NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NEW YORK, August 23, 2011 - Inc. magazine today ranked Synapse Marketing Solutions (Lancaster, PA) No. 396 on its 30th annual Inc. 500, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America’s independent entrepreneurs. Synapse joins the ranks of Microsoft, Zappos, Clif Bar, Oracle and many other well-known names that gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.

"It’s an honor to have been recognized on the Inc. 500 list.  It proves that - with dedication, hard work, and creativity - a team of people can achieve great things together, even during tough economic times.  My accolades go to my team and our loyal clients.  I’m very proud of what we’ve created together," says Bobby Deraco, Synapse’s founder and CEO.

"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is," says Inc. magazine Editor Jane Berentson.
