For Status Labs the past five years has been something like a roller coaster ride that turned into a movie style ending. For a period of time a few years ago the online reputation management company was under fire for a scandal caused by an employee that has since been cut from the company. Co-Founder and CEO Darius Fisher was charged with stepping up and making changes that would regain the trust of their customer base, repair the reputation of Status Labs, and launch the company forward onto a whole new and brighter path. This year Status Labs was named to the Inc 500 Fastest Growing Company’s list, ranking in at 339. You could say that Fisher succeeded in his goal.
The reason that Status Labs made this list of growing private businesses was simple, and incredible. The company grew by over 1,000% in the period from 2012 to 2015 — the time in which the magazine ranked their companies. This explosive growth launched Status Labs onto a list that once housed names like Pandora, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, Yelp and more. Obviously you can see why this is a big moment for what started as a boutique PR firm out of Austin, Texas.
Fisher called the accomplishment an “honor” to be included in the Inc. 500 list. He went on to say that it exemplified just how important their industry was and how in demand digital reputation management would continue to be going forward into the future. Fisher finished off by saying that he was optimistic about what was to come as he was putting focus on growing and expanding the company even more.
Status Labs now has offices in Austin, Sao Paulo, and New York. With clients ranging across the globe it is now more important than ever that Status Labs be accessible and ready to go to battle for the companies that hire them. Having a strong brand and a great reputation can be the make it or break it difference between a company that succeeds and a company that tanks in their first year, so trusting Status Labs is a huge first step to success.
