SwanLeap welcomed the Deloitte team to tour the recently unveiled office expansion and renovation as they were presented with the award for ranking #1 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America. SwanLeap posted a staggering revenue growth rate of 77,260% from 2014-2017. “Being recognized by Deloitte is an immense validation for our team who have contributed years of learning and working to be the very best,” shared Brad Hollister, SwanLeap co-founder and CEO.
The end to end logistics and transportation technology company is saving clients an average of 26.7% in annual shipping costs through the proprietary SwanLeap supply chain optimization software and suite of services. This exponential growth rate hasn’t been limited to revenue and savings, but also in hiring and need for space. “We are truly an engineering company, which enables us to be nimble and move quickly to expand and grow our technology,” shared SwanLeap co-founder and CTO Jason Swanson, “many companies buy technology, brand it and sell it - but at SwanLeap we are listening to what customers are looking for and creating solutions to meet their needs.”
In response to the market coming to life as it understands the tangible savings and process improvements offered by SwanLeap, the company has doubled the number of developers it employs. With expansion of staff comes the need for expansion of space. SwanLeap leased an additional 4,352 sf of office space and invested in renovating and updating the existing workspace. “When you start a company in your basement it is easy to forget that not everyone is as grateful for the 1970s decor and quick-fold banquet tables as you are,” quipped Hollister, “it was time to give our team a space that reflected the level of excellence they walk in the door with each day.” SwanLeap anticipates doubling their workforce again between 2019 and 2020.
“Congratulations to the Deloitte 2018 Technology Fast 500 winners on this impressive achievement,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “These companies are innovators who have converted their disruptive ideas into products, services and experiences that can captivate new customers and drive remarkable growth.”
