Michael Durham and I will be in attendance for the Inc. 500|5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony in Phoenix, Ariz., on October 5th to accept the hardware.
Firstly and most importantly, we could not have done this without our amazing publishers and advertisers. We want to thank you all for your continued support and loyalty to Convert2Media over the last five years. It has been our distinct privilege to serve you. We certainly couldn’t have achieved this level of recognition without our kick ass clients.
I also want to thank the employees here at C2M. They are like family to me and they have been the lifeblood of this company. Only one word can summarize our team: Awesome!
Their hard work and dedication can be directly attributed to the rapid growth and overall success of Convert2Media. Rest assured, we’re not done growing. The marketplace is expanding into new areas from where we are today and this is just a fraction of our larger accomplishments yet to come.
Secondly, I want to explain how we got on this list and exactly what it means.

Inc. Magazine reports that despite the sluggish economy, the median growth rate among Inc. 500 and 5000 companies is 97 percent. In the past three years, these companies have created more than 400,000 jobs and generated aggregate revenue of $299 billion.
We are extremely proud to be a part of that growth and defying the odds in a weak global economy.
