Acquia Named to Inaugural Build 100 [March 31, 2014]
Recognized for Achieving Five Years of Sustained Growth As A Company, Helps Organizations Gain Speed and Agility in Delivering Digital Experiences
BURLINGTON – March 31, 2014 – Acquia, where great digital experiences begin, today announced it was named to the Build 100, a listing of elite, U.S. mid-market companies that have achieved sustained growth during each of the past five years.
The Build 100, a project created by the editors of Inc. magazine, identifies companies that are sustained-growth champions. Based on data collected from more than 100,000 mid-market companies in the U.S. with 85 to 999 employees, the list was created based on the number of organizations that increased their employee headcount every year from 2007 to 2012. From the mere 1.5 percent of companies that met that standard, Inc. worked to further analyze the DNA of these organizations to determine how growth is sustained.
“Acquia has led the trend of open source as a service, combining the innovation of open source with the agility of cloud applications,” said Tom Erickson, CEO, Acquia. “As a company that creates new-generation digital experiences that combine content, community and commerce, we’re fortunate to have a passionate and committed team who works with our partners to deliver extraordinary digital experiences for our customers.”
The end of 2013 marked the company’s 19th consecutive quarter of revenue growth with year-over-year revenue growing by 51 percent in 2013. Acquia also significantly increased its workforce in 2013, growing from 280 to more than 400 employees worldwide.
With its continued growth, Acquia was recognized as the fastest growing private company in North America on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, and ranked 8th among software companies on the 32nd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
