“We're excited that even in a difficult 2009 our business model was validated, and we're seeing strong growth for our services throughout the country,” said Hot President Rajan Dev.

Despite the worst recession in recent years, Hot maintained client and team momentum. Deep partnerships were formed with the likes of Cisco Eos, Microsoft, and Zinio, and Hot’s capabilities were deepened, particularly in building out platform expertise in mobile, smart phones, and tablets. As Dev points out, the stage has been set for even further growth at the company.

“We’re so proud to be recognized as a premier growth business, one with offices on the West and East Coast and partnerships with a range of important companies and organizations,” said Hot Founder and CEO Maria Giudice. “We’re capable of posting strong growth numbers because of the exciting work we do across the country. Hot Studio is proud to be on the Inc. 5000 list for all of those reasons.”

Inc. 5000 recognizes companies that have shown outstanding revenue and growth. The rankings are an expansion of the Inc. 500, which Inc. Magazine introduced in 1982. The Inc. 5000 includes the Inc. 500, but digs deeper to offer the most comprehensive look ever at the entrepreneurial engine driving the U.S. economy.
