Green web hosting provider GreenGeeks, which takes an environmentally sound stance on web hosting, has announced that it has made the list of the fastest growing companies in America.
Inc. Magazine‘s 500I5000 Fastest Growing Companies list is extremely prestigious and is a mark of a positive future if a company gains a place on it. GreenGeeks has been ranked 561st for 2013. This ranking puts the web host amongst the elite companies in the US, as well as in the international web hosting market.
GreenGeeks takes a unique stance on web hosting; it powers most of its operations using wind energy. According to reports, the web hosting industry will become as big a polluter as the airline industry by the year 2020. GreenGeeks wants to buck the trend, and it appears to have caught on as trade has shot up in the past few years.
The CEO and founder of the company, Trey Gardner, said of the award, “We are all very pleased and honored to have made this year’s list. I would like to thank our staff and support personnel for all their great work in supporting our customers.”
The organisation reported more positive news from other categories. The list states that GreenGeeks is the 44th fastest growing company in the Los Angeles area. It’s ranked 60th in the IT service providers category across the whole of the US. And in California, it broke into the top 100 by coming in 99th place.
Observers say GreenGeeks will benefit significantly from this award. Traditionally, the list has been used to distinguish specific entrepreneurs from the competition. Therefore, this could prove to be a vital marketing tool that the company can take advantage of in the future.
There is speculation that this award will help it with its operations outside North America, such as those in Europe and the growing market of Asia.
