Network Automation, Inc. Ranks in Inc. 500|5000 for 3rd Consecutive Year

Founder’s Return to CEO Drives Record Profits in Company’s 10th Year

Los Angeles, September 9, 2013

Inc. Magazine today ranked Network Automation, Inc. NO. 4491 on its seventh annual Inc. 500|5000, 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 entrepreneurs.  Unified Payments tops this year’s list.

“We are reinvigorated about the growth of our company and honored to be named amongst other leaders in the technology industry,” said Dustin Snell, CEO and Founder of Network Automation, Inc. “After eight consecutive years of growth and three years on the Inc. 500|5000, we continue to make strides and lead the industry.”

Since 2004, Network Automation, Inc. has pioneered the business process automation industry with its AutoMate products. In January, 2013 the company announced its best quarter on record, with year-over-year revenue growth of 47 percent in Q4. With a three-year growth rate of 51 percent, the company’s growth is poised to continue in its 10th year in business.

The start of Q4 2012 also marked the return of company founder Dustin Snell as CEO. In January 2011, Snell moved to the role of Chief Software Architect and CTO to be more actively engaged in product strategy and technical concept for the AutoMate products.  With a product roadmap now re-energized, Snell is resuming as CEO to expand Network Automation’s growth in the automation market, which is seeing rapid integration of virtual and cloud environments alongside traditional on-premise systems.
