Leading growth at a company is a challenging responsibility. You are usually responsible for keeping the lights on through sales, marketing, public relations, and special projects. Growing companies are healthy companies. As Chief Growth Officer a common way I talk about the importance of constant, intelligent growth is:
Growth is your only possible option. If you aren’t growing, you are just liquidating slowly.
This year I’ve been excited to announce that RevUnit was named one of the fastest growing privately-held companies in the U.S. In fact, on a list of over 5,000 of the fastest growing companies, RevUnit was ranked #584 on the Inc 5000. For a services company I’m honored and proud of the people and team that created that kind of growth.
I know I have a responsibility for leading growth — but the outcome of fast growth in a company comes from the hard work of every individual in making and keeping customers happy. At RevUnit, that means building amazing products by using user experience design and the best in software development and engineering. Our team at RevUnit is amazing and they’ve made the growth possible.
We’ve also got an incredible leadership team. A team who not only work hard, but work smart. We work together exceptionally well and it shows.
As Chief Growth Officer it’s an honor to have a title so closing aligned with an award that means so much to all of us. I believe in growth (read my manifesto). I’m grateful to be able to be apart of leading growth at RevUnit.
RevUnit’s official press release:
RevUnit has been named to the “Inc. 5000” list of the fastest-growing companies in America, a key indicator of the product development studio’s emerging presence as a global leader in workplace transformation technology.
RevUnit was ranked as the fourth fastest-growing company in Arkansas, with revenue growth of 775 percent over the last three years. RevUnit was No. 584 on the overall list of the top U.S. private companies based on revenue growth.
RevUnit specializes in products that increase productivity, learning communication and engagement within large companies. RevUnit was founded in 2012.
“Our products are making a difference in the work life of employees of Fortune 1000 companies around the world, and I am grateful to lead the talented team of developers and designers creating these products,” said Joe Saumweber, CEO of RevUnit. “We are committed to a smart but aggressive growth strategy that ensures we deliver the best software and services to our clients, while continuing to build user-friendly technology for other companies across all sectors.”
RevUnit is poised to land on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list as well, after acquiring Las Vegas-based Teamvvork earlier this year. RevUnit tripled its Las Vegas footprint with the acquisition and added national and international clients to a list that already included companies like Walmart, Purina and AutoZone.
Earlier this year, RevUnit moved its Bentonville headquarters to the former Farmers Exchange building in downtown Bentonville, nearly quadrupling its physical space in northwest Arkansas.
