RESEARCH TRIANGLE REGION, N.C.-Netsertive, a marketing technology company empowering brands, national retailers, and local businesses to automate and scale distributed local marketing, today announced it made the 36th annual Inc. 5000. This marks Netsertive’s fifth consecutive appearance in this exclusive ranking, an accomplishment achieved by only seven percent of the tens of thousands of Inc. 5000 honorees.
“Our strong growth over the past five years is proof that enterprise brands and local retailers recognize the mounting challenges they face in executing distributed local marketing at scale,” said Brendan Morrissey, CEO and co-founder of Netsertive. “It has never been more critical for brands to support local retailers while maintaining important brand guidelines in their efforts to reach local buyers.”
The Inc. 5000 recognition comes on the heels of the recent announcement that Netsertive acquired Seattle-based creative management platform Mixpo, further demonstrating the company’s leadership in brand-to-local digital marketing. The combined solution for enterprise brands, publishers and local businesses is a next-generation platform for executing full-funnel, digital marketing campaigns at the local level, seamlessly and at scale.
Eric Schurenberg, president and editor-in-chief of Inc.
noted, “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk-taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.” Brendan Morrissey adds, “We are proud that our vision is resonating so strongly with enterprise brands and local businesses across the country, and look forward to continuing to drive success for our clients.”
In the past four years, Netsertive increased its revenue by 400 percent and expanded its workforce to more than 250 team members. The company experienced continued success with top brands such as Serta, Whirlpool, Electrolux, FCA, Acura and more.
