PadSquad Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies for Second Year in a Row


The digital media company has experienced a 3,000% increase in revenue over the past decade


We are excited to announce our placement on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America for a second year in a row! PadSquad ranks #2954 on the overall list, up from last year, and #270 in Advertising & Marketing and #192 in New York. 

Our company was founded in 2012 by current CEO Daniel Meehan, and is celebrating its 10th year in business. What started as a one man operation at a kitchen table has grown to a 70+ person organization routinely delivering award-winning advertising campaigns for Fortune 1000 brands. 

At the heart of PadSquad is a consumer-first approach that puts humans at the center of advertising inventory selection, creative design, and campaign measurement. PadSquad is on a mission to bring creativity back to the forefront of digital advertising, and build remarkable ad creative for humans, by humans.

“Those humans, our people, who work at PadSquad are who make our mission possible. They define our culture, and are truly what makes our company successful,” said Daniel Meehan, PadSquad CEO and Founder. “Being named to this prestigious list for the second year in a row is a true testament to the hard work the entire team has put into the business over the past decade. We couldn’t do it without any of our dedicated employees - truly the best in the industry.”

Creative design has been the backbone of PadSquad’s business from day one, and our focus on rich media and innovation has contributed to a stellar 3,000% increase in revenue over the past decade. Our expertise and technology platforms have enabled the development of bleeding-edge products like a voice-enabled format ColorSay, and the first-of-its-kind shoppable digital creative measured by MikMak. It’s our innovative rich media products like these that have driven our 183% growth since 2018, solidifying the company as one of the Inc. 5000 fastest growing private companies in the U.S.

As third-party cookies disappear from the advertising industry, and brands go back to the days of putting ad creative first, PadSquad is uniquely positioned to help brands break through the clutter with their suite of innovative and award-winning rich media products. 

Earlier this year, with our eye to the future, PadSquad announced we received a significant growth investment from Star Mountain Capital. After years of continued, significant growth, we look to utilize the new partnership to pursue additional technology and capabilities to serve its marketing clients more comprehensively. 


Thank you to all of our amazing clients and the fantastic brands we work with everyday. None of this would be possible with out! Cheers to what the next decade hold. How can we help your brand grow into the future?
