"Being honored by Inc. makes me flash back to the days when I was a freelancer pounding the pavement and looking for someone to help me find the next gig. That is what it's all about and why I created the Maslow Media Group," Linda Maslow
Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
Maslow Media Group is honored to be named to the Inc. 5000 list for the fastest growing privately held companies in the country. Since its first inclusion on the Inc. 500 list in 1997, Maslow Media Group has made the Inc. 5000 list five times. On this year's list, Maslow Media Group is the 9th largest Washington, DC based company (by revenue) and 51st largest Human Resources company in the country (by revenue).
Linda Maslow formed Maslow Media Group in 1988 as the nation's first full-service video production, crewing, staffing and payroll services company headquartered in Washington, DC.
As a tough and independent producer, Ms. Maslow drew from her on-the-ground experience and production knowledge to turn an entrepreneurial dream into a worldwide network of thousands of freelancers. Geared towards corporate media, government agencies and video production companies, the company is now one of the largest woman-owned film and television companies in the world.
"Being honored by Inc. makes me flash back to the days when I was a freelancer pounding the pavement and looking for someone to help me find the next gig. That is what it's all about and why I created the Maslow Media Group," says Ms. Maslow. "It is a tremendous honor to be included in the Inc. 5000 list and to have served such an amazing group of talented creative professionals and clients."
Prompted by her uncle Abraham Maslow's "Hierarchy of Needs," Ms. Maslow infuses her business model with a management philosophy grounded in its freelancers' creative success. "I remember him as Uncle Abe, but as I have grown older his theories have been fundamental in Maslow Media's growth and approach. Take care of your people and they will take care of you."
Her initial goal of helping fellow film and television professionals find work soon evolved into a worldwide production management company dedicated to producing and creating the finest quality product for its clients. "It really is a humbling achievement to think of how far we have come," says Ms. Maslow. "And we would like to thank Inc. for honoring and recognizing Maslow and our people for the fifth time."
