I am thrilled to share with you that Fathom has been recognized as one of the Weatherhead 100 fastest-growing companies in northeast Ohio. In fact, our sales growth of 1,017 percent over the past five years was good enough to earn us second place on the list.
It is exciting to be part of the business community contributing to Cleveland’s economic rebound. Cleveland is a great city with outstanding people that come to work every day with fresh ideas and energy.
I’d like to extend special congratulations to three of our local clients who also made the list – SecureState (#7), NineSigma (#35) and BrandMuscle (#36). We get the most satisfaction out of our job when we’re able to see our efforts help our clients grow. Our goal isn’t just to increase search engine visibility; we want to make a measurable, lasting impact to each client’s bottom line.
The one thing I’ve learned from coming to work every day is that Fathom’s growth has not been accidental. It’s been a result of employees dedicating themselves to achieving measureable results for their clients. Success has not come just because we’ve formed a plan for the future, but because each employee has bought into Fathom’s core values and taken initiative to make good things happen.
The Weatherhead 100 recognition capped off one of Fathom’s best years. This year, we’ve been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing companies and awarded a Crain’s Leading EDGE award. We’ve improved client retention while earning new business from many satisfied partners. We’ve even started working on an office expansion.
While 2010 was great, we plan on coming out even stronger in 2011. Look for announcements in the months to come about things we’ve been working on to further establish ourselves as leaders in the Internet marketing industry.
