RyTech, LLC Named to Inc. Magazine’s list of Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Midwest


RyTech, LLC announced today that the firm earned a spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 Regional Midwest fasted-growing private companies. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the Midwest economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent small businesses. The companies on this list show stunning rates of growth across all industries in the 12 Midwest states.

What started as nights and weekends at Steve Ryan’s kitchen table has transformed into an award-winning digital marketing firm working with clients across the United States and internationally. RyTech started by trying to be all things to all people and quickly realized that the firm needed to specialize in services, invest in a team, and put customer service and client relationships at the forefront. That’s when RyTech emerged as it is today. From being a solopreneur to a team of 20+ employees, RyTech continues to grow and expand each year. RyTech continually demonstrates strong year-over-year growth without compromising quality of deliverables and efficient operations.

“In less than a decade, our firm has been recognized as an industry leader, established a client base across more than half of the states in the U.S., and has partnered with several international clients. It’s a remarkable accomplishment, and we are honored to be included on this impressive list among other privately held companies in the Midwest,” said Beth Warmuth Ryan, RyTech’s chief marketing officer.

Believing in the power of partnerships, RyTech prides itself on developing long-lasting partnerships with its clients. The firm does not lock clients into a long-term contract, allowing the team to focus on delivering results and building relationships. The firm describes client relationships as partnerships instead of vendor-client relationships because of the collaborative approach and focus. In doing so, RyTech boasts an 85% client retention rate.

“The success and growth of our firm is not the sole effort of any one individual. Rather it stems from a talented and dedicated team who work in partnership with committed clients who see the direct impact of our efforts on their business,” commented Sam Kessenich, RyTech’s chief digital officer.

RyTech has previously been recognized for its growth, expertise, and commitment to the community by Sprout Social, Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts, Daily Herald Business Ledger, and others. The honor of being included on the Inc. 5000 Regionals: Midwest list adds to an already impressive collection of recognition for the growing firm.

“From day one, I wanted to help businesses capitalize on the expanding digital market and rapidly changing digital landscape. To accomplish this, I knew this required a commitment to long-term client partnerships based upon trust and integrity. These foundational elements remain as much a part of RyTech now as they did on day one,” said Founder & CEO, Steve Ryan.
