Last month Acceleration Partners was honored to be named one of the Boston Business Journal’s 2014 Pacesetters.
The 2014 Pacesetters are comprised of the seventy privately held businesses in the Bay State that experienced the highest revenue growth between 2010 and 2013. According to Chris McIntosh, publisher of the BBJ, “This year’s list is our strongest and most diverse to date and was drawn from a record number of submissions vying for recognition as one of the fastest-growing private businesses in the state.”
At the ceremony for honorees on Thursday, we were amazed to learn that we were actually number three on that list. AP Founder and Managing Director Robert Glazer was on hand to accept the award and spoke briefly about Acceleration Partners and its phenomenal growth, saying, “I’m proud that our growth is attributed to staying true to our values.”
Founded in 2007, AP has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. Between 2010 and 2013 the company grew 1,438.23% as it has transitioned from an agency that worked primarily with new companies just getting off the ground to one that works with some of the largest and most well-established brands in the world.
As Bob Glazer put it in a recent interview with the BBJ, “We decided to move upstream and work with companies whose product was solid, and help them focus on acquiring new customers. At the end of the day, consumer companies need to figure out how to get customers to their businesses.” Subscribers to the BBJ can read more of Bob’s interview here.
Many thanks to the Boston Business Journal for a wonderful event and thank you to the whole AP team and all of our clients for making this achievement possible.
