BINGHAM FARMS, Mich., October 6, 2008 —Identity Marketing & Public Relations, a full-service marketing and public relations agency, has earned a place on the Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country for the second consecutive year. The company is ranked nearly 1,000 spots higher on the list over the previous year. Firm principals Paul Kesman, Mark Winter and Tom Nixon made the announcement.
The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list, features many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.
Over the past three years, Identity Marketing & Public Relations experienced a 78.3% revenue growth, earning it a second appearance on the prestigious list. The firm was also recognized for its targeted approach to business-to-business communications and its niche client portfolio that includes a large percentage of companies based outside of Michigan seeking assistance on regional and national levels.
“To be nationally recognized for our success for a second consecutive year is great honor,” said Kesman. “Our growth is a direct result of our customized service offerings and personalized, results-driven approach to client service. This year has already proven to be another great year for Identity, as we have opened offices in Baltimore, Md. and Columbus, Ohio, grown our staff by more than 20%, and created an entertainment practice group to address the budding Michigan film industry.”
