Inc. Magazine Names The Cellular Connection among America’s Top Job Creators

The Cellular Connection, the largest Verizon Premium Wireless Retailer in the U.S., announces today it was ranked No. 41 in Inc.'s Hire Power Awards listing, which recognizes small and mid-sized businesses that have generated the most jobs during the past three years.

TCC generated 482 jobs from 2008 to 2011 with a total number of 1,256 employees.

The Inc. Hire Power Awards listing comes on the heels of TCC ranking No. 1,294 on the Inc. 500|5000 listing of America’s fastest-growing private companies for the third consecutive year. The company’s revenue increased from $137.4 million in 2008 to $466.2 million in 2011.

“We are honored to be recognized by Inc. as a leading job-creating company and for our role in producing employment opportunities in the retail industry,” said Scott Moorehead, president and CEO of TCC. “Our employees are truly the backbone of our business; they’re the reason we’re able to continue to grow and add new positions. As we continue to expand, our focus will remain on being a family-focused company that’s dedicated to its employees.”

Inc. is the only major business media brand aimed solely at CEOs of fast-growing private companies. The top 100 Hire Power Award winners nationwide will appear in Inc.'s December/January issue. The brand's web site, www.inc.com, adds winners within regional and industry categories.

"The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 jobs in the three-year period from 2008 to 2011 - an amazing feat, given that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession," explains Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. "And it isn't just the big guys that are adding jobs. Companies with less than $50 million in annual revenue make up nearly one-third of the Hire Power list."

The inaugural Inc. Hire Power Awards are sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which is proud to recognize American companies that have greatly increased their workforces. Inc.'s Hire Power Awards celebrates private companies on the forefront of American job creation, giving these businesses the recognition they deserve.
