SALT LAKE CITY — November 2, 2021 — Pattern, the category leader in global ecommerce acceleration, has been named to Inc.’s first annual Best-Led Companies list—a select, data-driven list recognizing the strongest U.S. firms with revenue of $50 million to $2 billion.
To compile the list, Inc. evaluated private and public U.S.-based companies using a proprietary, 12-point measure of management excellence generated with input from partners at Pitchbook and Shango Labs.
“This inaugural list of companies represents the remarkable midsized companies, both public and private, often founder led, that are at the vanguard of reinventing American business,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. magazine. “With their leadership, all business will benefit from an exciting, competitive future full of possibilities.”
The Inc. Best-Led Companies list recognizes companies that are both large enough to have a broad impact and agile enough to maneuver. 2021 honorees have demonstrated a successful track record with leadership teams that spur solid performance, create value, penetrate markets, engage with customers, and develop talent.
“Business is truly a team sport. Leadership at Pattern comes from every level of the company,” said Pattern Co-Founder and CEO David Wright. “We are honored by the recognition, as it demonstrates the incredible power of teams working together towards aligned objectives. We’re grateful to work alongside our global team of game-changing, data-fanatical doers that power our global ecommerce acceleration platform for brands.”
Since its founding in 2013, Pattern has profitably grown to more than 1,100 employees operating in 22 global locations to support leading brands across the world. The company has a strong history of leveraging its proprietary technology, operational and logistics capabilities, and significant team of leading industry experts to help market-leading brands achieve accelerated ecommerce growth and control in more than 100 countries and across hundreds of global marketplaces—including Amazon, Tmall, Walmart.com, JD, Target.com, eBay, and Mercado Libre.
“To transform a global $6 trillion industry, you need to have the brightest minds at your side,” said Pattern Co-Founder and CIO Melanie Alder. “From Salt Lake City to Shanghai, and London to Dubai, our team is accelerating ecommerce for brands in ways never before possible. We’re excited about everything we’ve accomplished, and we’re just getting started.”
To be considered for the list, each company submitted an evaluation form providing an overview of the company’s performance, executive team, and leadership. Applicants were then analyzed via an algorithm that identified the very best companies according to their leadership teams’ superlative accomplishments in four key areas: performance and value creation; market penetration and customer engagement; talent; and leadership team.
