Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 28, 2007
All Star Directories, one of the Internet's fastest growing publisher of online and career school directories, announced today its debut on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing businesses in America. The full list can be found in the September 2007 issue of the magazine.
Now in its 26th year, Inc's list of up-and-coming companies is considered a who's who of rising business stars. This is the first year Inc. has expanded its original list by ten-fold, highlighting the accomplishments of even more worthy enterprises.
Ranking at number 256 out of 5,000 on the list, with a 920% growth in sales during the qualifying period, All Star is one of 23 Washington State organizations to make the list and is one of only three companies in its competitive category to be included amongst the top 500 honorees.
"All Star 's inclusion in the Inc. 5000's top 500 fastest growing companies in the country is not only an honor, it's a validation of our growth and the manifestation of our employees dedication and hard work, " said Doug Brown, president of All Star Directories. "We opened for business in 2001 during the dotcom bust. When most companies were feeling the pain of an economic downturn, our company posted profits, and has continued to do so since our early days. We could not accomplish this success without our people - the fuel and passion behind our growth and accomplishments."
The 2007 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2003, demonstrating four full calendar years of consistent sales. Additionally, companies had to be US-based, privately held and independent - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies - as of December 31, 2006, and have at least $2 million in revenue for the last year.
