TAMPA, Fla., May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Leverage Digital has been recognized again for its growth by the University of South Florida Alumni Association. For the second straight year, the Tampa-based digital marketing agency was inducted into the top 25 of the USF Fast 56 by USF System President Judy Genshaft and USF Alumni Association Board of Directors Chair Jim Harvey.

"It's a tremendous honor to be recognized again by the University of South Florida as one of the fastest growing alumni-led companies.
