The Trade Desk Ranks #34 on Inc. Magazine's America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies -- The Inc. 500|5000

Company Places Sixth in the Advertising & Marketing Category With Three-Year Sales Growth of Nearly 7,000%

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2015) -  Inc. Magazine today ranked The Trade Desk, a leading demand-side platform in advertising technology's $20 billion programmatic industry, No. 34 on its annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America's independent entrepreneurs. The Trade Desk ranked sixth among peers in the Advertising & Marketing category.

The Trade Desk has grown to more than 250 employees worldwide since its founding in 2009, when CEO Jeff Green left Microsoft after they acquired his previous venture, AdECN. The Trade Desk quickly rose above its other demand-side peers by committing to its role as a pure buying platform, and as a technology-first organization that ships product weekly.

The Trade Desk now has more than 15 offices in markets across the U.S., Europe, and Asia, and serves clients globally.

"We've worked hard to build a platform that has changed the way advertising is transacted globally, and it's humbling to see our vision materialize. We are honored to be among other distinguished companies honored today, including a number of clients and partners," said Green. "The Inc 500 is a major milestone for any young company, and this distinction is testament to the passionate and diligent work of our entire team at The Trade Desk."

The Trade Desk's COO Rob Perdue added: "Our team is, indeed, at the core of our success. They've built the strongest technology and the best client relationships in our space.
