PROFIT and Canadian Business unveil annual list of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies

P500 Logo-2016-ADS (Blue)TORONTO, ON (September 15, 2016) Canadian Business and PROFIT today ranked AskingCanadians 139 on the 28th annual PROFIT 500, which ranks Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies based on their five-year revenue growth.

AskingCanadians placed in the top third of this year’s list with a 500 per cent increase in revenue from 2010 to 2015.

“Companies become a part of the PROFIT 500 through innovative thinking, smart strategy and sheer grit,” said James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. “These firms demonstrate what Canadian entrepreneurs can achieve, both at home and across the globe.”

Delvinia CEO Adam Froman attributes AskingCanadians’ remarkable growth to a number of factors including its commitment to R&D, continually testing emerging and innovative technologies to collect data, providing customer service to panellists, and building an experienced and consultative sales team to serve the Canadian marketplace.

“AskingCanadians is honoured to be included on the PROFIT 500 ranking,” Froman said. “This achievement reflects the strength of our business in the Canadian market and the dedication of our team to servicing our clients, building new business, and growing the AskingCanadians brand across Canada, making us the dominant data collection company in the country.”
