Orlando, Fla. (PRWEB) August 24, 2009
3PV® - Third Party Verification, Inc., a leader in third party verification services, has been ranked No. 3290 on the third annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Consumer electronics maker Vizio, Internet giant GoDaddy, rental car service Zipcar and beverage maker Honest Tea are among the prominent brands featured on this year's list.
"Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate," said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. "That's why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year."
The award marks the first time 3PV entered the competition, and 3PV is the only third party verification provider named to the list. Inc.'s acknowledgment of 3PV reinforces the company's position as a leader in the third party verification market.
"We are very proud of our achievements and continued growth and are honored to be recognized by Inc. Magazine," said 3PV's chief executive officer, David Brinkman. "We have grown and evolved with the changing third party verification market, and are excited about our plans for the future. We are constantly working to exceed our customers' expectations and we look forward to continuing to provide reliable, high-quality services and support."
The 2009 Inc. 5000, unveiled last week on Inc.com, serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding, making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy. 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 on Inc.com.
The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2005, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies - as of December 31, 2008. Revenue in 2005 must have been at least $200,000 and revenue in 2008 must have been at least $2 million. The top 10 percent of companies on the list comprise the Inc. 500, now in its 28th year.
