We are excited to share that Zipwhip ranked number four in PSBJ’s annual ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in Washington! The annual list, released today, ranks companies based on their growth over a two-year period. Between 2015 and 2017, Zipwhip grew revenue more than 428 percent and expanded headcount by more than 280 percent, from 51 employees to 196. We’ve continued to hire rapidly in 2018, including the addition of key executive roles like Scott Heimes as Chief Marketing Officer, Bob Chamberlain as Chief Financial Officer and Kirsten Spoljaric as Senior Vice President of People.
The top five list included companies in a wide array of industries, ranging from real estate to biotech:
“We’re honored to be named in the top five with this impressive group of Washington companies,” said John Lauer, Zipwhip CEO. “We are on a mission to text-enable every business in North America, and this award shows we’re getting closer to that. I’m so proud of our amazing team – they are the ones working day in and day out to make Zipwhip the de-facto business texting software.”
The ranking includes private companies that are headquartered in WA and recorded revenue of at least $500,000 in 2015.
