La Crosse business honored for growth for 4th consecutive year

Authenticom recognized as one of the nation's fastest growing private companies for the 4th consecutive year

Authenticom was recognized for the fourth consecutive year by Inc. Magazine as one of the nation’s fastest growing private companies. Authenticom is one of only 497 to have achieved this honor four times.

Authenticom manages data for car companies and dealerships across the U.S. and is headquartered in La Crosse. It was founded in 2002 and works with over 26,000 franchised and independent automotive dealerships daily.

Since 2010 Authenticom has increased its revenue over 400% from $3.5 million $18.9 million. Starting off with a handful of employees they have been able to add 77 jobs over the past five years and have quickly become a major employer in the area.

Authenticom was also recently recognized by President Barack Obama during his visit to La Crosse when he praised the company’s family values and fair business practices.

Founder and CEO Steve Cottrell says, “We are honored to receive the Inc. 5000 award for four consecutive years and our vision is to continue leading the industry by developing services that meet the needs of our clients. We cannot grow our business without first helping our customers grow theirs.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring Authenticom will be held in Orlando, FL.
