Inc. Magazine released their official rankings for the 2013 Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, and local e-commerce company, Trend Nation, LLC., made the list at #394.
“Brad Howard’s Trend Nation is exactly the kind of company the Inc. 500 was designed to honor. The online retailer grew 1,126 percent since 2009 and lifted head count from three to 23,” says Eric Schurenberg, Editor in Chief, Inc. Magazine.
Trend Nation is a multi-channel, e-commerce company that has grown from 3 employees working out of a 3-car garage operation to nearly 30 employees in a new 33,000 square foot facility in North Las Vegas. The company warehouses, markets, and sells 14,000+ products to customers all over the world through our own company websites as well as online marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay, Sears and Best Buy. With more than 500,000 delighted customers in more than 40 countries, Trend Nation has established itself as a leader in the e-commerce multi-channel distribution business.
Trend Nation’s 1,126% growth also ranks it as #22 of the top 100 retailers on the list, and the #1 fastest growing Nevada company on the list.
“We are really honored to be recognized in this way. We were particularly delighted to hear that we had made #1 in Nevada,” says Derek Carbonneau, VP of Marketing, Trend Nation, LLC.
The company first started sourcing purse hooks out of the closet of an apartment in Cleveland, Ohio. Eventually Bradley Howard, founder and president of Trend Nation, along with his wife Melanie, moved the business to Las Vegas, Nevada. Over the past few years, the company has overcome the obstacles and challenges common to start-ups and continues to thrive.
“Trend Nation now shares a pedigree with Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Clif Bar, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle, and dozens of other notable recent alumni,” says Schurenberg.
Trend Nation has no plans to slow down. Already, the company is preparing to launch a seventh website by the end of this fall focusing on health and fitness products. As the company continues to grow, Howard hopes to add 20 new jobs by the end of next year.
“My first thought when I heard the news; OK, my second thought – We can do better!” says Brad Howard, CEO, Trend Nation, LLC.
