REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Oct. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Pierry Inc., an industry-leading marketing software integration and solutions company, today announced it has been ranked #6 Fastest Growing Company of 2016 by the San Francisco Business Times on the 25th annual Fastest Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area list, an exclusive ranking of the region’s fastest growing private companies; one of the most important segments of the local economy. The winners and rankings were unveiled at an awards gala on October 13, 2016 at the Four Seasons San Francisco. Ranked #21 in 2015, this year’s ranking reflects Pierry’s accelerating momentum over the past 12 months.

“Pierry is pleased to be included among some of the Bay Area’s most prestigious companies in the 2016 edition of Fastest Growing Companies by the San Francisco Business Times,” said Josh Pierry, Founder and CEO of Pierry Inc. “Thanks to some thoughtful growth initiatives over the past year and some excellent work by our dedicated team, Pierry continues to add manpower and functional expertise that enable us to partner with marquee brands across a variety of sectors and deliver the best possible results for our clients.”

The companies on this year’s list ranked between 58.9 percent and 2,786.5 percent growth. Companies are ranked by percentage of revenue growth increase between 2013 and 2015. They were required to have at least $200,000 in revenue in 2013, and be privately held and headquartered in the counties covered by the Business Times — San Francisco, Alameda, San Mateo, Contra Costa & Marin, plus Palo Alto.

As evidenced by the ranking, 2016 was a year of remarkable growth for Pierry. They kicked off the New Year with the acquisition of C.TRAC Inc., an interactive agency specializing in digital and direct mail marketing, which doubled their workforce and client base. A few days later, Pierry announced a strategic investment from MDC Partners and Salesforce Ventures, which enabled the company to scale its Marketing as a Service™ (or MaaS) approach to clients globally. In addition to headquarters in Redwood City, Pierry now has offices in Boulder, Colorado; Albany, New York; Ruston, Louisiana; Cleveland, Ohio; and Kyoto, Japan. Earlier this year Pierry was ranked #538 in a national list of the “2016 Fastest Growing Companies” by Inc. Magazine.

Today Pierry counts more than 100 employees and serves a wide range of clients, from start-ups to multi-billion dollar brands across all sectors. Their proprietary MaaS™ (Marketing as a Service) approach describes the unique way Pierry helps clients design, develop and execute marketing solutions that dramatically improve efficiency and impact, and increase ROI. The company is a Salesforce Marketing Cloud Platinum Partner, and winner of several Salesforce implementation awards.

“Our region is renowned as a hub for innovation and as an ecosystem that fosters growth companies,” said Mary Huss, Publisher of the San Francisco Business Times. “Pierry, along with all of the companies on the list deserve special recognition because they fuel our regional economy.”
