American Hometown Media Receives Second Inc. 5000 Recognition

NEW YORK, August 14, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that American Hometown Media is No.3976, and in the top 5 of the digital consumer media category on its annual Inc. 5000 list. The list represents the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

Mike Meyers, President & CRO for American Hometown Media stated, “We placed in the Top 5 when compared within our sector of media. That means our suite of next-generation products and services focused on content, monetization, and technology is really making impact.”

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth when realizing that this recognition period covered the year during the world-wide Covid pandemic.

“What a statement for our company not only to receive this acknowledgement two years in a row, but achieving this year’s recognition through the pandemic which so negatively affected so many economies and companies,” said Dan Hammond, Founder, Chairman & CEO.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2021 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands.
