NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jordan French, the five-time serial entrepreneur and cofounder of marketing and reputation management firm Status Labs earned the firm rankings on both Inc. Magazine's list America's Fastest Growing Companies and The Business Journal's Fast 50. For both rankings the company's growth was measured from 2012 through 2015, during which time French was CEO and COO of Status Labs.
Jordan French is part of the leadership team at FOWNDERS, the social-impact startup accelerator founded by Millennial Mentor, Gerard Adams. French also founded O'Dwyer's-ranked Notability Partners and is a cofounder, director, adviser and member-manager of Status Labs as well as cofounder of real-estate data services firm BNB Shield, the cofounding chief marketing officer of BeeHex, Inc. 3D printing. French is a startup and real-estate investor with investments ranging from financial technology to augmented reality. French left Status Labs in September 2015 to found celebrity branding firm, Notability Partners and to cofound 3D food printing pioneer, BeeHex, Inc.
Regarding the awards from both Inc. Magazine and The Business Journals French said, "It's phenomenal to see the service firm I built outpace software and product firms with its ranking. Much is owed to a strong, gritty and hard working team--many of whom are no longer at Status Labs. They will never get enough praise." At one point the firm had an office in San Francisco that closed in 2013, with the firm consolidating around French's operations in Austin, Texas. "At one point I was working nearly 18 hour days and managing several hundred client accounts myself before we assembled a proper account management team," says French. "I wanted to see success. If we needed to raise money-- typically a requirement among start ups--my approach was to 'just sell more' and not give away a piece of the company."
Regarding French's work, Brian Garcia, COO of Notability Partners said: "Jordan's work ethic is uncanny. He also sees opportunities that others simply do not and then executes on them--and quickly."
Steve Meyer, cofounder of Sunbelt Computer Systems and Techstars-Austin mentor said of French: "I have been most impressed by Jordan's ability to generate publicity and create promotional opportunities for the company. His energy and connections seem almost limitless. There is no doubt BeeHex's market visibility and name recognition has been a direct result of his efforts on the company's behalf. He has also impressed me by how receptive he has been to feedback and new ideas from myself and others on the team. BeeHex's marketing has definitely benefited from his efforts."
In October 2016 French attended the Austin Business Journal's Fast 50 awards ceremony in Austin, Texas. Earlier in 2016, BeeHex was nominated for Vice Magazine's award for Best New Tech with CIO Magazine naming Jordan French a top "growth hacker."
