HEROES OF THE U.S. ECONOMY

Inc. magazine’s Hire Power Awards recognizes America’s leading job creators

MIRACORP ranks #11 for Arizona job creation over the past 18 months

New York, NY (October 28, 2013) – Phoenix-based MIRACORP featured in the 2nd annual Inc. Hire Power Awards, recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past 18 months. MIRACORP generated 24 jobs from January 1st, 2012 to June 30th 2013, placing it among the top 15 private business job creators within Arizona.

“MIRACORP is very proud to be part of this list and honored to be called a ‘Hero.’ During this economic crisis, we have been very fortunate to illustrate how a small business can truly put America back to work,” said Cynthia Reed – President/CEO

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that only 222,000 full-time jobs were added in 2012—compare those numbers to the honorees of Inc. magazine’s HIRE POWER AWARDS, which created 69,182 jobs between January 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. Small to mid-sized companies just like MIRACORP could hold the key to restoring America’s economic vitality.

For the second year in a row, we are pleased to recognize the employers who are putting Americans back to work for a second time,” says Eric Schurenberg, Editor-in-Chief of Inc. “The HIRE POWER AWARDS are the only awards that single out job creators. We think it’s fitting to pay tribute to company founders not just for their business prowess, but also for their immense contribution to the welfare of U.S. workers and the vitality of the U.S. economy.” 

MIRACORP is among the 437 private growth companies that are HIRE POWER AWARDS honorees, leading the way in creating more American jobs.

“At Bank of America Merrill Lynch, we understand the vital role of small and mid-sized businesses in the local economy,” said George Smith, head of Business Banking, Bank of America Merrill Lynch.  “And we are proud to partner with Inc. to sponsor the Hire Power Awards to recognize these business leaders.”
