Today, we’re proud to announce that Pixability has again made the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. This is the 8th consecutive year that we’ve made the list, which is not only an amazing achievement, but a testament to how our company has continued to innovate and grow. Few companies can say they were recognized by the Inc. 5000 list twice, while only a select handful of companies have made the list for 8 consecutive years.
The past year has been an exciting time for Pixability. 2021 proved to be our best year yet, with revenue growing by 64%. This sustained growth was driven in large part by new customer demand for our YouTube, brand suitability, and Connected TV solutions. In fact, CTV revenues were up 228% year-over-year, with momentum continuing to accelerate through this year. As brands and agencies are increasingly looking to deploy data and insights to make more informed decisions on video platforms, we anticipate this demand will only continue to accelerate. As such, we’re continuing to invest in ensuring brand suitability while driving performance across YouTube and Connected TV through data-driven insights and expertise.
To build on our continued growth, we recently announced a partnership with Iris.tv, which extends our brand suitability offering across the Connected TV ecosystem. Through this data partnership, advertisers can better understand at the video level where their ads are running across CTV channels. Advertisers can then target audiences based on GARM suitability risk profiles and contextual categories, enabling more precise targeting and enhanced brand suitability capabilities.
Recently, we also joined the Global Alliance for Responsible Media to lend our expertise and insights to the organization’s efforts to create industry standards around brand safety and suitability. Together, we published a study focused on brand safety and performance on YouTube and partnered with GARM to discuss the results through an Adweek webinar.
To continue this forward momentum, we recently added three key executives to our leadership team. Brian Quinn, the former president of OpenSlate, joined as our new Chief Growth Officer, Brent Spitzer joined as our new EVP of Sales, and Jon Phenix joined as SVP, Independent Agencies. Their skill and experience as ad tech veterans positions Pixability to continue to drive growth and scale globally and across the Connected TV ecosystem.
We’d like to thank our brand and agency customers for allowing us to continue driving success for their video advertising across YouTube and CTV; our eco-system technology partners including Iris.tv, DoubleVerify, IAS, Nielsen, Comscore, Shuttlerock, VidMob, Innovid, and LoopMe; and our CTV platform partners YouTube, Roku, Hulu, and Amazon Fire.
