Firm Recognized for Entrepreneurial Success, Business Ethics
PHOENIX (June 6, 2011) — Higher Power Marketing, one of the nation’s leading per-inquiry (PI) advertising agencies, has been nominated for the 2010 Inc. 500|5000 list, Inc. magazine’s annual measure of entrepreneurial success.
The Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over three years. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2007. Additionally, they had to be based in the United States, privately held, for profit and independent. The minimum revenue required for 2007 is $100,000; the minimum for 2010 is $2 million.
“I’m so appreciative of the recognition; even just the nomination is a great tribute to the HPM team.” said Peter Feinstein, President/CEO. “We all work hard to hit a home run in fulfilling our mission of profitably serving the best interests of our media partners, clients, consumers and staff! We’ll see if we make Inc/’s grade a little later in the year. And even if we don’t get a nod from Inc., the nomination alone is a noteworthy achievement our entire team can be proud to own!” Inc. will publish the list in its September 2011 issue and on Inc.com.
Last year, 12-year-old HPM was nominated for a Torch Light Ethics Award from the Better Business Bureau. The award recognizes businesses that maintain a solid commitment to conducting their business practices in an ethical fashion. HPM maintains an A+ rating from the BBB.
When asked to comment, Feinstein said, “It’s a very simple matter for us: We simply do what we say we’re going to do. It’s not that difficult when you have a commitment to doing ‘commerce with a conscience’. The nomination was another acknowledgement to a great team that puts principles ahead of personalities, and sometimes ahead of profits… when it means doing the right thing and keeping our word.”
