PORTSMOUTH, N.H.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PoliteMail, provider of Outlook-based employee email engagement solutions, is No. 1005 on the 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. PoliteMail has also been ranked the No. 1 fastest-growing New Hampshire-based company to make this year’s list. The Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment: Independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are fortunate to have built a great team of adaptable employees who have excelled under the pressure of rapid growth and change,” said Michael DesRochers, managing partner at PoliteMail. “Our growth trajectory proves the value of our mission to help solve corporate email overload and improve employee email engagement. And we’re still hiring more cloud systems engineers, SQL administrators, customer service and support staff, and .net developers.”
Not only have the companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 15) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.
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 at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it’s unparalleled recognition of your years of hard work and sacrifice,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
