This week we’re celebrating some great news. Liquid Web has yet again been named to INC. Magazine 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in the United States, for the seventh consecutive year! Of course, we know you’re just as excited as we are. Our growth isn’t just a number, but is proof we are continuously adding to our team of Heroes that are standing by, ready to provide our renowned one-site support, 24/7/365.
Our sustained growth comes as no surprise to the employees working in our headquarters in Lansing – we have a constant influx of trainees every month. In fact, we have more than quadrupled in size since our first mention on this list seven years ago, and in the last year alone have increased our staff over 23%. After a few weeks of participating with our in-house training program, our new trainees are prepped, polished, and ready to be someone’s Hero – Liquid Web style. They are then sent to work at one of our data centers in Lansing and Arizona. Many of them are destined for our Sales or Support departments, but some find themselves in Monitoring, Development, or on our Windows team. No matter where they end up, they become an important part of our Heroic staff.
We have good reason to be proud that all our growth has been recognized. The INC 5000 list is one of the most prestigious honors for which a young business can be recognized in the United States, as it functions as a reliable barometer of the current leaders in US industry. It take into account each company’s industry, revenue, number of employees, and location, and is based on a percentage of revenue growth over the previous four-year period.
Liquid Web Founder and CEO, Matthew Hill, is particularly proud of this latest accomplishment.
“Earning this distinctive honor for a seventh straight year is a tremendous achievement for Liquid Web,” Hill said. “I am encouraged and emboldened to continue promoting the brand of premium service and support this company has been founded on and that has been instrumental in achieving this growth. Furthermore, this is a fantastic tribute to our amazing staff and the way they have embraced the concept of helpful, timely and responsive customer service in the managed hosting field.”
Even though we’re extremely proud of this accomplishment, we’re not going to rest on our laurels. We have no plans to slow down and will focus on future growth and achievement, build new data centers and keep providing our excellent 24/7/365 Heroic Support.
