Louisville, KY. – Oct. 13, 2010 – "Inc. Magazine" has ranked LEAP, a full-service digital agency, No. 1,041 on its annual listing of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States. LEAP has appeared on the Inc. 5000 list since the list's inception. This year's ranking is the highest ever for the agency.

To qualify for the Inc. 5000, companies must be able to show four full calendar years of sales, be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. This year's list ranks companies according to percentage revenue growth from 2006 through 2009.

During this period, LEAP has enjoyed a revenue growth rate of 290 percent. What has helped LEAP achieve this impressive rate of growth is the agency's understanding of the integrated digital lifestyles of modern consumers. LEAP is able to provide strategic insight and digital marketing strategies that help its clients connect with "always on" consumers, delivering the kind of results that bring these brands back for more.

"We are able to provide real strategic guidance to our clients. This makes us more than just another agency for hire," says Daniel Knapp, LEAP's chief executive officer. "It makes us a valued partner. Being able to provide this kind of expertise has helped us both retain and gain clients, which in turn leads to the kind of growth rate that is noticed on the Inc. 5000."

The Inc. 5000 list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy: America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. It serves as a unique illustration of the profound changes that are taking place in the U.S. economy and how these companies are thriving despite the challenges.
