PR Firm Matter Communications Named a Fastest Growing Private Company by Boston Business Journal

Continuous Growth, Expanded Creative Services Buoy National PR Agency

(Newburyport, MA) – April 25, 2016 – Matter Communications, an award-winning PR and social media firm with in-house creative services and search marketing groups, was named a 2016 Fastest-Growing Private Company by the Boston Business Journal at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront late last week.

Matter ranked 65th on the list of fastest growing, Massachusetts-based companies. To be considered, companies needed a baseline of $1 million in revenue for 2015 and at least $500,000 in revenue for 2012. Companies that saw revenue drop between 2014 and 2015 were excluded. The list also excludes schools, hospitals and nonprofits.

“Since our inception in 2003, we’ve aimed to deliver results-driven public relations, social media and creative programs to help build businesses,” said Scott Signore, Founder and CEO of Matter Communications. “Our continued growth has allowed our national reach and services offerings to expand and in turn, meet the needs of our clients with innovative service offerings. We appreciate the recognition from the Boston Business Journal and we are honored to be part of a very prestigious group of fast-growth Boston-area companies.”

The Boston Business Journal award comes on the heels of Matter’s announcement earlier this month that it acquired a B2B video agency, Skyscope, which effectively doubled the video capabilities of Matter’s own award-winning video/creative services group, Studio-C.

For this award, the Boston Business Journal recognized Boston’s 76 fastest growing private companies. The top 50 companies were introduced and received their awards at an exclusive breakfast held at Renaissance Boston Waterfront.
