America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies-the Inc.500|5000
COMMUNICATION INFRASTRUCTURE CORPORATION Ranks No. 1522 on the 2013 Inc. 500|5000, No. 35 of the top 100 Telecommunications Companies,
with Three-Year Sales Growth of 262%
NEW YORK, August 22, 2013 -- Inc. magazine ranked Communication Infrastructure Corporation NO. 1522 on its seventh annual Inc. 500|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 entrepreneurs. Fuhu tops this year's list. Communication Infrastructure Corporation joins LivingSocial, Edible Arrangements, CDW and Lifelock, among other prominent brands featured on this year's list.
"We are especially proud of making the Inc. 5000 list. Achieving the growth we did to win the award required each person at CIC to do something. Unlike a software company where growth is accomplished by customers downloading software, every penny of growth required a unique and distinct act performed by an individual. Every member of the CIC team went through a great deal of effort and all of our systems were put to the test to achieve this accomplishment." -Marty Snyder, President.
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2013 Inc. 500|5000 companies is an impressive 142 percent. The companies on this year's list report having created over 520,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $241 billion.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/5000.
"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500 | 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy," says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
