This morning the Albany Business Review named us to their 2016 list of Fastest Growing Companies and ran a corresponding story on us. Both links are behind a paywall. After failing to find a copy at my local grocery store and gas stations, I paid $4.99 for a PDF copy. Here’s the article (click to enlarge):
The Fastest-Growing Companies list is based upon five-year growth. For a reasonably sized city like Albany, being #18 feels like a pretty good accomplishment!
The Business Review doesn’t have massive distribution, but it does have a very specific readership of local business owners, executives, and real estate developers. Recognition from them is in many ways more important to us than large local media outlets, particularly as we look out the next few years and start to consider options like buying our own building as I mentioned in the article
I think it’s also worth mentioning that, according to my phone, I had a 22 minute and 24 second conversation with the reporter. While I think he did a very good job with the piece, some details were slightly off or not quite portrayed exactly how I intended them in the context of the conversation. That’s totally understandable and to be expected when you boil 22 minutes down to a few paragraphs, but it’s also a good reminder of how these things work.
All in all we couldn’t be happier to get some big local recognition for the first time!
