In a month where economic growth, job creation and national business policy are being hotly debated, our Founder, CEO and Fearless Leader, Samantha DiGennaro, attended the Inc. 500|5000 Conference in Phoenix, Arizona to recognize and celebrate the important contribution privately held small businesses provide to the economy – and most importantly to accept an award for DiGennaro Communications making the 2012 Inc. 5000 list for the second consecutive year.
And we’re in good company; fellow advertising and marketing classmates include TargetCast, Zambezi and TRIS3CT, while nationwide we sat alongside admirable brands such as Yelp, apparel company Life Is Good and non-profit organization charity: water.
Inc. magazine’s exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies is in its sixth year and is comprised of America’s fastest growers spanning all industries, states and revenue brackets.
So how does a business land on this prestigious list? Just having a bumper year does not necessarily secure you a spot — Inc. looks at a set of criteria that includes sustained revenue growth over a three year period and, of course, you must be a U.S.-based, privately owned entity. Solid growth really is that defining factor that sees a business play an essential role in the broader economy.
“We would not be recognized today without the hard work and dedication of our amazing team and wonderful clients,” said Sam DiGennaro, CEO and Founder of DiGennaro Communications. “I look forward to the continued growth of the agency.”

We caught up with MNI’s Vice President of Digital, Matt Fanelli, at OMMA’s first Tablet Revolution Conference on June 6 in Manhattan and asked him about the best ad campaign he’s seen deployed on a tablet device so far.
Matt moderated a panel at the conference titled, “Not the Web and Not the Phone – Ad Networks Find a Place at the Table.” The conversation focused on major mobile and Web ad networks and how the oversized touch screens on tablet devices influence creative marketing messages and business models. The panelists were: Tom Limongello, VP of Marketing, Crisp Media; Jesse Marmon Haines, Group Marketing Manager, Mobile Ads, Google; and Marcus Startzel, SVP, Sales, Millennial Media.
What’s your take on the best tablet ad campaign to date?
