Press release from: Earthbound Media Group

IRVINE, CA – Earthbound Media Group is celebrating its place at the top of Inc. Magazine’s recently released and second annual Inc. 5,000 list – an honor roll of the country’s 5,000 fastest-growing, privately held companies in the United States. Creator of the widely acclaimed Inc. 500 hotlist, Inc. selected EMG as the nation’s 811th top entrepreneurial success due to the company’s sustainable growth. EMG was also ranked 45th in Inc.’s list of the Top 100 Businesses in the LA/Long Beach/ Santa Ana, CA, Area and 68th in its list of the Top 100 Advertising & Marketing Companies in the U.S.

“I couldn’t believe it when Inc. first called to let us know we were being considered for the Inc. 5,000 list,” said Damien Navarro, EMG Principal and Chief Visionary Officer. “I’m so proud of my team here at EMG for getting this national recognition. This accomplishment shows that our solid reputation for delivering compelling and successful campaigns, software and media as well as the close relationships we’ve built with our clients over the past few years have all contributed to our ongoing unprecedented growth in an industry that has been dramatically affected by a slowing economy.”

The rankings were determined according to companies’ percentage revenue growth from 2004 through 2007. Additionally, qualifying companies had to be based in the U.S., privately held, independent and have had minimum revenues of $200,000 in 2004 and $2 million in 2007. Small and large companies making this year’s hot list, posted online at, have also been praised for driving the U.S. economy even in spite of the current recession.

“This national recognition is incredible!” said Blaine Behringer, EMG Principal and Chief Operating Officer. “To be among the ranks of so many well-known companies makes this one of EMG’s most distinguished honors to date. It is a testament to our entire team’s hard work and dedication as they persistently strive to deliver the most innovative and impactful solutions for our clients.”

This impressive achievement places EMG among an elite group that over the years has included companies such as Cold Stone Creamery, Jamba Juice, UnderArmour, Oracle and Timberland. Many of these previously underreported companies received their first big break when publicly appearing on Inc.’s prestigious honor roll.

Until the third annual Inc. 5,000 list is announced in 2009, EMG’s company profile will be featured on the Inc. website,, where visitors can also search the complete list on criteria such as industry, city, state and region.
