Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) April 20, 2005
Fast Company magazine, in partnership with the Women's President Organization (WPO), has named Cheryle Pingel and Misty Locke, co-founders of Range Online Media, in its list of 25 Top Women Business Builders.
The 25 Top Women Business Builders were selected from more than 600 applicants and published in the May issue of Fast Company, on newsstands April 19th. Fast Company recognized Pingel and Locke's success in the list by saying they "started a search marketing firm at the height of the Internet bust and netted $24.5 million in revenue in 2004." Other companies recognized represent industries as varied as fashion, agriculture, manufacturing, and travel.
"To be included with such fantastic businesswomen on this list is an enormous compliment," says Pingel, co-founder and chairman of Range Online Media. "All I can say is that we owe every ounce of success to our dedicated employees and incredible clients."
Range Online Media was founded in 2001 and employs search marketing techniques that are unique in the industry. Services are based on smart people using technology to generate results for clients, as opposed to strictly relying on a "magic" technology solution. The reaction to this new style of search marketing was extremely positive, and resulted in a client list that includes Wyndham Hotels, Pier 1 Imports, Toshiba America and more.
Range Online Media continues to experience tremendous growth. Pingel and Locke just opened a new office in New York City at 420 Lexington Avenue, Suite 300. Range Online Media already has offices in Ft. Worth, Texas, and San Francisco, California.
The company's growth is also evident through the hiring of five new employees since the start of 2005. These new employees include:
- Ashwini Karandikar as Director of Account Services
- J.B. Brokaw to the position of Director and East Coast General Manager
- Trisha Davis and George Popstefanov as Account Managers
"We saw an opportunity to lead search engine marketing in a new direction back in 2001," says Locke, co-founder and president. "To now have a company of 30 talented employees and three offices is more than we could have asked for. To be named in the 25 Top Women Business Builders is really the icing on the cake."
