Los Angeles, CA, November 9, 2017 — Gimbal today announced it was named number 34 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies in North America. Gimbal grew 5,285% percent from 2013 to 2016.
Gimbal’s CEO and founder, Rob Emrich, credits a shifting market preference toward accurate, 1st-party location data and the maturation of the programmatic media ecosystem with the company’s revenue growth.
“For a long time, the data that powered marketing and media buying lived in different places and was managed by different teams,” commented Emrich. “Gimbal is unlocking physical world data for both sides to power smarter decision-making for both brands and agencies.”
“This sets Gimbal up for continued success in the future,” he continued. “As brands become more and more wary of targeting pre-bundled segments of aggregated devices, our always-on location data provides an alternative with the precision and scale marketers need to execute relevant campaigns.”
“The Deloitte 2017 North America Technology Fast 500 winners underscore the impact of technological innovation and world-class customer service in driving growth, in a fiercely competitive environment,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media, and telecommunications leader. “These companies are on the cutting edge and are transforming the way we do business. We extend our sincere congratulations to all the winners for achieving remarkable growth while delivering new services and experiences for their customers.”
“Emerging growth companies are powering innovation in the broader economy. The growth rates delivered by the companies on this year’s North America Technology Fast 500 ranking are a bright spot for the capital markets and a strong indicator that the emerging growth technology sector will continue to deliver a strong return on investment,” said Heather Gates, national managing director of Deloitte & Touche LLP’s emerging growth company practice. “Deloitte is dedicated to supporting the best and brightest companies of the future in the emerging growth company sector. We are proud to acknowledge the significant accomplishments of this year’s Fast 500 winners.”
