New York, NY, United States, 2008/05/15 - Direct Agents, an interactive advertising agency, has been named one of the 50 Fastest- Growing Asian-American Businesses by the US Pan Asian-American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation.
Direct Agents will be honored at the USPACC White House Gala later on May 28th in Washington, DC.
The USPACC EF is the largest Asian-American nonprofit association in the United States. Founded in 1984, it aims to promote and stimulate economic growth among Asian-American Business owners. To qualify for the ranking, companies must be owned by one or more Asian Americans (at least 51% ownership), among other eligibility criteria. Based on percentage revenue growth over three years, selection was determined through direct applications and nominations. All finalists and winners were independently verified by the accounting and consulting firm of BDO Seidman, LLP.
Direct Agents’ founders, brothers Josh and Dinesh Boaz, both foreign born Asian-Americans, have remained close to their Asian heritage while pursuing their American Dream. They started Direct Agents in 2003 and have grown the company to realize 50% annual growth since its inception. “We are honored to have been named one of the 50 fastest growing Asian-American Businesses by the USPACC,” says Director, Dinesh Boaz. “We were inspired to grow our business by all the hard work our parents did when we first came to this country. We look forward to continuing our success in the Interactive Advertising.”
