ARI Network Services honored by Wisconsin business publication


Marketing software creator ARI Network Services was recognized in The Business Journal’s Top 25 List as one of Wisconsin’s fastest-growing public companies.

“It’s an honor to be included in the Top 25 List this year,” ARI president and CEO Roy Olivier said in a statement. “Despite a sluggish economy in the vertical markets we serve, we have been able to successfully execute on our strategic growth objectives. We have a lot of momentum that sets the stage for sustained, profitable growth and I’m excited about our future. The progress we make every day is a direct result of our employees, customers and loyal shareholders’ hard work and support.”

Milwaukee-based ARI has been on the Top 25 List in four of the last five years, the company said. ARI serves manufacturers and dealers in the marine, outdoor power, power sports, recreational vehicle and appliance segments of the manufactured equipment market.

The Top 25 List is published annually by The Milwaukee Business Journal. All public companies based in Wisconsin with a stock price of $1 or more between February and April 2012 and positive revenue growth from fiscal 2011 to 2012 were considered for the list. Information about the companies is gathered by The Business Journal from annual reports and financial statements.
