The newspaper reports, "New positions will include information technology, sales and member service. The company, which collects consumer reviews on local contractors and doctors, currently employs more than 500 workers in Indianapolis and serves more than 200 cities across the country."
"When word got out that we were outgrowing our space here, we had offers from a lot of places inviting us to relocate," says Hicks. "We gave them serious consideration because we wanted to make a smart business decision no matter what our hearts might want us to do. I want to thank our state and city leaders for helping us stay here on Indianapolis' east side, where our hearts are, and where we'll continue to grow."
In October 2009, Angie Hicks -- who was an economics major and Management Fellow at DePauw and earned an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School -- was honored with DePauw's Robert C. McDermond Medal for Excellence in Entrepreneurship.Back
