Nationally recognized growth drives need for bigger quarters


INDIANAPOLIS – To accommodate growth that this week landed it on the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing companies, Indianapolis digital agency The Basement will move this fall to a new Union Station headquarters.


The Inc. 5000 listing, based on three-year revenue figures, recognizes the firm’s 69 percent growth, from revenue of $1.2 million in 2010 to $2 million last year. The Basement claimed the 4,188th spot on the overall list, and the 54th ranking among media companies.


“This listing underscores the increased use of digital channels among our clients’ customers and the power of digital storytelling within those channels,” said The Basement President Jacob Leffler. “We’re growing because our clients have seen what happens when customers truly connect with brands.”


With a portfolio featuring national and local firms including Simon, KFC, Helmer Scientific and the NCAA, The Basement has outgrown its eastside offices. This fall, it will move into a 7,200 square-foot space in Indianapolis’ historic Union Station.


“Our new space will allow us to continue to grow to meet the needs of our clients,” Leffler said. “While we’re honored to make the Inc. 5000 list, we’re more focused on our clients than on growth, because we know our growth will come as a byproduct of our client’s success.”
