"Gravity ranked fastest growing full-service marketing firm"
New York, NY (August 20, 2013) – Gravity Media is proud to announce Inc. 500’s ranking – listing them as one of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S., coming in strong at #252. Additionally, the company leads in industry growth as the fastest growing full-service marketing firm, proving to be one of the most innovative and inspiring companies of 2013. From 2009 – 2012, the agency experienced an exponential growth rate of 1,723.5% and reached a lucrative $12.4 million in billings in 2012 – nearly doubling their revenue from 2011 to 2012.
Gravity Media was founded in 2009, with one client, a thirty thousand dollar investment and a five member team. Today, the Gravity team is comprised of over 45 employees, with offices in New York City and Los Angeles. Additionally, earlier this year, Advertising Age ranked Gravity Media as one of the top and fastest growing multicultural advertising agencies in the country.
“It is a great honor for us to be a part of the elite in this country,” stated Yuriy Boykiv, CEO of Gravity Media. “Our growth can be attributed to the deep understanding of the diversity of this nation and the international marketplace – knowing how to bring the general and multicultural markets together optimizing ROI for our clients.”
According to Ersi’s 2012 Diversity Index, more than 50% of the U.S. population is comprised of multicultural ethnicities. Gravity not only works on campaigns targeting the domestic-based Asian, African American, Hispanic, European and Middle Eastern demographic, it also focuses on the traditional “general market” for clients as well, merging these markets together.
“To succeed in these markets, you must understand and live the culture and traditions within them,” adds Mr. Boykiv. “Our staff embodies the diversity that truly represents the U.S. today.”
Gravity’s East and West Coast teams consist of people from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds who speak more than 20 languages. The Gravity team hails from all over the U.S. and the world – having deep understandings of the cultures they target on behalf of their clients and the U.S. marketplace.
Some of Gravity’s work includes South Asian marketing for DISH; Caesars Entertainment’s advertising campaigns for the East Asian markets, U.S. Army’s African American, Asian and Middle Eastern outreach along with fully integrated marketing for NY-based CenterLight Healthcare. Most recently, the agency added Latta Russian Kefir to its client roster.
As the premier media outlet for entrepreneurs and business owners, Inc. Magazine publishes an annual list of the 500 fastest growing private companies in the U.S. It has become one of the most distinguished editorial awards and a celebration of innovation – previous winners include Microsoft, Zappos and Jamba Juice. Companies are ranked according to the percentage growth of their annual revenue over a three-year period, with 2013’s rankings based on 2009 and 2012 revenues.
