Inc. magazine has ranked Integrated Mortgage Solutions (IMS), number 434 on its 28th annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. The 2009 Inc. 500 measures revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2005 and, therefore, able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of Dec. 31, 2008. Attainment of this ranking on Inc. 500, which also includes Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, GoDaddy, Under Armour and other world-class companies, represents merited and significant recognition of recent success, but also serves as an important indicator of the continued progressive business approaches practiced by IMS.
“If you want to know which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500,” said Inc. editor Jane Berentson. “These are the most dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones finding innovative solutions to problems, creating smart systems, and inventing products we soon discover we can't live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine’s tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition.”
IMS, which appeared on last year’s Inc. 5,000 list, specializes in protecting the value of their client’s real estate collateral during the foreclosure/default life cycle of a mortgage loan, including events leading up to the foreclosure process. IMS provides asset management services on a third-party basis between the servicer and the borrower and customizes these services to meet the specific needs of each client.
“Inc. magazine and its distinguished lists bestow one the highest honors an entrepreneur can achieve,” said Cheryl Lang, president of IMS. “Being included in the Inc. 500 is a distinct honor for any company, but especially a woman-owned business, such as IMS. Our company’s success points back to the hard work of our staff, as we help mortgage servicers find a solution to the increasing numbers of foreclosures. We are committed to keeping borrowers in their homes and doing our part to restore economic stability.”
