With Triple Digit Year-Over-Year Revenue Growth, ÜberStrategist Debuts at #2661 Among America’s Fastest-Growing Privately-Held Companies, #232 in Advertising & Marketing, and #76 Among North Carolina Companies
ÜberStrategist, a leading North American public relations and full-service marketing agency focused on global video game, entertainment, and technology clients, is thrilled to announce that, for the first time, the company appears on Inc.’s annual Inc. 5000 list. The Inc. 5000 represents the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing privately owned companies in America. ÜberStrategist debuts at number 2661 overall, number 232 among Advertising & Marketing firms, number 76 among North Carolina-based companies, and number 22 in the greater Raleigh area.
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 many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. Now, ÜberStrategist joins the ranks at a pivotal moment for the company: its most successful year on record, representing key global clients that include Assemble Entertainment, Atari, Bungie, Ferrari Esports, Gameforge, Level Infinite (Tencent), Lilith Games, MAINGEAR, Modiphius Entertainment, Nightdive Entertainment, The Sandbox, and many others.
The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful but have demonstrated resilience and growth despite supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of COVID-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 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.”“Delivering consistently great work, serving as a trusted value-add partner, and assembling a passionate, highly skilled team are a few of the ingredients that have led to our success,” added Mario R. Kroll, president and founder of ÜberStrategist, Inc. “We are humbled by this recognition from Inc. and could not be prouder of the work we do, the culture we’ve established, and the clients we’re honored to serve. Having started ÜberStrategist from the ground up on a shoe-string budget in early 2014, it’s thrilling to see how far we’ve come. I thank our team, our clients, and our partners, without whom this accomplishment would not have been possible.”
Relying almost exclusively on word-of-mouth referrals, ÜberStrategist has enjoyed nearly triple-digit year-over-year growth since its founding in early 2014. 2021 continued that trajectory with further refinement of the company’s approach to public relations in an ever-changing landscape, along with the launch of dedicated influencer marketing and community management practices. In 2022, these practice areas, along with targeted growth in events and trade show activity, increased key technology and marketing investments, along with additional strategic hires, will position ÜberStrategist as a truly global force in video game, entertainment, and technology marketing.
