Dessert In The Desert

Movers and shakers from all walks of life gathered in Palm Desert, CA this week to attend the 2017 Inc. 5000 Conference at the beautiful JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa. Among the esteemed attendees were Benztown President/co-Founder Dave “Chachi” Denes (left) and CEO/co-founder Andreas Sannemann (right).

Benztown, recognized as a global leader in radio imaging, voiceover, programming and jingles — and an Inc. 5000 Honor Roll member, was named by Inc. magazine this summer as one of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the fifth consecutive year. Fewer than 1/10 of all Inc. 5000 honorees — an already select group — ever achieve this milestone through a consistent growth trajectory that places them on the elite list for five consecutive years.

The Inc. 5000 is an exclusive annual ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States, ranked according to percentage revenue growth rate over a three-year period. Companies must have generated at least $100,000 in revenue in 2013 and at least $2 million in 2016 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.
