Cie Games Only Game Developer Included on the Distinguished List
LONG BEACH, California
Cie Games, an innovative social game developer and creator of leading automotive-based Facebook game Car Town, today announced that it is included on Forbes’ prestigious list of “America’s Most Promising Companies.” Cie Games ranked 47th among companies representing a broad range of industries, and is the only game developer to be included in the distinguished list.
The list ranks the top U.S.-based, high-growth, privately held companies that exemplify compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners and precious investment capital.
“We're very proud to receive this recognition from Forbes,” said Justin Choi, president and CEO of Cie Games. “Our entire team has worked hard to create the growth we experienced in 2011, and 2012 will be another exceptional year. We're looking forward to continued growth and success in the coming years."
To identify “America’s Most Promising Companies,” Forbes teamed with CB Insights, a Manhattan-based data firm that identifies and tracks high-growth, privately held companies. Using CB Insight’s Beacon software, Forbes was able to evaluate company-specific measures (such as employee turnover and customer sentiment) and industry factors (like growth rates and merger activity), combining them to create a ranking that accurately reflects a company’s health.
