I’m pleased to announce that as part of Inc. Magazine’s 2015 Inc. 500 ranking of the USA’s fastest growing private companies, AudioMicro, Inc. (including our 4 brands – AdRev, DashGo, AudioMicro, & ImageCollect) was named as the USA’s 5th fastest growing media company (and #162 overall). This accolade is based on our actual revenue growth over the past 3 years, with revenue last year growing to $13.4 million. It’s the 3rd year in a row that we’ve made the Inc. 500 (we were #2 in media in both 2014 and 2013) and if the first part of this year is any indicator, we’re in a solid position to make the list for the 4th straight time next year.  A special thank you goes out to our customers, clients, partners, and most importantly to our amazing team for all of your hard work through the years.
