Admiral Named One of Fastest Growing Companies in the U.S.

Admiral in Inc 5000 listStrong Adoption by Top Media Publishers Yields Top 1000 Ranking in Inc. 5000 and Top 100 in Multiple Categories


FLORIDA, August 16, 2022 (PRWeb)– Today, Inc. revealed that Admiral is No. 981 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

Admiral also ranked as Top 100 (75) of Marketing and Advertising companies, Top 100 (90) from the state of Florida, and the #1 fastest growing company from its hometown of Gainesville, FL.

 The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. 

Admiral, the Visitor Relationship Management (VRM) company, helps thousands of media publishers worldwide  — including NBCUniversal, ViacomCBS, 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 business model is 100% performance-based, so we only grow by helping media publishers grow their revenue" - Dan Rua, CEO

“Our business model is 100% performance-based, so we only grow by helping media publishers grow their revenue,” said Dan Rua, CEO. “Because of that, we want to thank and congratulate all of our publishers for earning this ranking together.”

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful but have also demonstrated resilience amid industry disruption and volatility, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years. 

We analyzed the full Inc 5000 list in the context of markets and product categories, and how each company ranked against peers,  Admiral came in as the top-ranked solution for multiple categories:

  • #1 Paywall and Subscription platform
  • #1 Adblock Revenue Recovery solution
  • #1 SaaS Marketing Automation company
  • #1 CRM for the Media Publishing industry

No other private US companies were ranked higher in those market solutions.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.” 

“Our mission of ‘Saving the free internet, one publisher at a time’ grows one step closer with each new adoption of our VRM platform,” says Rua. “Providing publishers tools to engage each visitor with the right message, at the right time, has helped retention, revenue, and client success. Admiral has built a mission-driven business by proving relationships do matter when it comes to funding Internet content that educates, entertains, and empowers future generations.”
