Newline Interactive Named #149 in Annual Inc. 500 Ranking List

2017/8/17
Inc. magazine ranked Newline Interactive no. 149 on its annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.

Placement on the list is based on three-year sales growth, with a minimum growth of ten-fold to make the list at all. Over the past three years, Newline’s sales have grown 2,587.6%, placing them well within the top 500 fastest-growing companies in the nation.

“What an accomplishment for the entire Newline team! Earning a spot as one of the 150 fastest growing private companies in the US is proof positive that this team is doing a lot of things right,” Chris Bradford, President of Newline Interactive, said. “Whether we are talking about the team in sales, marketing, technical support, warehousing and shipping, accounting, order management, or research and development, everyone has the same goal – to do everything possible to thrill our customers every day.  We think our growth story is just getting started and as long as we stay focused on thrilling customers that the sky is the limit!”

The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. 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/inc5000.

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 10 through 12, 2017 in Palm Desert, CA . Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Daymond John, one of the main "sharks" on ABC-TV’s “Shark Tank,” Dr. Brené Brown, three-time bestselling author and researcher, and Alan Mulally, former President and CEO of the Ford Motor Company.
