Overland Agency Among Inc. Magazine’s 5,000 Fastest-Growing U.S. Companies

Inc. Magazine has listed West Coast interactive advertising and branding agency the Overland Agency among the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America.

Portland, OR, August 31, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Inc. Magazine (www.inc.com) has listed West Coast interactive advertising and branding agency the Overland Agency on its inaugural annual list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America. Serving a broad range of businesses in the fitness & lifestyle, high tech, insurance, education, and software sectors, Overland placed 3,578th in the U.S. for the rapid growth it achieved from 2003 to 2006. Overland ranked 64th for the Portland-Vancouver-Beaverton metropolitan area.

The Inc. 5,000 list (www.inc.com/inc5000) marks a new tradition for the publication, which for 26 years has ranked the 500 fastest-growing private companies based on increases in revenue and staff. As an extension of the annual Inc. 500 list, the Inc. 5,000 catches many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.

“The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy: the entrepreneurial part,” said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan.

“Having our company’s efforts recognized by an authoritative national business publication is a proud moment,” said Arve Overland, CEO and Executive Creative Director of the Overland Agency. “This honor inspires our team to work even harder to achieve more success.”

Last month, the Overland Agency was honored by the Portland Business Journal when ranked 56th in its annual 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Oregon.
