Scottsdale company among rapidly growing businesses

Colling Media

Scottsdale-based tra-digital marketing firm Colling Media has ranked among the fastest growing private companies in the U.S., landing them a spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 List.

The list represents emerging corporations in the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. With nearly 200 percent growth over the last three years, and 2014 revenue topping $5.4 million, Colling Media ranked #2044 in the nation, according to a press release.

“Our agency has been fortunate to be at the forefront of the evolution of tra-digital marketing and the implementation of new tools and technologies including the creation of proprietary software that helps our clients better track the efficiency of their marketing investments,” stated Brian Colling, founder and CEO of Colling Media, in the release. “We’ve assembled a highly specialized team of marketing and media experts that together offer an unprecedented level of knowledge and expertise in the digital and traditional marketing realms.”

The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of “Inc.” hits newsstands this week and is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, with the companies on this list alone generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years, the release stated.

“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” stated Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg, in the release. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”

Colling Media nearly doubled in size this year with the addition of eight new staff members, dozens of marquee clients and more than doubling the square footage of their office space for it’s new Scottsdale headquarters to be a fully wired digital and traditional agency space fully built around collaboration. From there, the Colling Media team generates more than $500 million in revenue for its clients each year, the release stated.
