Utah Does Well on Inc. 500/5000 List

Di Lewis

August 23, 2012

Local companies are leading the way in entrepreneurship and business development with 79 Utah-based businesses making the 2012 Inc. 500/5000 list.

The list ranks the country’s fastest-growing private companies. Despite the state’s small size, Utah’s business-friendly culture is highlighted by its strong companies.

Campus Book Rentals was not on the 2011 list, but made a strong debut at No. 17 on the 2012 list.

Other businesses saw big jumps from last year. MediaFORGE went from No. 1092 to 55, which CEO Tony Zito said feels like an awesome accomplishment.

“It’s very rewarding because when you’re building a business and you’re focused highly on client satisfaction and innovation, you sometimes forget to look around and remember what you’re creating in the process,” he said.

Zito said the company’s growth is tied to many things, such as having good employees and being positioned well in its market. Many companies have shifted their money from traditional to web-based advertising, which has been a big part of mediaFORGE’s success. “We picked the right market and the right time and have the right product to address it,” he said.

The company has grown organically and exponentially, Zito said, and he doesn’t see signs of slowing anytime soon.
