AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenleaf Book Group, a publisher and distributor supporting independent authors and small presses, has been ranked 2,937 on the Inc. 5,000 list of America's fastest-growing companies. This is Greenleaf's second award from Inc. magazine. The company has been named to the Inc. 500/5000 lists for the past five years, including receiving distinction as an Inc. 500 company in 2006, ranking at 224 with a three-year sales growth rate of 562%.
Despite a recession and turmoil in the publishing industry, Greenleaf Book Group celebrated its ninth bestseller this year. The company attributes its success to an innovative author-centric model, which allows authors to retain their rights while giving them a higher royalty structure, competitive distribution, and strong marketing support. Says Clint Greenleaf, CEO of Greenleaf Book Group, "We offer our authors the quality, distribution power, and experience of a major publisher and the ownership and financial advantages of self-publishing." Greenleaf's innovative model appeals to authors and experts looking to use the credibility of a book to build their brand. As a result, Greenleaf has attracted many notable names, including John Gray, Daymond John, and Kanye West.
The Inc. 5000 list serves as an example of the impact private companies have on the economy. The list highlights the fastest-growing private companies, those firms responsible for much of the job and revenue growth that positively affects the market today.
