Downers Grove, IL (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
KeyLimeTie, LLC, a Chicago area-based interactive design and development agency specializing in web and mobile technologies, recently announced that Inc. magazine named the Company to its 2012 Inc. 5000 List, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies in the US. Ranked at No. 2171, KeyLimeTie joins 240 other Chicago area-based companies, including customers Authentify, PLS Financial Services, Parts Town and Meatheads, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
“Being recognized by Inc. Magazine is a significant accomplishment and designation that we aspired to achieve when we started KeyLimeTie 5 years ago” said Chris Pautsch, Co-Founder and CEO of KeyLimeTie. “We are proud to be included with the other companies on the list who have achieved similar, accelerated growth over the past few years.”
For the 3-year period, KeyLimeTie achieved a 119 percent revenue growth rate putting it ahead of the median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 5000 companies of 97 percent.
“Our company’s growth is directly attributable to our talented staff and our outstanding clients who continue to trust in our insight and expertise to elevate their brands and reputations through technology and innovation,” said Brian Pautsch, Co-Founder and President of KeyLimeTie. “Being ranked amongst the Inc. 5000 is an incredible honor for us and a great acknowledgement of our hard work.”

The 2012 Inc. 5000 List 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. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000.
