Getting Good Inc

There’s an old saying in PR about “getting good ink,” referring to good press – a phrase that will probably replaced by something like “getting good bits” soon enough now, I’m sure.

Anyway, Return Path was very fortunate to be ranked #167 in this year’s Inc. Magazine Inc. 500 list of the fastest growing private companies in America. See the list here and our press release here. We were also happy to see clients of ours like Constant Contact and Zappos on the list, as well as fellow email companies Exact Target, Vertical Response, and research panel Epocrates. That’s all the sign of a healthy industry!

While we never rest on our laurels, it’s certainly nice to take a moment and reflect on the great growth we’ve had in the business the last few years and celebrate the public recognition. I’d personally like to thank our customers, our investors, and most of all, our hardworking employees (now 100 strong!) for getting us here.

Now our challenge, of course, is STAYING on the list, and hopefully upping our ranking next year!
