Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
The Pedowitz Group, the authority on Revenue Marketing Transformation™, announces its induction into the 2012 Inc. 500, which represents the top tier of the Inc. 5000. An exclusive listing of the nation's fastest-growing private companies, this ranking takes a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
Jeff Pedowitz founded The Pedowitz Group in 2007 with a mission to help marketers become successful Revenue Marketers® and drive revenue within their organizations. Since then, the company has earned multiple awards, including being named one of the fastest growing private companies in Atlanta for the last two years. In 2011 Jeff and his partner, Debbie Qaqish, Chief Revenue Marketing Officer, were recognized as two of the Top 10 Most Influential People in Sales Lead Management.
“Being an Inc. 500 company is a major accomplishment, especially given today’s challenging marketplace,” Jeff said. “This is the first year we were eligible to compete for the Inc. 500/5000 and to come in at the top tier is immeasurably rewarding.”
To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a minimum of 770% in sales growth. The Inc. 500’ s aggregate revenue is $15.7 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1,431 percent. The companies on this year's Inc. 500 employ more than 48,000 people and generated over 40,000 jobs in the past three years.
The Pedowitz Group joins ranks with companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and others who gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000. As an Inc. 500 company, The Pedowitz Group will be featured along with the other Inc 500 companies in the September issue of Inc. Magazine. Complete results of the Inc. 500|5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/500.
"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
The 2012 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2011. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2008 is $100,000; the minimum for 2011 is $2 million. Companies on the Inc. 500 will be featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/500.
