Motivators, Inc. Named One of America's 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies

Westbury, N.Y. August 21,2008 Inc magazine announced today the Inc. 5,000 ranking of the fastest growing private companies in America. Promotional products distributor Motivators, Inc. ranks 1,168 on the list with a growth of 321.2% since 2003. In addition to receiving this prestigious honor, the company was also ranked 93 of the Top 100 Business in New York, New Jersey and Long Island.

"It's an honor to be recognized on the same list that has recognized innovators such as GoDaddy and Microsoft," said CEO Ken Laffer, MAS. "The hard work and dedication of our employees is what brought us to this point, and I'm extremely proud of them for all of their accomplishments." Laffer founded the company in 1979 and introduced in 1995. In 2003, the site re-launched as a completely secure e-commerce enabled portal that allowed customers to complete every step of the buying process online.

In as much as the company is dedicated to providing quality branding solutions to its customers, it's equally dedicated to keeping the portal up-to-date with the latest technological innovations. "Innovation is at the core of our thinking all of the time. Reaching our customers and providing them with extraordinary service from our seamless operation is also a large contributor to our success," says Laffer.

While other industries experienced a slump in the past year due to the slowing economy, the Promotional Product industry has thrived, with sales totaling $19.4 billion dollars in 2007, up 3.5% from 2007. Laffer continues to reach out for more market share. "The industry is large and we do not see companies curbing their appetite for Promotional Products."
