For the third year in a row, The List, the leader in sales lead generation resources, has earned a position on the Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive annual ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. As an Inc. 5000 honoree, The List joins Spirit Airlines, Vizio, Honest Tea, and Dunkin Donuts among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.

Inaugurated in 2007, the Inc. 5000 recognizes and celebrates the creativity, resilience and tenacity of America’s top entrepreneurs.

"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward,” says Inc. magazine Editor Jane Berentson. “Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is.”

Despite a stagnant economic environment, The List has grown by an impressive 33 percent in the last three years and credits its success to product innovation, consultative customer service, and unparalleled data accuracy that is very highly valued by advertising, marketing and media decision makers.

“Although The List consistently improves our product’s content, features and functionality, our true success lies in our roster of satisfied clients,” says Todd Knutson, Chief Executive Officer of The List. “Our customers regularly uncover sales and new business intelligence that leads to revenue growth. That, coupled with our consultative approach to customer service, helps our clients experience the value of utilizing The List as their business development partner.”
