First annual GL100 report ranks Elevation the #2 Small Business; 9th Overall; and 22nd on the Movers & Shakers List
In late 2020, Elevation was proud to be recognized by GrowthLab under three separate categories profiled in its first annual GL100 report – a comprehensive listing of the top 100 marketing communications firms serving the federal government. To compile the list of federal marketing communications leaders, GrowthLab mined FY19 prime contract award data, noting which companies saw the biggest growth and offering industry-related contextual commentary. A total of 1,609 companies, ranging in size from small boutiques to global enterprises, held prime contracts in 2019.
Elevation was ranked second on the list of Small Business leaders, a notable rise from its 23rd spot in 2018. Based on a 96% growth rate of its federal portfolio, Elevation was also named a Mover & Shaker, earning the 22nd rung on the Top 25 ladder. And overall, Elevation landed in the Top 10, with the 9th ranked spot on the Top 100 List.
“We are humbled to be recognized on this list of industry leaders,” said Jim Learned, President of Elevation. “We have been serving Federal Government clients for more than 18 years, since our very first contract with the Department of Homeland Security. We are especially proud that after all these years, we have been named a Mover & Shaker. It’s a testament to our ability to bring fresh thinking to government initiatives, to continually stretch ourselves and encourage our clients to do the same so that their communications resonate across an ever-changing landscape.”
According to the GL100 report, the Top 100 List represents a mix of industry bellwethers and young firms on the rise. The full report can be downloaded here.
