Mark Patrick Media Earns Inclusion on Inc. Magazine’s Annual 500/5000 List Weight-Loss and Smoking-Cessation Coach Mark Patrick Media Lands Solidly Among Fastest-Growing Private Health Companies

The results of the Inc. 500/5000 ranking of America’s fastest-growing private companies are in and Mark Patrick Media has landed solidly on the list. A leader in weight-loss and smoking-cessation programs, the company walked away with a number 66 ranking in the Health industry category and a number 893 placement overall among all businesses recognized.

Barnegat, NJ (PRWeb) December 12, 2010 – When the 2010 Inc. 500/5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony announced its list of America’s fastest-growing private companies this past September in Washington, D.C., Mark Patrick Media earned solid placement. Specializing in weight loss and smoking cessation, the company ranked a robust 66 in the Health industry category and 893 overall. A three-year growth rate of 337% positioned Mark Patrick Media for this recognition.

According to the results of the 2009 Winning Workplaces “Top Small Workplaces” analysis, the average revenue growth rate for American small businesses “is trending poorly.” The findings of this project, which is run in partnership with the “Wall Street Journal,” revealed that the national growth rate “has dropped from 42% in 2007 to 28% in 2009. Mark Patrick Media, a New Jersey business with 14 employees and $2 million in revenue, shattered that trend, recording a three-year growth rate of 337% over that same timeframe. It’s precisely this accelerated growth that has earned the company inclusion on the 2010 Inc. 500/5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies.

Mark Patrick Media, which offers self-improvement products such as weight loss and smoking cessation seminars, has experienced this rapid growth in spite of the brutal recession that has hurt the profit potential of so many other small businesses. Thriving, however, isn’t the only thing U.S. small businesses are grappling with in the midst of the struggling economy. Many are struggling to even survive. Indeed, the U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that 108,300 more firms closed in 2009 than new ones opened.

Mark Patrick, founder of Mark Patrick Media, recognizes how much of an anomaly the company’s success is given the nation’s current financial state of affairs and doesn’t take the Inc. 500/5000 recognition lightly. “We are incredibly pleased to grow our business in this down economy. We believe it is a result two things: delivering great value to our clients and producing favorable, lasting results.”

The trend-bucking businesses named to the 2010 Inc. 500/5000 list were ranked according to their percent of revenue growth from 2006 through 2009. Qualifications for inclusion included being based in the United States, being privately held, and having a minimum revenue of $80,000 in 2006 and $2 million in 2009. Mark Patrick Media earned its slot with a revenue increase of $1.535 million over that three-year time span.
