Written By AE Staff

ORLANDO, Fla.- On Thursday, December 6th, ActivEngage received the first ever Inc. Magazine Hire Power Award. ActivEngage CEO, Todd Smith, was present in Washington D.C. to accept this award that recognizes private U.S. companies which are continuously creating jobs for Americans.

The title has published the country’s fastest growing companies list, the Inc. 5000, since 1982 (when it was still the 500), and this year, Eric Schurenberg, editor in chief of Inc said, “For more than 30 years, Inc. has paid tribute to the fast-growing private companies that are, and always have been, the heart of the U.S. economy. We honor the struggle, the creativity, and the courage of business owners every month in Inc. Magazine and every minute on But until now, one contribution has never been singled out. That contribution, of course, is job creation — which simply would not exist in this economy if not for the kinds of companies that the Hire Power Awards recognize.”

The Hire Power Awards, sponsored by Bank of America, rank private companies by how many new jobs they’ve added over the past three years. ActivEngage is proud to be listed at number 7 in the 2.5-5 million category. Todd Smith, CEO of ActivEngage, stated, “We’re excited to be recognized at this inaugural event by Inc. magazine and we are proud to have developed an incredible team here in Orlando that continues to grow every month. Our growth is a reflection of how businesses are changing their marketing approach by connecting with website shoppers in real-time.”
