Irvine-based Local.com was ranked No. 191 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 list. This is the second straight year Local.com has received the recognition. The prestigious inventory ranks North America company’s in the technology, telecommunications, life sciences, clean technology and media industry. Local.com was recognized based on its 492 percent revenue growth between 2006-2010.
"We're honored to be included in the Deloitte Fast 500 for the second straight year,” said Heath Clarke, Local.com chairman and chief executive officer. “Our growth is the result of our team's commitment to delivering leading local media products for consumers, SMBs and our channel partners. I thank Deloitte for their leadership in recognizing America’s fastest growing companies.”
Over the last five years Local.com has experienced rapid growth – reaching more than 25 million consumers each month. In addition to its flagship site, the firm also has nearly 1,500 regional media platforms. In the last month Local.com launched an additional advertising source called Exact Match. The company boasts the new program will help businesses connect to local “ready-to-buy customers.”
"Local.com, like all 2011 Technology Fast 500 companies, has excelled in fostering innovation and channeling it into spectacular growth -- against the backdrop of one of the most challenging economies in history,” said Eric Openshaw, vice chairman and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader, Deloitte.
