based on three-year revenue growth

INDIANAPOLIS (Aug 16, 2017) – Element Three, an Indianapolis-based full-service strategic marketing agency, announces it ranks on Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing, private companies. This is Element Three’s fourth consecutive year on the list, putting the agency within an elite group of companies to earn the accomplishment that is based on cumulative revenue growth over the past three years. Element Three ranks 2794 on the 2017 Inc. 5000 list.

Element Three President Tiffany Sauder said, “It is an incredible achievement to be listed among the nation’s fastest-growing companies yet again. For Element Three, this honor is a direct reflection of our commitment to push ourselves to get better every day. This industry is evolving and changing so quickly. It is our team’s commitment to reach forward into the future and not to rest on past achievements that keeps us great. Each day, we come to work ready to help our clients grow and achieve more than they thought possible through marketing. We are thankful for the clients we work with and the trust they put in us to write their bold story in the marketplace. And we can’t wait to show up tomorrow to do even better. The fact that we are growing right alongside our clients is a humbling, exciting accomplishment.”

“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”

The Inc. 5000 ranking is the latest accolade to be bestowed on the agency because of impressive recent growth. In the past two years, there have been multiple investments made in talent and technology, including the hiring of the agency’s first Vice Presidents of Digital Marketing and Technology, the addition of a new in-house video production studio, the expansion of its paid digital department, and a major investment in DOMO business intelligence reporting for several of its clients.
