For the 10th consecutive year, DRT Strategies is honored on the Inc. 5000, ranking No. 4229 with three-year revenue growth of 73 percent.
NEW YORK – August 26, 2019 – Inc. magazine recently announced that DRT Strategies, Inc. (DRT) (www.drtstrategies.com) is No. 4229 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Honoring the company for an extraordinary 10th consecutive year, Inc. recognized DRT as “one of the fastest growing technology and strategy companies in the country.”
The Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment -- its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Being honored for 10 consecutive years on the Inc. 5000 is an impressive achievement earned through the outstanding work performed by our dedicated DRT teams together with our valued customers,” commented Susan Kidd, CEO at DRT Strategies. “The trusted partnerships that our teams form with our customers are key to our success and growth year-after-year. We appreciate being recognized for our unwavering focus on quality, delivering high-value solutions, and as our brand signifies, Driving Resolution Together with our customers.”
“Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction has made the list more than once. A mere third of a percent of companies have made the list 10 times,” remarked James Ledbetter, Editor in Chief of Inc. Media.
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20th) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists.

The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
