Piano today announced it ranked 180 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America, now in its 25th year.
Piano’s revenue grew 615 percent from 2015 to 2018. Chief executive officer, Trevor Kaufman, credits that to the company’s focus on customer-centric innovation and continued optimization. Piano’s list of customers include leading organizations like CNBC, Business Insider, The Economist and more.

To accomplish that, we’re always looking for new ways to build on our offerings and help our customers thrive — a philosophy that’s fueled our continued growth and has given us the flexibility to stay on top of changing audience needs and evolving market forces.”
“This year marks the 25th anniversary of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, so we are especially pleased to announce and congratulate the 2019 winners,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “Once again, we saw innovation across the board, with software companies continuing their dominance of the top ten. It’s always inspiring to see how the Fast 500 companies are transforming business and the world we live and work in.”
“As technology innovation trends towards ‘everything as a service,’ it's no surprise that software companies dominate the winners list yet again this year,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications, within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “What’s exciting about celebrating 25 years of the Tech Fast 500 is we now have a quarter century of innovation stories to draw and reflect upon. These are the companies that push boundaries, help organizations become more efficient and productive, and ultimately enable businesses to drive growth and revenue. We congratulate all the well-deserving winners.”
