ABJ 2014 Fast 50 : FreightPros Growth Among Top in Austin

The Austin Business Journal have released their annual Fast 50 list for 2014 and guess what? FreightPros was included! Yeah! Nailed it! You can read all about the details here, but generally speaking the Fast 50 list profiles the fastest growing companies in the Austin/Central Texas area. They’ve split the results into 25 small companies and 25 larger companies, and FreightPros clocked in at #11 in the large company category. It’s a real honor to be represented among other Austin businesses such as BuildASign.com and here at FreightPros it’s good to see all of our hard work for the year pay off. As a celebration for we got invited to a gala at the AT&T Conference Center. This was not your typical celebration; this was a GALA. Evan, Maya, Larry, Matt, and Ashley represented the team, got some free food, made some good conversation, and did their best Jay Gatsby impressions (GALA) on what turned out to be a wild Thursday night. We talk a lot about “company culture” and “Austin culture” here at FreightPros (especially on this blog) and this is just another step in our process of growth and (relative) freight harmony. Austin is a great place to live and work (save for the crap Austin traffic) so it’s a real pleasure and honor to be recognized for our achievements in the local business scene. Austin is growing quickly, and we’re happy to be growing along with it. This makes our second inclusion in a list of this kind including the Inc 5000 List 2014! Congrats to all of the local companies recognized this year. We’ll keep our eyes on the prize here at FreightPros and look to make the list in 2015 as well.
