WASHINGTON DC – Sept. 23, 2011 - Pactimo, a leading provider of premium technical athletic apparel, is honored to be selected by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies in America. This is the third consecutive year that Pactimo has made the prestigious list.
Inc., the only major business magazine focused solely for CEOs of fast-growing, private companies, compiles its list based on a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“We’re honored to be named on the 500|5000 list again this year, and we’re proud to be recognized among the leading enterprises that drive the U.S. economy,” said Frank Kim, Pactimo Chief Executive Officer. “Pactimo has seen steady revenue growth over the last year, and that trend is set to continue into the future.”
Kim was interviewed while attending the honorees conference by Chase Business. The interview can be viewed on YouTube.
Each year, Inc. Magazine releases its 500|5000 List, which ranks the fastest-growing, private companies in the U.S. The list results are based on the percentage of revenue growth from 2007 to 2010. To qualify, companies must be based in the United States and have earned a minimum revenue of $100,000 in 2007 and a minimum revenue of $2 million in 2010.
Inc.’s list debuted in 1981 as a ranking of the 100 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. The following year, it expanded to the Inc. 500 and, in 2007, the Inc. 5000 was inaugurated. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Clif Bar, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.Through each evolution, Inc. has sought to recognize and to celebrate the creativity, dedication, and hard work that entrepreneurs put into building their companies.
