Esquire Advertising, a full-service agency known for pioneering a one-of-a-kind hyper-targeted marketing technology, is pleased to announce its inclusion on Inc. Magazine’s highly anticipated list of the 5000 fastest-growing privately-owned companies in the United States. Having achieved astronomical growth in excess of 5,000 percent from 2016 to 2019, Esquire Advertising was ranked at number 56 out of 5,000 contenders across the nation.

The agency was also recognized as the 3rd fastest-growing company in the state of North Carolina, as well as the 6th fastest growing company in marketing and advertising in the entire United States.

Based in Durham, North Carolina and operating across the U.S, Esquire Advertising has become the go-to full-service advertising agency for manufacturers and retailers in the furniture, household appliances, and automotive industries. Much of its growth is linked to the company’s state-of-the-art identity resolution technology, which enables retailers to target in-market consumers with an unprecedented precision and efficiency, drastically improving returns on advertising spend.

Esquire Advertising also provides unmatched insights and complete control for co-op marketing strategies between manufacturers and retail stores. Using the company’s unique platform, manufacturers now have a way to closely monitor their co-op marketing campaigns and match them directly to in-store sales. This is a new innovation unique to Esquire.

“It’s an absolute honor for our company’s rapid growth to be recognized by Inc.,” said Eric Grindley, Founder and CEO of Esquire Advertising. “Remaining completely focused on delivering real, actionable return on investment for our clients has been a win-win for everyone involved, and our growth has come from word-of-mouth alone. This recognition serves as a testament to both the dedication of our team and the effectiveness of our technology-driven solutions.”
