September 6, 2012. Clearly, some clarification is in order. You see, the Maestro team has expanded from six to 36 members in the last three years. And we have grown revenue a whopping 644% during the same period. Put numbers like that together, and they begin to tell a pretty impressive story. In fact, it is so impressive Inc. Magazine has named us one of the fastest-growing companies in the whole United States—number 573 on their annual 500/5000 list.
The Inc. 500/5000 lists the fastest-growing private companies among the more than seven million private, employee-based firms in the country. The Inc. 500 lists the top companies on that list. Although we didn’t quite make it into the rarified ranks of the very fastest growing, we were close. What’s more, we rank number 37 among providers of business products and services.
Established by Inc. in 1982, the 500/5000 list ranks companies by overall revenue growth over a three-year period. Making the list has long been a mark of entrepreneurial success, and many of today’s household names (Pandora, Microsoft, 7 Eleven, Toys ‘R’ Us, Oracle and Zappos, to name a few) made an early appearance on the 500/5000.
Of course, none of this would be possible without you, our remarkable clients. It is your confidence in us that fueled our growth and the expansion of our team. Thanks to you, we’ve been able to assemble a team of visionaries who can make your dreams come true.
So when we attend the Inc. 500/5000 conference and award ceremony in early October, it won’t just be for us. It will be for all of you, as well. Maestro’s 500/5000 Award: More evidence we are better together.
