DENVER, Sept. 6, 2012 -- GroundFloor Media (GFM), an integrated agency focusing on strategic communications, digital and social media strategy, crisis communication and reputation management announced today that it earned a spot on the prominent Inc. 500|5000 list, which recognizes America's fastest-growing private companies. Headquartered in Denver, GFM attributes its growth to its expanding service lines in the crisis communication and digital space and a unique staffing model that employs only seasoned communications professionals.
“The Inc. 500|5000 is a prestigious list and it's gratifying to see our team's hard work receive this market validation,” said Laura Love, founder and president of GFM. “We've been able to thrive during the past several years despite slow economic conditions.

In the past year, the agency has seen double-digit growth in its social media and crisis communication service lines.
