Inc Magazine has expanded their top 500 fastest growing business to include an additional 4500 and guess what? My brother's company E and E Exhibit Solutions in Phoenix has made the list – coming in at 4099!
The Inc. 5,000 includes the Inc. 500, but digs deeper to offer the most comprehensive look ever at the entrepreneurial engine driving the U.S. economy
The selected businesses will be honored at a convention in Chicago where Bill Clinton will be the guest speaker.
My baby brother, Daniel Chaddock, started his business over ten years ago and has grown from an office in his car to a beautiful 11,000 square foot building and a full complement of staff members. He started selling exhibits for businesses to use at conventions and now has a complete graphics department enabling them to offer brand development and design from logos to marketing materials to exhibits.
Needless to say, I'm very proud. Here's what INC has to say:
No. 4,099 E&E Exhibits
Industry Advertising & Marketing
2003 Revenue $1.7 million
2006 Revenue $2.6 million
What it does: Sells high-quality trade show displays and graphics.
Why it's growing: Has doubled sales staff, and increased online advertising online and advertising in five or six trade magazines.
What's noteworthy: When Daniel and Cynthia Chaddock started the company in, AZ, Daniel sold exhibits out of the back of his car. Today their clients include Microchip, Inter-Tel and ColdStone Creamery – and they've traded in their car for office space.
Congratulations to Dan and Cynthia!
