    NEW YORK, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Direct Agents, an interactive
 advertising agency, has been named one of the 50 Fastest Growing
 Asian-American Businesses by the U.S. Pan Asian-American Chamber of
 Commerce Education Foundation. Direct Agents will be honored at the USPAACC
 White House Gala on May 28th in Washington, DC.
     The USPAACC-EF is the largest Asian-American nonprofit association in
 the United States. Founded in 1984, the USPAACC-EF's ongoing work concerns
 the personal and professional development of Asian-American businesses and
 business owners. Those Asian American-owned enterprises competing for the
 prestigious ranking are assessed on the basis of percentage revenue growth
 over a period of three years, with finalists and winners independently
 verified by the accounting and consulting firm of BDO Seidman, LLP.
     Direct Agents' founders, brothers Josh and Dinesh Boaz, attribute much
 of their remarkable young success to the values of their Asian heritage.
 They launched Direct Agents in 2003 and have since guided the company
 through five consecutive years of more than 50% annual growth. "We are
 honored to have been named one of the 50 Fastest Growing Asian-American
 Businesses by the USPAACC," says director Dinesh Boaz. "We were inspired to
 grow our business by all the hard work our parents did when we first came
 to this country. We look forward to continuing our success in the
 interactive advertising industry in that spirit."
     Already in the works at Direct Agents are plans to cultivate their
 ever-expanding reach into foreign markets. With the launch of their UK
 marketing division, Affiliate Response, the company eagerly anticipates the
 opening of its London office by December 2008. In addition, Direct Agents
 aims to commence operations in several other business units while
 continuing its phenomenal year-to-date growth throughout 2008.
