Needless to say 2020 was a strange year. Yet it brought an invaluable opportunity to redefine, reevaluate, and reinvest. Tiger Pistol did not take this opportunity for granted. At that, 2020 has been quite a monumental year for Tiger Pistol and its growth.
In April, when normalcy seemed to be a fleeting notion, the Tiger Pistol team found ways to incorporate fun activities in their daily routine. At Tiger Pistol, we value the strong community culture we have built over the years, so staying connected and positive during quarantine was a big priority for everyone. For instance, “Quaran-Tini” virtual happy hours gave team members something exciting to look forward to. Additionally, we created a channel on Slack called #social-distancing-together which allowed the team to build stronger bonds by sharing encouragement, positivity, and laughter.
July was huge for Tiger Pistol, with a new office opened in Cleveland, Ohio! Open during a global pandemic, how do you do that?

Tiger Pistol was very glad that their new office would bring 25 job opportunities to Cleveland during a time of uncertainty for many.
In August, Inc. Magazine’s 5000 (nationwide) list ranked Tiger Pistol No. 1425 with a three-year revenue growth of 311.4%. It is an honor for us to be named one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

Another new addition to the team is our #social-distancing-together channel on slack. This channel is meant to encourage us, connect us, and remind us to stay positive. We share our home workspaces, our favorite coffee mugs, and what we’re cooking. I think our favorite was getting to see our friends’ childhood pictures.
