Independent Ad Tech company makes it on list of fastest-growing companies in America

SAN DIEGO, CA, August 15, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Proper Media, an independent advertising technology company based in San Diego, today announced it has been recognized by the 2018 Inc. 5000 list as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

Each year, Inc. Magazine (aka establishes the definitive list of the five thousand fastest growing private companies in America. This list is not based on opinion; companies are ranked by their respective revenue growth rates as calculated by comparing 2017 revenue to that of the 3 prior years. Proper Media is listed as the 545th fastest growing company in America, based on its more than 1,000% 3-year revenue growth rate from $3.3M to $33.8M.

“We have kept our heads down for the past few years just building our custom header bidding platform. It’s great to take a second and reflect on the amazing growth our team has achieved,” says Chris Richmond, CEO of Proper Media. “As publishers ourselves we simply wanted to find a way to increase our ad revenue by creating a real-time auction with ad exchanges. It worked so well we started offering the platform to other publishers and it took off.”

Proper Media co-founder Drew Schoentrup added, “Earlier this year we announced the acquisition of Spoutable, another leading advertising technology company in San Diego. Those revenue numbers will be included in next year’s calculation, almost assuring that we’ll be recognized by Inc. 5000 again in 2019.”
