Press Release: Fueled by Global Headquarters' Growth, Bounteous Ranks on Inc. Magazine's List of the Midwest's Fastest-Growing Private Companies
Chicago-Based Bounteous Claims Back-to-Back Spot on 2021 Inc. 5000 Midwest List of Most Successful Companies
CHICAGO, March 16, 2021 – Inc. Magazine again named Bounteous, a leading insights-driven digital experience consultancy, on its Inc. 5000 Series: Midwest list of fastest-growing companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional ranking represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Midwest economy's most dynamic segment—independent small businesses like Bounteous.
The Bounteous Chicago office is the company's largest collaboration center and serves as its global headquarters. This location, nicknamed "The Studio" by team members, sits in the heart of the charming Ravenswood industrial-corridor in northern Chicago. The recently updated two-story, 25,150 square-foot, loft-style space supports a team that continues to grow its headcount, practice, and client capabilities. The Studio's people-centered design reflects the dynamic work style of Bounteous and has given the team ample space to act as a centralized meeting hub for its distributed client and team members, from whiteboard walls, adjustable workstations, and smart TVs to sleek conference rooms and cozy nooks.
"The Bounteous Chicago collaboration center has continued to expand, thanks largely to our top-tier talent and roster of both Chicago-based and international clients," said Phil Hollyer, co-founder and Executive Chairman, Bounteous. "When we moved to our new Chicago office space several years ago, we knew the vibrant neighborhood and collaborative office space would support our rapid growth for years to come, and it has. Because collaboration and producing innovative digital solutions are central to Bounteous, the space is not only open and inviting, it's designed to inspire creativity."
Company-wide, Bounteous boasts more than 700 strategists, technologists, designers, analysts, content creators, and marketers across collaboration centers in Chicago, Denver, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Toronto, Wilmington, and, most recently, Atlanta with its acquisition of FortyFour. While the Chicago footprint continues to expand, Bounteous continues to invest in its collaboration centers, recently announcing that it doubled its space in Pittsburgh. Beyond physical locations, Bounteous has continued to grow its distributed workforce, with team hubs including New York, Mexico City, Berlin, Green Bay, and Detroit, as well as an apprenticeship program based in the Midwest region to help build the next generation of technology workers.
Bounteous is a seven-time consecutive honoree of the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America, with triple-digital revenue growth over the last three years. Inc. Magazine in 2020 also named Bounteous as No. 37 on its inaugural Inc. 5000 Series: Midwest list and No. 3 in I.T. Systems Development.
