BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Aug. 31 Advanced Health Media LLC. (AHM), the leading U.S. provider of meeting logistics, speaker programs and commercial compliance management software for the pharmaceutical industry, announced that it has been named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in the country for the 4th time in 5 years.
The 2009 Inc. 500/5000 list measures companies' 3-year revenue from 2005 through 2008. With more than 318% growth during that period, AHM ranked #955 on the overall list, which represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy, America's entrepreneurs.
"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."
In addition to Advanced Health Media's overall ranking, the Company landed in the Top 100 in several important categories within the Inc. 5000 list.

"Landing on the Inc. 5000 list is a real honor," said Kevin McMurtry, Founder and CEO of Advanced Health Media. "I'm proud to have my Company recognized among so many innovative organizations and talented entrepreneurs, but I am most proud of AHM's consistent growth. Advanced Health Media has now made the list 4 times in 5 years and for that I must congratulate and thank all our employees for their dedication and unwavering commitment to continuous improvement."
As a New Jersey-based firm with a customer list comprised primarily of pharmaceutical marketers, McMurtry observed that, "The last few years have at times been difficult for our customers in the pharmaceutical industry and as a result, change and adaptation have been almost constant for AHM during the past few years. We chose to partner with our customers, at times making sacrifices and always focusing on delivering more value and helping our clients achieve their goals. We chose to define success one customer at a time and that choice has helped us retain nearly all our clients, win many new ones, and even grow our top and bottom line despite the pressures on our industry and our customers."
