Chicago-based digital agency makes prestigious list of Chicago’s fastest-growing firms for the 3rd year in a row

Lyons Consulting Group (LYONSCG), a privately held, Chicago-based eCommerce digital agency, has been named to Crain’s Chicago Business magazine’s 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 2010 and 2015. This year marks the third year in a row LYONSCG has been named to the list. For 2015, LYONSCG ranked 16th on the list, posting 926% growth over the five-year period.

“Our growth is driven by a ‘One-Team’ focus that is designed to tightly partner with our customers in helping them to realize their eCommerce potential,” says Rich Lyons, CEO and president of LYONSCG. “Our employees work with each other and with our clients to achieve client goals, and that’s paying off for us in increased business and overall growth.”

LYONSCG serves its online retail, branded manufacturer, and B2B customers’ eCommerce needs throughout their lifecycle, enabling its’ clients to work with one organization that can develop an online commerce strategy, implement it through leading software platforms, and ultimately grow their online business. LYONSCG offers services from six practice areas: digital strategy, experience design, eCommerce implementation, application hosting, application support and digital marketing.

“One element driving our strong growth is our decision to expand capabilities in digital strategy, digital marketing, and experience design; these award-winning practices are enabling us to serve our clients holistically” said Norman Alesi, LYONSCG’s COO and CFO. “We’ve added more than 30 consultants in these areas to help us better serve our customers in every facet of their digital eCommerce endeavors.”

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 an expanded reach into the booming B2B eCommerce market, further expansion into Europe, and the doubling of the size of its ongoing client support operations in its Ann Arbor and Rockford offices.

LYONSCG has been the recipient of several major awards this year. In April, the firm was named by Demandware as the Global Sales Partner of the Year for its top quality deployments and high levels of client satisfaction, and Rich Lyons was named by Consulting magazine to its list of top 25 Consultants for 2016.
