Fast 50

Linda T. Kennedy

September 1, 2008


There’s no sensationalism when we say our first Fast 50 finishers bolted out of nowhere to become phenoms in their respective industries. What’s their secret to success? Read closely and you’ll notice more similarities besides skyrocketing revenues, such as taking a problem and finding how the solution could translate into revolutionary products and tools. Mixing that with innovative work environments and management methods have taken these small start-ups to the winner’s circle in no time at all. 1. Interbank FX (IBFX.com) If one success story could illustrate the old adage, “It takes one to know one,” it would belong to Interbank FX (IBFX.com) Chairman and President CEO Todd Crosland. As one broker trying to find a better way to trade currencies directly, instead of through a broker dealing desk, Crosland is now a virtual pied piper leading more than 27,000 other brokers, individual traders, fund managers and institutional customers in 140 countries through its proprietary technology and revolutionary approach to Forex trading. And company representatives say Interbank’s growth is about 2,000 new clients a month. “A dealing desk inflates the banks’ currency quotes, which Todd felt was not a fair business practice,” says Corbin Layton, IBFX public relations specialist. “As Todd found success with his unique model, individual traders began to take notice and asked to be a part of it.” IBFX’s model goes directly to its banking partners to obtain quotes, giving its customers, according to Layton, the most accurate and fair prices, something not previously found in the retail foreign exchange industry. Last year, IBFX announced its multi-bank liquidity feed, which provides its customers access to liquidity and automatically executes trades with seven of the world’s largest financial institutions, including Bank of America, Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. “Because of the strong relationship that exists between IBFX and our liquidity providers, banks have a stronger incentive to provide our platform with deep liquidity, meaning faster and simpler trade execution for our clients,” says Crosland. Developing his online brokerage firm, though, meant large personal and financial risks for Crosland since he set out seven years ago with a lack of know-how and familiarity with the foreign exchange industry. “There wasn’t a blueprint on how to start an online brokerage,” says Crosland. He purchased $100,000 worth of software that didn’t work and invested $500,000 of his own private capital before seeing any revenue. Crosland’s years fine tuning the tech-nology and relationships with IBFX banking partners, though, resulted in a net revenue leap of $33.3 million dollars from $104,509 in five years, a record even for Wall Street standards. And accolades are resonating his success, including the Best Foreign Exchange Broker at the 2007 Shares Awards in London. “Like any entrepreneur, there was always the chance that his venture would fail,” says Layton. “Perhaps the biggest obstacle and risk of all was abolishing what the industry saw as the most profitable tool - the dealing desk. By doing so, Todd proved he could find both success and run a fair business.” IBFX’s vision includes plans to turn the company into an FDIC insured national bank and refining their trading technology and execution with hopes of being placed within the top three retail Forex brokerages in the world. 2. Skullcandy While riding on a Utah ski resort chair lift, equipped for a day of snowboarding and listening to music on his headphones, Skullcandy founder Rick Alden’s cell phone rang. He began a frantic search for his phone while removing his gloves and headphones to answer the call and that’s the moment an audio technology company, which has become a lifestyle brand with a cult-like following, was born. Five years later, the company that designs headphones combined with hands-free cellular technology, is experiencing revenue growth to the tune of 400 percent and with their business plan, they’re not slowing down. “The scenario (on the chairlift) reminded Rick of a trip to London on the Tube, where he noticed passengers experiencing the same moments of chaos as they attempted to make the transition from music listening to answering calls,” explains Skullcandy President Jeremy Andrus. “He thought to himself, ‘It can’t be that difficult to integrate your music and the use of cell phones.’” Knowing that music is a big part of the sports culture, Skullcandy maintains its role as an innovator to the core surf, skate and snow audiences in the U.S. and 50 countries. But the company is also broadening its reach into the fashion and entertainment industries by teaming up with well-known leaders and personalities such as DJs Clinton Sparks and Frankie Bones. Andrus says their booth at the 2006 Snow Industry Association (SIA) show in Las Vegas became a hangout for listening to top DJs spinning throughout the day. “Our strong growth is attributed to the fact that we have built a brand that resonates with our consumer and their lifestyle.” 3. Mindshare Technologies John Sperry, Mindshare CEO and Richard Hanks, president and chairman say General George Patton’s philosophy of, “Violent execution of a good strategy will beat good execution of a great strategy every time,” connects with their success. The team put it to work five years ago when they asked their 10-member staff to consider working without pay. A strategy that could’ve been debatable as being good or great then, resulted in revenue growth more than eight times (733 percent) in three years and gaining Fortune 500 clients, (Marriott, Hertz, McDonald’s Capital One, etc.) who are utilizing Mindshare Technology’s business monitoring tools. “Each employee decided to go without pay in hopes that the single large interested customer (Great Clips Hair Salons) would sign in time to get the company off the ground,” says Hanks. “They signed three months later and asked if they could pay in advance.” Great Clips signed on for a technology that allows them to capture real-time customer feedback. Data is captured and transformed into targeted reports that can be pre-scheduled for