Voices Grows by 1,166%, Ranked in Top 100 of 2017’s PROFIT 500 List
London, ON | September 14, 2017
Voices, the largest global online marketplace for voice over talent and audio services, announced today that it has been ranked in the top 100 of the 29th annual PROFIT 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest- Growing Companies by Canadian Business.
Reporting a five-year revenue growth of 1,166% and a rank of 61 of 500 of the fastest-growing companies in Canada, Voices has moved up an impressive 33 spots in the list since 2016, and 65 spots since 2014. For 2017, Voices is in the top 12% of companies ranked nationwide.
This announcement comes after a monumental year for the company, founded in 2005 by David and Stephanie Ciccarelli in London, Ontario, Canada. In January, Voices officially opened its new state-of-the-art office at 100 Dundas Street in London, Ontario. In July, an $18 million investment from Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital was announced, and in August, the company acquired US-based Voicebank.net, a platform for talent and management agents, including those for well-known celebrity talent.
“It may look to some as an overnight success story, but the reality is that achieving such an incredible growth rate is a direct result of years of hard work, strategic decisions, and the pursuit of our mission with laser-like focus,” says CEO and co-founder, David Ciccarelli. “Sustaining such high rates of growth year after year is a testament to the incredible work of our talented team who are fully engaged and aspiring to lead and transform our industry. We are honoured to be ranked with this year’s winners. The entrepreneur’s journey is an uphill climb, and Stephanie and I are inspired by everyone on this list.”

A joint venture between Canada’s premier business and current affairs media brands, the PROFIT 500 is published in the October issue of Maclean’s magazine and online at CanadianBusiness.com.
