Chicago, Ill.—June 1, 2015—Lyons Consulting Group (LYONSCG), a privately held, Chicago-based eCommerce digital agency, has been named to Crain’s Chicago Business Fast Fifty list for 2015. The Fast Fifty ranks the Chicago metropolitan area’s fastest growing public and private companies based on revenue growth between 2009 and 2014. This year marks the second year in a row LYONSCG has been named to the list. For 2015, LYONSCG ranked 10th on the list, posting 1084% five-year growth, improving its 2014 rank of 31st.


“LYONSCG focused our business exclusively on eCommerce six years ago, and that has clearly helped us grow,” said Rich Lyons, CEO and President of LYONSCG. “But our growth was only possible because of our focus on customers together with our company values of integrity, independence and commitment.”

LYONSCG takes a holistic approach to serving its customers’ eCommerce needs, enabling retailers, branded merchants and B2B organizations to maximize their eCommerce potential. LYONSCG offers services from six practice areas: Digital Strategy, Experience Design, eCommerce Implementation, Application Hosting, Application Support and Digital Marketing.

“Our holistic offerings enable LYONSCG to engage with customers throughout their eCommerce lifecycle,” said Norman Alesi, LYONSCG’s Chief Operating Officer and CFO. “Each of our practice areas collaborates to serve a specific need of our eCommerce merchants, helping them grow and achieve their online goals.”

“As our customers grow, we grow,” adds Lyons.

The company continues to demonstrate its growth in consultative offerings. Over the last year, LYONSCG has launched several new initiatives to better serve customers, including:

  • Employment growth of more than 100 new employees, bringing overall employment to over 275 total team members around the world.
  • An expanded Experience Design practice that has been the recipient of 54 total Webby, Horizon, W3, and Communicator awards in recognition of outstanding eCommerce design
  • The opening of new offices in Dallas, TX and London, UK to better serve the North American and European markets respectively.
  • The launch of LEA for Magento and LEA for Demandware, LYONSCG’s eCommerce accelerator platforms designed to expedite the build of online stores using LYONSCG streamlined and proprietary code.
  • Enhanced B2B eCommerce services in recognition of the industry trend toward increasing consumerization of online business-to-business transactions.
  • Expansion of the LYONSCG Digital Strategy and Marketing practices to address client needs to improve the marketing performance of their online sales efforts.

The Fast Fifty is the second major award granted to LYONSCG in the past two months. In April, the firm was named by Demandware as the Delivery Partner of the Year for its top quality deployments and high levels of client satisfaction.