automatic email delivery, and/or accessed 24/7 on the Web. In October 2005, the company started paying back almost $850,000 in deferred salaries to the original staff that are still there, and now they’ve been entirely compensated. Additionally, Mindshare is producing more than $650,000 per month in reoccurring revenues, has 33 employees, zero debt and clients in more than 25 industries. “We collect surveys from 67 countries in 14 languages,” says Sperry. “We’re looking to build a long-term stable company, not a ‘turn and flip.’” 4. CLEARLINK Ask CLEARLINK CEO Phil Hansen for his business card and you’ll find his name on it, but not his title. “We only have titles in the outside world,” Hansen says. Inside the world of CLEARLINK, a marketing and sales firm that creates customer acquisitions for premium consumer brands, Hansen says a non-traditional, open management style is one of the most innovative things about the company. “We try to abolish hierarchy around here because it slows people down, creates undo pressure and fear and stifles the creativity,” he says. Hansen says he found that great ideas come from people throughout the business, so people in every rank within the company are called into management meetings. “You’ll find some brand new account managers in our meetings and vice presidents that have been here for a while [in the meetings],” says Hansen. “People just aren’t as willing to offer their ideas when their boss is standing over them.” The style is working for them, since CLEARLINK experienced revenue increases of more than 8,000 percent within the first three years of business and they’ve only been at it four years since Odyssey Web, a local Web development agency merged with iDish Network to become CLEARLINK. Now CLEARLINK is forming marketing relationships with brands like ADT Home Security, DISH Network, DIRECTV and Quest, as well as formulating consumer brands. Hansen says the unusual management style generates “completely non-traditional” marketing methods that don’t include television, radio, direct mail or newspaper. So what are they? Hansen says the tactics stay in the boardroom. “The fact that they’re secret is what makes them work.” 5. Revinetix Revinetix CEO Thomas Hogan says his business was “just a typical start-up, garage shop operation” and his virtual office meant using Web cams for phones. But it wasn’t long before it was growing enough to expand his worksite and the Olive Garden fit the bill. “Well, you can only fit so many in a garage or basement after a while and people get hungry, you know,” reminisces Hogan about the early days which weren’t really that long ago. It was five years ago that Hogan, with Revinetix Chief Scientist Steve “Max” Ackerman and a few engineers, set out to meet the specific data protection challenges of small to medium-sized organizations with software that would include features such as application level support for email and SQL, deduplication, and the ability to archive and off-site critical data via disk as opposed to tape. The result is a turn-key, all-in-one appliance that comes installed, configured and ready for deployment within existing IT infrastructures, as well as a ten times increase in their ASP and 300 percent revenue growth in one year. Hogan says central to Revinetix technology and market approach is the Disk2Disk2DiskTM or D2D2DTM (D3) backup philosophy, claiming that reliance on tape as a final step in taking data offsite is becoming “obsolete”. “Against all odds, each of us believed we could develop a better backup solution by building a centrally managed software application and bundling into a disk-to-disk-to-disk RAID configuration,” says Hogan. “The market has confirmed that belief.” 6. Fishbowl Inventory While a growing number of employees are working at Fishbowl, they’re definitely not working in one. You won’t find these workers trapped inside a closed professional environment. “We are very innovative in our hiring and personnel management,” explains Fishbowl Inventory CEO David Williams about the company that provides mid-market level inventory control, manufacturing and distribution software that integrates with QuickBooks. “With our open door policy, we thrive on innovation and contributions from every position in the company. Everyone in the company helps create a win-win agreement that establishes their relationship with the company and in each agreement, a flexible structure is put in place that empowers each employee to contribute to the utmost of his or her abilities.” Those contributions have resulted in near tripling revenues leaps year-over-year since 2004. According to Williams, Fishbowl Inventory is the number one requested software package from the more than 400 available on the market. Fishbowl originally created an inventory control system for a local medical equipment company that specializes in rebuilding nuclear cameras. After the QuickBooks platform was opened to third party developers seven years ago, the company expanded focus and development efforts to the advanced inventory needs of QuickBooks users. “One reason for our success is in the crucial functionality gaps that we bridged for QuickBooks users,” says Williams. Success probably also has to do with sticking out the rough beginnings. And how did they come up with the name Fishbowl Inventory? “We wanted to create a software that allowed companies to look at all of their inventory all of the time from anywhere,” says Williams. “We decided that’s how it is with a fishbowl.” 