LECLAIRE – For the second year in a row, Inc. magazine has named MindFire Communications one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in America.

The annual listing placed MindFire, an advertising agency, at 3,296th in the country, and 14th in Iowa.

The rankings reflect MindFire's aggressive growth since its formation in 2007 and its three-year revenue growth of 103 percent, according to a company news release.

MindFire recently recently moved to a new site at 126 S. Cody Road, LeClaire that is nearly triple the size of its previous space.

This year's list of Inc. 5000 companies measures revenue growth from 2010 through 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.

For more information, check out MindFire's listing on the Inc. website or contact Lynn Manternach at 855-646-3347.
