BALTIMORE, MD, August 19, 2022 – This week, Inc. revealed that Response Labs is No. 4590 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. Within Inc.’s subcategories, Response Labs ranks 55 in its hometown of Baltimore, 119 among Maryland companies, and 460 in the Advertising and Marketing industry.
The Inc. 5000 list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We’re honored to be featured on the 2022 Inc. 5000 list. This recognition is a testimony to the work our team consistently puts in every day,” affirmed Dan Dawes, Co-founder and CEO of Response Labs, The CRM and Loyalty Marketing Agency. “What’s exciting is that Team RL is having fun doing very complex work. Which makes sense considering we’re a data-driven company. We analyze, optimize and create a path to success for some of the biggest brands in the country. This approach helped us to grow rapidly through the pandemic, more so than previous years, and we’re on track to double revenue by year-end.”

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.
“Consistently delivering on business objectives and key metrics for our clients, requires the right people, processes, and technology,” continued Dawes. “To keep pace with the ever-changing digital landscape, we’re focused on hiring smart people. In the past year, we stood up new Media and Creative divisions broadening our capabilities and expertise. We also partnered with leading digital marketing platforms like Salesforce and The Trade Desk. Altogether, we’re well-positioned to stay at the forefront of data-driven digital marketing.”
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
