Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 25, 2010
Inc. magazine today listed The Lavidge Company, a Phoenix advertising agency, #3960 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Music website Pandora, convenience store chain 7-Eleven, Brooklyn Brewery, and Radio Flyer, maker of the iconic children’s red wagon, are among the prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
“The leaders of the companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression,” said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. “The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs.”
The Lavidge Company (TLC) is a full-service Phoenix advertising agency, offering a service menu that includes advertising, public relations, marketing communications, consulting and interactive marketing. Founded in 1982, TLC works with local businesses, sports franchises and national brands. From Phoenix International Raceway to McDonalds to Massage Envy to Phiten USA to LifeLock, the Phoenix advertising agency has helped companies increase sales, raise brand awareness and grow their businesses.
“We are extremely proud to be listed among such distinguished companies nationwide,” stated CEO Bill Lavidge. “We are thankful for all the clients, past and present that helped us get here. We couldn’t have done it without them.”
The 2010 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2006 to 2009. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by June 30, 2006. Additionally, they had to be based in the United States, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2009. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2006 is $80,000; the minimum for 2009 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. The top 10 percent of companies on the list constitute the Inc. 500, now in its 29th year.
