Inc. magazine’s Hire Power

#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

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

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.
