ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On August 16, Inc. magazine released its coveted list of the nation's 5,000 fastest growth companies, and Albuquerque-based ANM made its first appearance on the list, one of only four companies to make the Inc. 5000 in the state of New Mexico. The highly anticipated release offers a glimpse of the most successful companies in America's most dynamic segment—its independent small and mid-sized businesses. Well-known companies that made an early appearance on the list include Microsoft, Dell, Domino's Pizza, Pandora and Zillow. ANM, founded in 1994, has now earned its own spot in the national limelight.
According to Inc., ANM entered the list at 1075, which puts them in the top 20 percent of honorees. ANM reported a whopping three-year sales growth of 394 percent.
"The ANM team takes particular pride in being recognized on this high profile, national list," remarked ANM CEO Raminder Mann. "These are the companies that are innovating, that are leading the way in customer service, and that are inspiring so many others to do the hard work of pushing the boundaries of innovation and technological advancement."
Inc. 5000 leadership concur, reporting that this year's list represents the most competitive crop in the list's history—IT and otherwise. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481 percent. The aggregate revenue of the Inc. 5000 firms reached $206 billion and generated a total of 619,500 jobs since 2013.
"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them."
The statement describes ANM to a tee. Regarding vision, Mann says ANM has had a "big picture" mindset from the start, working with the world's top vendors and pursuing smart growth in response to customer needs. That vision has yielded a plethora of prestigious recognitions in recent years.
In 2016, ANM achieved Cisco Gold Certification. During the same period, Cisco named ANM its Partner of the Year in New Mexico and Commercial Territory Partner for Western United States. In addition, ANM has received consecutive annual recognitions that include CRN® (a brand of The Channel Company) Fast Growth 150, Solution Provider 500, Managed Solutions Providers 500, together with distinctions such as Top Places to Work (Albuquerque Journal). Formal recognitions aside, ANM has proved its stated and long-standing dedication to the customer, achieving an impressive 94.9% Customer Satisfaction rating.
In other strategic moves of note, ANM expanded its offerings a year ago, when it acquired an A/V company (Digital Roads, Inc.). Recently, ANM also strengthened its focus on security by separating its security practice from its core infrastructure—thereby increasing expertise and adding jobs. ANM is now working with its top customers to provide strategic security consulting along with compliance related assessment & remediation.
The annual Inc. 500 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held in October at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, California. Speakers include outstanding entrepreneurs, including former Ford president Alan Mullaly, FUBU CEO and founder and "Shark Tank" star Daymond John, Dollar Shave Club founder Michael Dubin, researcher and #1 NYT bestseller Brene Brown, and Gravity Payments' Founder and CEO Dan Price.
