SEATTLE, WASHINGTON –evo makes the list of Inc. magazine’s 500 fastest growing private companies at number 475. Founder, Bryce Phillips, attributes the evo’s momentum to “the right team of employees working around a collective vision” and bringing a coordinated menagerie of product to the right customers who are excited about evo’s philosophy. Agile response to market factors have played large role in evo’s growth as well as the steady success of evo’s affiliate marketing program.

Evo experienced strong 622.4% growth over the past 3 years as it added more employees, now over 40, committed to the vision of a work and life balance in addition to skis, snowboard, wakeboard, and clothing partners. Most recently evo added Burton Snowboards, K2 Snowboards, and Gnu Snowboards to its online and brick & mortar offerings. The future looks bright for the folks in Fremont.
