million in 2013 to qualify for the listing. They must also be U.S.
based, privately held, independent and for-profit. Companies such as
Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Under Armour, Timberland, Jamba Juice,
Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle and many other well-known companies
gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.
Andreas Sannemann, Benztown Chief Executive Officer, said: “I am super
excited we made the list two times in a row and improved our rank
compared to last year. This is a pure team success and a milestone for
the company. I am proud to work amongst and with the most talented
people in the business.”
Dave “Chachi” Denes, Benztown President, said: “Twofer, back to back,
double the pleasure… no matter how you say it, the Benztown team gave
200% to make this prestigious list for the second time in a row, and I’m
incredibly grateful to them and to our clients across broadcast radio
and digital. They’re twice the man I’ll ever be, and we wouldn’t be here
if it wasn’t for their hard work, dedication and belief in Benztown!”
