Arizona-based travel technology and digital marketing firm named one of America's fastest-growing private companies
TUCSON, August 26, 2011 - For the fifth year in a row, Simpleview has been named to the Inc. 5000 list, a ranking of the fastest-growing privately held companies in 2011 by Inc. magazine, Simpleview is ranked #20 in the travel industry category this year and #2650 overall. The ranking also landed Simpleview on Inc.'s Honor Roll - a select group of 514 companies that have made the Inc. 5000 list every year since its creation in 2007.
"Making the Inc. 5000 list five years running is a reflection of how we choose to reinvest in the company so we can continually offer the best products and services and deliver the highest level of service to our customers," said Ryan George, CEO of Simpleview. "When we made the list in 2007, we had 30 employees and about 100 customers. Today we have more than 80 employees and nearly 200 customers, and based on our strengths and our traction in the market, I expect to see healthy growth next year and well into the future."
