GeoLinks Makes Inc.5000
“Myself, and the entire GeoLinks’ team, are thrilled to have achieved this incredible recognition,” said GeoLinks’ CEO Skyler Ditchfield. “It’s crazy to think that I started GeoLinks out of my home in Ojai, California back in 2011. However, even from the beginning, I’ve always known that we’d go big and disrupt the industry. While many have congratulated our success along the way, I’ve always known that the best is yet to come. We’re on track to grow another 100%+ this year, and plan to maintain this trajectory for the next five years, and beyond. I want to thank the entire GeoLinks team for their outstanding contributions in accomplishing this company milestone. Without each and every one of their hard work, dedication, and passion for innovation, we wouldn’t have gotten to where
we’re standing today.”
The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com is the most competitive crop in the list’s history.

and I believe them.”