7. Heritage Web Solutions Even though Heritage Web Solutions President and CEO David Aitken could’ve resisted the risks associated with putting all the company’s resources into online marketing, he did his due diligence and not only realized a 3,443.1 percent growth in revenue in three years, but also launched the culture of the company. “Our ‘even though’ culture removes any opportunity for our staff to provide excuses associated with not hitting their goals,” explains Aitken about the company, which provides services in custom Website design, hosting, programming and marketing and database management. “Instead, we tell them no matter what, we can find a way to solve the problem. Then our staff knows they can tell us how they accomplished their goals ‘even though’ their challenges could’ve derailed their projects.” While most companies call it incentives, Aitken’s personable “celebrations” are helping his 200 employees and 500 contract workers manage monthly sales of more than 1,000 Websites, ranking the company 22nd, and first in Utah, on the 2007 Inc. 500 list, with goals to move into foreign markets. From kneeling down by his employee’s desks with a one-on-one thank you to taking them to lunch and giving out cash and product rewards, Aitken’s celebration budget includes more than $25,000 in cash bonuses for his staff. “We don’t wait until the final goal is reached to celebrate,” explains Aitkens. “As they overcome each step towards their goal, we celebrate. And the more problems, the more celebrations because in our eyes the more there are challenges, the more they had to overcome to reach their goal.” 8. Doba From the shores of another business, Doba CEO Jeremy Hanks spotted a wave on the e-commerce tide and jumped on. It was at the tail end of running an outdoor products online marketplace, GearTrade.com, that Hanks and fellow employees Dave Gray and Brandon Williams founded Doba. “GearTrade helped us see the challenges specialty retailers face with inventory as a limiting factor, so we springboarded from that into Doba,” says Hanks. Doba’s Inventory on Demand Platform is designed to simplify virtual B2B commerce for retailers and suppliers. Currently, the software helps manage and enable drop shipping for more than 20,000 retailers and 300 wholesale suppliers and is used to transact millions of dollars of B2B commerce annually. “We’re trying to apply the strategy of a two-sided network effect/marketplace business to the world of supply and retail in consumer products,” says Hanks. The efforts are resulting in revenue increases of more than 3,000 percent since the company started in 2002 and rankings such as first on the MWCN (MountainWest Capital Network) Utah 100 and 23rd on the 2007 Inc. 500 list, as well as being named as a finalist for the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year award this year. Hanks says taking advantage of trends in e-commerce means being in the right place at the right time. “We have a lot of work left to do in order to accomplish what we set out to change in the way the companies who make products can get them to the companies who sell products so that the consumers have more choices,” says Hanks. “We’re just getting started.” 9. Access Technology Solutions Access Technology Solutions grew from the simple question, “How do we get from point A to point B?” Chris Boyle, president and CEO, was trying to sell and ship products to Japan and simply wanted a more cost effective way to ship small parcels than large shipping companies were providing. He needed a system that would enable them to make bulk shipments to Japan, but clear customs and deliver as individual personal imports. In 2003, Boyle brought together a team that understood the intricacies of international commerce, and using Web-based technologies, developed a system to open foreign markets to U.S. products. Since then the company has experiencedan average 250 percent revenue growth year-over-year,with an 800 percent jump between 2005 and 2007. “After developing this system we realized that many small- to medium-sized businesses faced the same problems we did, and that the solutions we developed could benefit them as well,” says Boyle. Now Access is a leading technology and logistics provider helping retail, e-commerce and direct selling companies sell their products in international markets. What Boyle started as a Japan-only solution, has successfully implemented across Asia and Europe with plans to launch their e-commerce shopping portal into additional countries as well as offer more import/export related services to and from China, Korea and the E.U. While the rising cost of fuel has challenged Access, Boyle says it has also been a catalyst to help them develop more innovative solutions to manage the international supply chain. “There is a very strong international demand for U.S. products,” says Boyle. 10. Silver Creek Development While entrepreneurs and star status personalities are creating their brand of success, Silver Creek Development President and CEO Geoff Granum is creating a place for them to hang their hat at the end of the day. Or in their case, it could be after many days, since most of his clientele are people on the move. “One thing that’s a premium to our clientele is time,” explains Granum. “We have structured our company around a clientele that can spend zero time, if they wish, on the finish design work of their home or business.“ Granum’s idea to bring tailored services and time saving features to both private and commercial high-end clients in Utah created a following, which includes pro and Olympic athletes, as well as top business owners in the United States, after he modeled his work with his own home at the 2004 Utah Parade of Homes. Now Granum’s team assembles high-end interior and exterior appointment considerations, from custom theatre rooms to computerized lighting systems, and travels wherever his clients are for their approval. “As far as choosing materials and any other finish work, they don’t need to decide that,” explains Granum. “They give us direction and we keep putting boards together until they’re satisfied.” Satisfied clients have caused Silver Creek’s revenue to swell by 500 percent since 2004 and garnered the company numerous awards and acclaim, including the title of Number One Homebuilder in the state of Utah by Sandow Media and the Leading Custom Homebuilder Book Series. And new projects in California, Arizona and Hawaii are, as Granum says, “stretching Silver Creek’s legs into a broader, more diverse market segment, style and culture.” 11. thomasARTS Full service marketing and advertising agency. “Fearless ambition to go after business that may seem too large for a former mom-and-pop shop in Farmington has led thomasARTS to where it is today…the management of the agency has never been afraid to dream big — and as the agency gets larger, so do the dreams.” -Dave Thomas, founder 12.
