Interviewer: Hi, I’m Gail Nichol-Kailing, Senior Editor at WhatTheyThink.com and I'm here today with Moe Farsheed, who is the President and CEO of Mind Fire. Moe, I want to congratulate you on your tenth anniversary.
Moe Farsheed: Thank you very much. It’s very exciting in these difficult times to be around 10 years.
Interviewer: Exactly. Exactly. And make it through the ten years. But that’s not the only recognition that we’ve got to give you. You’ve won an award recently. The Inc. 500?
Moe Farsheed: Yes. We were -- actually due to our customers, the success of our clients we were very excited to hear for the second year in a row that we were recipients of the Inc. 500, fastest growing companies. And again, I can’t reiterate the importance our clients, that’s how we make our money, our client success is our success.
Interviewer: Right. Right. Now award though really gives you credibility in the industry as well; doesn’t it?
Moe Farsheed: I think that’s an important point, because we are in difficult times, financial times, and I think name recognition, making sure that you don’t make a mistake, getting it right the first time is critical to service providers, printers that are doing their best to thrive in this very difficult time. And so I think the right name recognition, the fact that we have been able to grow is -- clients have been able to grow, it really gives us credibility that I think is required in this space.
Interviewer: Absolutely. Thank you.
