iContact Corporation has made the lists - again. In the last few weeks, the email marketing services company has been named to both the Inc. 500 fastest growing company list and the Best Places to Work in the Triangle list.
The Inc. 500 list tracks the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. iContact appeared on the list for the second year in a row with a ranking of #189 and a three year growth rate of 1,057.7%.
The winners were recently honored at the Inc. 500 Conference and Awards in Washington, D.C.
The Triangle Business Journal has also honored iContact as a 2009 Best Places to Work award winner in the Large Company Category. The award is based on survey results of a company's workforce.
iContact has been on the Best Places to Work list for three years running.
"We are excited to be on both the Inc. 500 and the Best Places to Work lists," commented Aaron Houghton, co-founder and Chairman of iContact Corporation.
