Piano Named to 2021 Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
Piano recognized for 470% three-year growth after expanding global footprint and product capabilities to accelerate digital audience engagement
Piano, a global analytics and activation platform, has once again been recognized in the annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. The recognition follows a period of record growth for the organization, during which Piano built its global client base, expanded operations into the Asia-Pacific region and acquired France-based analytics leader AT Internet. The acquisition represented the first time a world-class digital analytics solution has been combined with journey orchestration and personalized commerce in order to transform data into customer experiences.
“Piano’s continued growth allows us to better serve our clients across the globe and make a tangible positive impact on how they interact with their customers digitally,” said Trevor Kaufman, CEO, Piano. “To still be in the Inc. 5000 four years after our first entry makes us so proud — it’s a testament to the energy and commitment our employees bring to their roles every day.”
The 2021 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2017 and 2020. During this period, Piano’s revenue grew 470%, proving the company’s remarkable gains in a $77M addressable market. Piano serves nearly 1,000 customers across six continents.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
Piano continues to be recognized for its rapid expansion and innovation by major players in the digital industry and the business world at large, including Red Herring, World Economic Forum and Deloitte. So far in 2021, Piano has been named Data Management Solution of the Year by Data Breakthrough, MarTech Startup of the Year by MarTech Breakthrough and Organization of the Year by the Business Intelligence Group’s Sales and Marketing Technology Awards “The Sammys.” The organization has also been a finalist in the 2021 Digiday and INMA awards programs.
