ATLANTA, April 2020 – The Financial Times - one of the world’s leading business news organizations - debuted its inaugural listing of the top 500 fastest-growing companies in the Americas. Ranked at No.235, The DVI Group is the only company in Atlanta (Advertising category) to record an absolute growth rate of over 200%.
“To be ranked so highly by the Financial Times is a huge honor, and one that we don’t take lightly given the tumultuous times that we now face. The DVI Group continues to be driven by a passion to create. I believe that our growth is the result of twenty years of passionate, innovative problem solving for businesses. We help our client truly engage with their audience. This need is perhaps more significant now than ever before.”
- Matthew Lopes, CEO
The FT compiled the FT Americas list with the help from research and analysis provided by Statista, a globally recognized business data platform. It provides a unique look at both the absolute growth rate and the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of high performing companies from North and South America, between 2015 and 2018.
Despite being published at such an uncertain and difficult time for businesses worldwide, the list highlights companies for whom innovation and creativity has been key to impressive revenue growth. These two attributes are ones that CEO Matthew Lopes believes will help The DVI Group continue to thrive once the economic outlook improves in the months and years ahead.
A full special report of the FT Americas rankings will be made available here on May 12.
