For the first time, GraphicBomb, an online advertising startup in the travel sector headquartered in Seattle, has been named on Puget Sound Business Journal’s (PSBJ) annual list of Washington state’s 100 fastest-growing private companies for 2017. The company ranked in the 53rd spot. PSBJ is a Seattle-based weekly publication covering business and events in the Seattle area.
The honor comes shortly after the August 2017 announcement that GraphicBomb was named one of Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing private companies in America for the second consecutive year. The company ranked in the 1949th slot.
To qualify for the PSBJ award, eligible companies must be globally headquartered in Washington state and must have recorded revenue of at least $500,000 in 2014 and demonstrated revenue growth through 2016. Award winners were invited to an October awards ceremony at CenturyLink Field.
“After many years of hard work, our team is thrilled by the recognition we’ve been receiving lately,” said Dave Boehl, CEO of GraphicBomb. “As always, we’re grateful to our customers and partners for helping us achieve this success, and look forward to developing new, cutting-edge advertising solutions to help travel companies get more bookings.”
GraphicBomb’s travel media sites (GoLastMinute.com, BeachDeals.com and Bamgo.com) have earned more than 5 million total email subscribers. The company helps users search and compare prices on airfare, hotels, vacation packages, and cruises via web and mobile sites, email and social media channels.
The company was founded in 2011 to take advantage of the growing need for specialized online advertising solutions for travel advertisers. The company is known for its virtual office and flexible schedules, which allow staff to work from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. GraphicBomb has a satellite office in Brussels.
