WASHINGTON, July 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- StrategyOne, a full-service strategic research firm owned by Daniel J. Edelman Holdings Inc., announced today that the company earned the No. 5 spot on Inside Research's list of fastest-growing market research companies for the second consecutive year, with 141.3 percent growth from 2006-2011.
StrategyOne's five-year growth was more than five times the 32.3 percent average reported by the influential market research publication, Inside Research. Additionally, StrategyOne ranked No. 46 on the annual Honomichl Top 50 Report. The 2012 Honomichl Report, which ranks the 50 largest market research firms based on their 2011 U.S. revenue achievement, was published in the June issue of the American Marketing Association's Marketing News.
"We're honored to be included in the Honomichl Top 50, but this is really just the beginning for StrategyOne," said Steve Lombardo, Global CEO of StrategyOne. "We plan to build on this momentum as we enter into the next stage in StrategyOne's growth plans—expanding our service offering, broadening our global portfolio, and deepening our market share."
StrategyOne currently has over 75 employees in fourteen offices across the U.S., U.K., France and the UAE, and provides services for 26 percent of the Fortune 50, including Boeing, Chevron, GE, Kraft Foods, Microsoft, and PepsiCo.
StrategyOne is one of only four companies in the Honomichl Top 50 Report to achieve at least 39.5 percent growth in 2011, significantly more than the 5.1 percent industry average among the 204 companies that provided data for the report.
"As public relations continues to increase its share of marketing spend, and further penetrate board rooms, it's critical that the world's only truly global, PR-centric family of companies has a world class insights and research firm. We look forward to the continued growth in services, quality, and geographic scope of StrategyOne," said Alan VanderMolen president and CEO, Global Practices & Diversified Insights Businesses, Edelman.
