Chapel Hill-based provider of digital marketing platform, data analysis, and client support services named to 2016 Inc. 5000

Chapel Hill, N.C. – August 26, 2016  – For the second year in a row, 3 Birds Marketing has been named to the Inc. 5000, Inc. Magazine’s annual ranking of America’s fastest growing private companies. This list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. 3 Birds is proud to share this honor with companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, and many other well-known names who first gained national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

3 Birds Marketing provides automobile manufacturers and dealerships with a powerful integrated marketing and analytics platform, incorporating proprietary predictive models and customer value segmentation to enable more effective and more transparent marketing communication. Inc. ranked 3 Birds #3450 with 94% revenue growth between the years of 2012 and 2015.

“After making the 2015 Inc. 5000 list in our first year of eligibility, we had our sights set on a repeat performance,” said 3 Birds CEO Kristen Judd. “Our ongoing growth is a testament to the passion, dedication, and tenacity of our team.”
