Diplomaframe.com on Inc. 5000 Fast-Growth Business List For Eighth Time
Spotlight on Customer Care and Job Creation
Monroe, CT – October 27, 2014 – “The official 2014 Inc. 5000 list is out, and this is our eighth time to make the list. This repeat frequency puts us in very rare company and everyone should be proud of their role in this big achievement,” stated Lucie Voves, CEO and founder of Church Hill Classics, known online as diplomaframe.com
The list Ms. Voves is referring to is Inc. Magazine’s eagerly awaited listing of the fastest-growing companies in America. Diplomaframe.com experienced 46% growth in revenue from $6.2 million in 2010 to $9.1 million in 2013. With this eighth year on the Inc. 5000 list, diplomaframe.com is one of 3,129 companies that have made the list more than once. It also is among 908 honor roll honorees which have been on the Inc. 5000 list at least five times.
In a letter from Eric Schurenberg, president and editor in chief of Inc. Magazine, he said, “As an Inc. 5000 honoree, DiplomaFrame.com now shares a pedigree with intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Clif Bar, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle, and other notable alumni.”
Mr. Schurenberg added, “Only a tiny fraction of the nation’s companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent high growth, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years. This achievement truly puts you in rarified company.”
