Chicago-based packaging, in-store, promo and digital firm joins exclusive list of fastest-growing private firms in America.


Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine today ranked Launch Creative Marketing number 2646 on its third annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy--America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Consumer electronics maker Vizio, Internet giant GoDaddy, rental car service Zipcar, and beverage maker Honest Tea are among the prominent brands featured on this year's list.


"We are thrilled to be part of the Inc. 5000," said Kevin Keating, Launch president. "We have had several great years in a row, and are very grateful to our clients for allowing us to be their marketing partners. This award also validates the great work of our Flight Crew as they continuously meet and exceed client expectations and deliver award--winning work. But we're not stopping. We are working harder than ever to deliver insights and to marry technology, promotion and in-store marketing to help clients reach the new consumer," he concluded.


"Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate," said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. "That's why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year."
