Press Release: For the 10th consecutive year, Liquid Web is honored as an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing U.S. Company

LANSING, Mich.- Aug. 26, 2016- Liquid Web, Inc. (www.liquidweb.com), a $100 million web-hosting and managed cloud-services provider, has been selected as one of Inc. Magazine’s 5000 Fastest-Growing U.S. Companies for the 10th consecutive year. The Inc. 5000 list is determined by a percentage of the overall revenue growth over three years for privately owned U.S. companies. Other factors taken into consideration are industry, location, revenue and number of employees. Over the last three years, Liquid Web has experienced a 40 percent growth rate. Now, with the recent acquisition of the Cloud Sites business unit from Rackspace, Liquid Web has grown to 550 employees and serves over 30,000 clients in 150 countries.

This year, Liquid Web is one of 58 national companies that achieved the consistent growth necessary to make the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing U.S. Companies list for the 10th consecutive time. Only 15 privately owned U.S. companies have been able to achieve this honor more times than Liquid Web. Liquid Web is recognized on the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll, an achievement reserved for companies that make the Inc. 5000 List for at least five consecutive years.

“We certainly take great pride in this accomplishment,” said Liquid Web CEO Jim Geiger. “It is one that not many companies can boast. Achieving this honor for a tenth consecutive time further validates our unwavering dedication to providing impeccable products, service and support to the web-dependent professionals we serve.
