Today Inc. Magazine announced its list of top 5000 growing private companies. With over $53 million in revenue and a compound growth rate of 74.7 percent, we at AppRiver are celebrating our ninth consecutive appearance on this list! The list of companies who have made the list nine times or more is miniscule, with only 19 IT service companies sharing the honor with us.
In a statement, Inc.’s President and Editor-in-Chief Eric Schurenberg attributed the success of the companies on the list to great leadership, saying, “The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top. You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
Great leadership is certainly a driving force here at AppRiver. Earlier this year, our President and CEO Michael Murdoch won three awards for outstanding leadership, with his business ethics and community devotion being lauded. Those awards include:
- 2015 Gulf Breeze Rotary Citizen of the Year
- Inweekly’s Power 100 (no. 25)
- The University of West Florida and the Combined Rotary Clubs of Pensacola’s 13th Annual Ethics in Business Award (large business sector)
