The Revenue Expertise Behind
Atomic Revenue

Our Road to Revenue Operations

In 2014, Ryan Bretsch founded Algorithmics to bring sales operations as a management discipline from Seattle to St. Louis. As he made connections in St. Louis’, he met Tara Kinney who was running a subscription marketing operations firm. After collaborating on a few projects, it was clear that combining forces as a revenue operations firm would deliver greater value to more companies throughout the region.

Tara assumed majority interest of the company in January of 2015 and promptly rebranded as Atomic Revenue. Since then, we have grown our internal leadership team and expanded our subject matter expert resources to more than 20 people nationwide. Still headquartered in St. Louis, we now have a national footprint with clients and team members spreading from Hawaii to Washington DC.

With more than 85% of our clients coming from referral, we are becoming a trusted partner of legal experts, accounting firms, CFOs, marketing agencies, and sales consultancies. With expertise in revenue operations, it’s easy to understand how we’ve grown at a consistent rate of over 300% year-over-year and have no plans to slow down.

We will continue to develop the standards for revenue operations that companies from small to enterprise should follow to produce more profitable revenue growth.
