Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- TelePacific Communications, a leading provider of business telecommunications network solutions serving customers in Nevada and California, today announced it has been named one of Inc.

"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."

The companies that made the list reported aggregate revenue of $18.4 billion, up more than 34 percent from last year. Most important, the 2009 Inc. companies were engines of job growth, having created more than 55,000, with Telecommunications only second to Government Services in the number of jobs created.
