NEW YORK, August 15, 2023 – Inc. revealed today that Admiral, The Visitor Relationship Management (VRM) Company, was named for a second year in a row to the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The prestigious ranking provides a data-driven look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent, entrepreneurial businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000 — including Admiral being named for the first time in 2022 and in the top half (#2227) of this year’s list. 

Admiral, the Visitor Relationship Management (VRM) company, helps thousands of media publishers worldwide  — including NBCUniversal, ParamountCBS, Hearst, and more — grow visitor relationships and revenue. Admiral’s SaaS VRM platform empowers publishers to personalize their visitor journeys at scale, driving revenue diversification including paid subscriptions, newsletter growth, adblock recovery, privacy consent, and more.

“Our team has worked hard to stack growth on top of growth because the bar keeps rising. Our VRM platform has grown significantly in the past year, from ML-based Surge Journeys to Generating AI that Generates Revenue, to Google-certified Consent Management, to a powerful Visitor Data Activation module launching this quarter,” says Dan Rua, CEO. “This back-to-back recognition by Inc. is shared with the thousands of publishers and networks of publishers who recognize the value of all-in-one visitor engagement and revenue generation at scale.” 

Admiral Makes Inc 5000 2nd Year in a Row

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238 percent. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.

Providing publishers tools to engage each visitor with the right message, at the right time, has helped retention, revenue, and long-term visitor relationships." - Dan Rua, CEO

“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000—with the fast growth that requires—is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.” 

“The accomplishment of our team, repeating back-to-back years as one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of a challenging economic year for media publishers, cannot be overstated,” says Rua. “Providing publishers tools to engage each visitor with the right message, at the right time, has helped retention, revenue, and long-term visitor relationships. Being able to do so at scale, with networks of 100’s of publishers simultaneously, has been exciting.”
