ST. PETERSBURG, FL JUNE 25, 2014 – Squaremouth, a travel insurance comparison site headquartered in St. Petersburg, has been named a finalist in the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Fast 50 Awards. This announcement comes on the heels of two other recent national and local accolades the company has received for both its excellence in customer service and its unique company culture.
The Fast 50 recognizes the 50 fastest growing, privately held companies in Tampa Bay. Finalists were determined by accounting firm Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP, based on annual revenue growth. This is Squaremouth’s third time being recognized as a Tampa Bay Fast 50 company. They will learn their final ranking on July 24.
This is the latest in a series of awards the local company has received. Earlier this month, Squaremouth was nationally recognized by the American Business Awards for Customer Service Team of the Year and accepted a Silver “Stevie” Award in Chicago. Over 3,300 companies were nominated for the Awards. Other finalists included Capital One, who won gold, along with Allstate and John Hancock who won bronze.
In May, Squaremouth was named one of Tampa Bay’s “coolest” office spaces by the Tampa Bay Business Journal for their unique office in downtown St. Petersburg, FL. The company, who was named one of INC. Magazine’s 5000 fastest-growing privately-held companies in the US in 2013, has once again been named a finalist in the INC. 5000 and will find out where they fall on the national list in August.
“There is a direct correlation between these awards” said Squaremouth co-founder and CEO, Chris Harvey. “By giving our employees an environment that they want to work in, they are able to give our customers incredible customer service. Their dedication has been validated with Squaremouth’s recognition as one of the country’s best customer service teams as well as one of the fastest growing privately-held companies in Tampa Bay and in the nation.”
Squaremouth has grown from $1 million in sales in 2006 to almost $13 million this year, with an annual revenue growth of over 24%.
