Updated: Mar 17
San Ramon, Calif., March 16, 2021– Creative Digital Agency has been ranked No. 51 on the Inc. 5000 2021 list, ranking of the fastest-growing California-based private companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the California economy.
“Creative Digital Agency is thrilled to be ranked on this prestigious list for 2021,” says Jin Kim, Founder and CEO of CDA. “It's been an incredible ride, growing so rapidly.”
Since launching in 2017, CDA has seen exponential revenue growth every year, working as a one-stop-shop for clients including Merck Pharmaceuticals, Airbnb, and the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board. They were also ranked as a top agency on Mobile Marketing Association's Global Business Impact Index.
"We owe our success to our 'audience-first' approach," says Kim. "We've been able to reliably help brands cross generational and cultural gaps in their strategy, their media mix, and their creative approach - and we've done it in a way that drives business objectives in a meaningful way."
"This list proves the power of companies in California no matter the industry," says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. "The impressive revenues and growth rates prove the insight and diligence of CEOs and that these businesses are here to stay."
The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in California. Between 2017 and 2019, these 250 private companies had an average growth rate of 535 percent and, in 2019 alone, they employed more than 40,000 people and added nearly $7 billion to the California economy. Companies based in the largest metro areas—Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and San Diego—brought in the highest revenue overall.
