Agile Ranks No. 863 on the 2011 Inc. 500|5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 359%

New York; August 29, 2011 – Inc. magazine today ranked Agile NO. 863 on its fifth annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.  The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy-America's independent entrepreneurs. Online retailer ideeli tops this year's list. Agile joins Spirit Airlines, television maker Vizio, Honest Tea, and Dunkin Donuts, among other prominent brands featured on this year's list.

In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2011 Inc. 500|5000 companies remains an impressive 94 percent. The companies on this year's list report having created 350,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $366 billion, up 14 percent from last year.

"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward.  Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is," says Inc. magazine Editor Jane Berentson.

Agile CEO Tricia Dempsey is pleased to make the list for a third consecutive year stating, "Agile's extreme growth in the past three years is a testament to the importance of meeting client demands and providing exceptional customer service. To move from 1,207 last year to 863 this year speaks volumes about how Agile does business. We are so honored to have such committed and loyal partners."
