NYC-based public relations company ranks No. 3846 with a three-year growth percentage of 83%

NEW YORK, August 17, 2021 – FischTank PR, a leading public relations and marketing firm spanning sustainability/cleantech, healthcare/biotech, B2B technologies, and real estate and professional services, today announced it has been named to Inc. Magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. FischTank earned the rank of 3,846 with a three-year growth percentage of 83%. 

The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“FischTank’s growth can be directly attributed to the people and professionals here, past and present, who have contributed time, energy, enthusiasm and a commitment to group and client success,” said Eric Fischgrund, Founder and CEO at FischTank PR. “We are also appreciative of our clients, many of which continue to innovate to advance businesses that promote sustainability, healthcare products and resources, financial literacy, job growth, and social and economic equality – all core themes to FischTank. Today we celebrate, but tomorrow we get back to work to continue adding colleagues to our team and exciting companies to our diverse client roster.”

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

FischTank PR’s business growth, buoyed by a strong 2020 despite the pandemic, was led by its further penetration into and expertise of the technology, sustainability, healthcare and real estate sectors as a trusted and effective PR and marketing partner. The Company has also expanded its team by more than 60% since the start of 2020, adding professionals from around the U.S. as it continues to excel as a flexible remote agency, with a headquarters maintained in lower Manhattan. 

“We’re proud to be named one of the fastest growing businesses in America, and especially moreso after the challenges of the last year that everyone had to endure. FischTank’s ability to excel is a testament to our team and their ability to produce dynamic results that positively impact our clients’ business initiatives,” said Matt Bretzius, Partner and President at FischTank PR. “While this is an exciting achievement, we look toward the future as we believe we are well positioned to continue our growth trajectory moving forward and are excited to see what the FischTank team can accomplish next.”

The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
