Franklin, TN, May 23, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- As one of the youngest companies in the small business category, HometownQuotes nabbed the Best in Business title at this year’s 20th Annual Nashville Business Journal Best in Business Awards at the DoubleTree Hotel.
“This is amazing. It’s a privilege to even be nominated for this award and an honor to be recognized as the titleholder among so many deserving finalists,” said HometownQuotes President and Chief Executive Officer Hunter Ingram.
HometownQuotes was one of five finalists in the category of businesses with 1-25 employees. Other finalists in this category include Cabedge.com LLC, CentreSource Inc., NationLink Wireless and Praxis Communications Inc.
“The company’s just growing like crazy. The most impressive thing to me is how well Ingram seems to understand insurance agents and how the purchasing of insurance actually works,” says Germain Boer, category judge and professor at Vanderbilt University’s Owen Entrepreneurship Center.
HometownQuotes has hired a dozen associates since January and plans to add more by the end of the year. Due to rapid growth, the company has outgrown four locations and will double its current office space in Franklin within the next month.
HometownQuotes connects thousands of consumers every week with insurance agents across the nation.
The Nashville Business Journal’s annual Best in Business Awards recognizes the entrepreneurial spirit of Middle Tennessee’s best and brightest businesses.
