“Clients trusted us to deliver through the most challenging year in memory,” said Oyova President and Chief Revenue Officer Jon Tsourakis. “And our team didn’t let them down.” It really did feel, for many of us, that we were working against all odds for most of 2020 and still today. That didn’t stop Oyova. Attaining the 165th position in the Inc. 5000 Regionals marked a 32-position or 16 percent year-over-year (YOY) improvement for the company, which ranked 197th in 2019.
