"Growth continues to accelerate at Net Driven -- the company is now parked in new downtown headquarters at the Scranton Enterprise Center.
"Patrick Sandone founded the company, which offers digital marketing solutions to the automotive industry, with three employees in 2007. Since then, Net Driven has doubled in size every year; today it employs more than 60. The new 15,000-square-foot office is about three times the size of the company’s previous space and big enough to accommodate continued growth.
"'We fully renovated the office space, which is now reflective of our technology-driven, Google-esque culture,' explains Sandone.
"The market for Net Driven’s proprietary website and Internet marketing platform is independent automotive businesses who need help competing with big-box retailers.
"'We now have clients in all 50 states, every Canadian province and a few foreign countries,' says Sandone. 'And this year, we’ve signed more clients each month than we sold in our entire first year combined.'
"To keep up with the strong growth, Net Driven expects to hire at a rapid rate, creating as many as 50 jobs within the next year. The company is also continuing to develop products with a strong focus on service centers and new-and-used car dealerships, while releasing new software and software-upgrades on a monthly basis for its clients.
"'Keeping ahead of the technological curve helps our clients to remain competitive, which in turn keeps them utilizing the Net Driven platform to grow their business," he adds. "Our goal is to help independent automotive businesses thrive.'
"Net Driven's revenues have grown by 3,000 percent in the last five years; Sandone’s goal is to double revenue year-over-year. In acknowledgement of that growth, the company recently received a Governor’s Impact Award for Entrepreneurship.
