Greenfly continues to build momentum with two exciting announcements today that recognize our company’s growth trajectory, incredible team of industry leaders, and influence on a notable and growing customer base across industries.

Greenfly Named to the 2020 Inc. 5000 List

Greenfly has been included on Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.

We’re excited to join a list that has previously included Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known companies as Inc. 5000 honorees. In naming Greenfly to this year’s list, Inc. noted our three-year revenue growth of over 464 percent.

“Being named one of Inc. 5000’s Fastest Growing Companies is a reflection of the incredible relationships we’ve built with our customers and partners around the globe,” said Daniel Kirschner, CEO of Greenfly. “These include many of the world’s largest organizations in sports, entertainment, TV, and other industries. They rely on Greenfly daily to activate their loyal communities of advocates, and to collaborate and share media across different departments and groups. I couldn’t be more grateful to those customers and partners. And I couldn’t be prouder of the dedication and hard work of our team in building and scaling Greenfly to make this possible.”

Greenfly is media exchange infrastructure for some of the world’s largest sports teams and leagues, media and entertainment firms, Global 1000 companies, as well as social impact organizations, and political campaigns.

Andrew Patterson Named Best Digital Executive by Cynopsis Sports

We’re also excited to congratulate Andrew Patterson, our VP of Partnerships and Strategy, who was named this year’s top Digital Executive at the Cynopsis Sports Media Awards. This honor recognizes innovators whose tactics have changed the way viewers absorb sports media on digital platforms and have raised the bar for the future use of technology.

Andrew was recognized as a dynamic executive who’s been at the leading edge of sports media innovation for nearly a decade, driving the integration of digital technology and fan experiences in the industry. At Greenfly, he manages strategic relationships with key customers and distribution partners, along with our business strategy. He joined Greenfly in 2019 from Major League Baseball Advanced Media, where he was the Senior Director of New Media and Business Development, and their first social media employee.

The media partnerships Andrew has built at Greenfly have led to hundreds of thousands of new photos and videos flowing through the Greenfly platform, and tens of thousands of media postings by athletes and fans alike on social media networks. His efforts have driven transformational fan engagement for our customers all over the world, and have helped expand our work across industries to solve challenges in sourcing and amplifying engaging content.

These two honors exemplify the impact Greenfly has had across industries since our founding in 2014. We continue to build upon Shawn Green and Daniel Kirschner’s vision to make it easier to move content between brands and their advocates.

The millions of visual assets that have been organized, curated and delivered through the Greenfly platform have resulted in over a billion additional social interactions for some of the world’s most prominent organizations.
