating Officer. “Advertising programs that deliver measurable and profitable results to our clients are we how we define success. But if we continue on our current trajectory, no one should be surprised if you see Apollo Interactive on the list in 2020.”
