We look forward to this announcement every year, and here it is again: We are officially on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing, privately-owned U.S. companies for the ninth year in a row! We owe this honor to a 64% growth rate and an addition of 141 new employees to our workforce over the last three years. Of all 5,000 companies on the list, only 22 companies have been on the list longer than Liquid Web. Winning this award yet again is all thanks to our dedication to Heroic Support® and our incredible customers. Growth always has been, and will continue to be, a main focus of ours - but only as long as it enhances our current model of providing the best customer support possible. Our growth over the past year has included a new location in Amsterdam, NL, as well as a substantial investment from Madison Dearborn Partners. Our CEO, Jim Geiger, plans to use this investment to encourage even more growth in the years to come. “It’s extremely pleasing to see Liquid Web recognized for its growth, however this honor also serves as more motivation to continue this trend,” Geiger explained. “We’ve already gotten off to a running start, not only initiating new developments geared toward the needs of our customers and the hosting industry at large, but also making certain that we are aligned to scale our business to unprecedented heights.” The Inc. 5000 list indicates which privately-owned companies lead the country in growth over time, taking into account revenue and employee growth over the previous three year period, as well as industry and location. Not only has Liquid Web been on this prestigious list for nine years in a row, but we are also included on the “Inc. 5000 Honor Roll” - a list of companies who have been on the list for more than five years. The many years of growth we’ve experienced have been exciting — for both Liquid Web employees and customers — but we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. We plan to take this growth and capitalize on it for many years to come, as we continue to expand our innovative products and provide our customers the best customer support in the industry.
