by | Aug 17, 2022

Crowe PR, a national public relations and digital marketing agency specializing in consumer goods, healthcare technology and hospitality brands, announced that it was named to Inc. Magazine’s esteemed Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing, privately-owned companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia and other household names gained their first national exposure as Inc. 5000 honorees. Ranked at No. 4,303, Crowe PR is continuing to solidify its role as an agency to watch in the evolving public relations and marketing industry.

Crowe PR’s recent growth has been fueled by integrated marketing expertise, an analytical, forward-looking approach and diversified client portfolio. The company’s focus on elevating proven public relations tactics, such as editorial coverage and thought leadership campaigns, with social media, influencer marketing and content creation contributed to its growth across the U.S. and parts of Europe. In the past year, the company scaled its client roster by 150%, partnering with innovative publicly held and private technology, consumer goods and hospitality brands, and increased its staff presence in key markets, such as New York, California, Tennessee and Washington D.C.

“We are always looking ahead at PR and marketing trends to ensure our clients are continuously top of mind with key audiences in a compelling way and that our work truly contributes to their growth and relevance,” said Anna Crowe, CEO of Crowe PR. “I’m so proud of our talented team, our core values-driven culture and the expertise and analytical mindset we bring the table every day. This accomplishment – especially among a dynamic few years – is a testament to our team’s hard work, leadership, authenticity and creative and strategic pivots.”

In addition to its No. 4,303 ranking, Crowe PR ranked No. 610 in California and No. 77 in San Diego. The firm was also named No. 420 in the Advertising and Marketing category.

The 2022 Inc. 5000 includes companies like Crowe PR that have shown success and resilience amid the challenges of supply chain burdens, labor shortages and the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144%, and together, these companies added nearly 70,000 jobs over the past three years.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.
