Five Blocks included in Inc. Magazine Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – The Inc. 5000

Five Blocks Ranks No. 3,427 on the 2020 Inc. 5000

With Three-Year Revenue Growth of Over 100%

NEW YORK, August 13, 2020 – Inc. magazine revealed yesterday that Five Blocks is No. 3,427 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.  It is the fourth time the premium digital reputation management company has received this honor.

The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. 

“We are honored to be included on this list again. We believe we are growing because the need for our strategic services is growing. Online search is the first stop for anyone seeking information about a brand. People tend to believe that the first page Google results will tell a reasonably accurate story about the subject. The problem is that it often doesn’t,” says Five Blocks CEO, Sam Michelson, outlining the problem his company helps solve. He adds, “Most people and companies don’t know how to take control of their online presence – many don’t even know it’s possible.”

Five Blocks works with clients and their communication teams to plan a deliberate online reputation that tells a more complete story. The company’s  proprietary technology tracks millions of daily data points, providing unique insights that enable them to build a holistic strategy based on big data, across locations and languages. The company’s team includes 40 results-oriented professionals from diverse disciplines including technology, communications, marketing, psychology, education, and intelligence.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
