Waltham, MA (PRWEB) July 26, 2006
Zoom Information, Inc., (http://www.zoominfo.com), the search engine for discovering people, companies and relationships, continued its brisk growth in the 2nd quarter, posting its third consecutive quarter of record sales. ZoomInfo’s revenues increased 41 percent over the same period last year. The company has added more than 600 new customers since October of 2005 including MetLife, Teradyne, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, ConAgra, Safeco, US Cellular, Nationwide Insurance Co, Symantec, Clorox, General Mills, Comcast, and Oracle.
“ZoomInfo’s growth continues to exceed even my expectations,” said Jonathan Stern, founder and CEO of ZoomInfo. “I am extremely proud of the way our team has pulled together to post three record quarters and I look forward to seeing that streak extend into the 3rd and 4th quarters of 2006.”
Stern also noted significant personnel growth during the past six months. “Having just passed 70 people in the organization, we’re growing up quickly and have added a COO and CFO to help ensure continued success as a bigger company. Additionally, we hired eight new people in Q2 and plan to continue this growth to support the accelerating business.”
With 30 percent of the Fortune 100, nine of the top ten executive recruiting firms and thousands of additional customers, ZoomInfo’s flagship PowerSearch product has become the recruiting industry standard for sourcing passive candidates.
“As the economy heats up and key positions are harder to fill, ZoomInfo is the tool of choice for successful recruiters,” said Michael Souza, vice president of sales for Zoom Information. “While a ZoomInfo PowerSearch subscription was helpful in the past, it has become a necessity as the available talent pools continue to shrink.”
ZoomInfo has recently entered into agreements to provide its summaries either directly integrated into or linked to leading consumer sites, including its latest integration with AOL’s AIM Pro Instant Messaging service and ProxPro, a wireless content provider.
