Five9 Ranks 61st on the San Francisco Business Times’ 2010 List of Top Private Companies
PLEASANTON, Calif. – October 25th, 2010 – The San Francisco Business Times has ranked Five9 sixty-first on its annual list of Top 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies. The San Francisco Business Times presented the prestigious award to Five9 at a ceremony last Wednesday at the San Francisco Union Square Hilton, and the newspaper published the list in a special edition distributed at the event.
This year’s list ranks privately owned Bay Area-based companies by revenue growth for the three-year period from 2007 to 2009 – a difficult time for many Silicon Valley companies. Throughout the measurement period, Five9 experienced significant revenue growth as its customer base doubled and its user base more than tripled.
On receiving the award, Mike Burkland, CEO of Five9, said, “We are pleased to be recognized by the San Francisco Business Times as one of the fastest growing private companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, arguably the world’s most prolific and prosperous region for technology innovation. Inclusion of Five9 in the list underscores our leadership position in the on-demand call center software market. Our consistent revenue growth over these past several years has been fueled by record levels of new customers choosing Five9’s on-demand software solution over traditional premise-based solutions. As one of the largest companies on the list, we are proud of the fact that we achieved this growth while at the same time remaining profitable.”
Five9 pioneered the on-demand call center software market in 2001 and continues to grow and enhance its product platform to deliver reliable, scalable on-demand call centers quickly, at a cost of ownership far lower than traditional premise-based solutions. Five9 is headquartered in Pleasanton, California, and, in addition to ranking in the Top 100 list, Five9 ranked 21st in the San Francisco Business Times’ sub-grouping of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the East Bay.
