Professional Community for Car Dealers, Marketing, Advertising and Sales Leaders
Chapel Hill, N.C. – August 12, 2015 – What do Yelp, Pandora, and Timberland have in common? These three companies—and many more—first gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000, Inc. Magazine's annual ranking of America's fastest growing private companies. 3 Birds Marketing is proud to be included in the 34th annual Inc. 5000, announced today at Inc.com.
"The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident."
3 Birds Marketing provides automobile manufacturers and dealerships with a powerful integrated marketing platform combined with in-house data analysis and client support. Inc. ranked 3 Birds #1848 with 215% revenue growth between the years of 2011 and 2014. Founded in 2009, 3 Birds added 44 jobs over this three-year period.
“When we first formed 3 Birds, we set the goal of making the Inc. 5000 list in our first year of eligibility,” said 3 Birds CEO Kristen Judd. “The fact that we have accomplished this is a testament to the passion, dedication, and tenacity of our team.”
