NEW YORK, September 23, 2009 – With a three year sales growth of 218 percent, Relocation.com has been included in Inc. magazine's third annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America's independent-minded entrepreneurs.
"Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate," said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan.
The 2009 Inc. 5000 serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding, making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com.
"We're delighted to be called out by Inc. as one of the nation's fastest growing private companies," said Sharon (Ron) Asher, chairman and founder, Relocation.com.
"Relocation.com offers a full suite of services for those who are planning a move, in the middle of the process or settling in to their new residence. Our growth—even in a very challenging economy—speaks to the fact that consumers find Relocation.com's services of value and that they are recommending us to others."
