3/16/2011 San Francisco, CA – Améredia, the San Francisco-based multicultural advertising agency, was selected on March 9 as a “Top 10 Asian American Business in California” by the US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Western Region.

Améredia was joined by other notable companies from the technology, communications and engineering sectors that required at least 51 percent Asian American ownership to qualify for the Top 10 ranking. Selection was determined by percentage revenue growth over three years and finalists were independently verified by A2Q2, a California-based accounting firm.

“Our California Top 10 Asian American Business Award recipients exemplify the aspirations, innovation and perseverance which are the stock that built the American Dream,” said Susan Au Allen, National President and CEO of USPAACC. “Along their journey to success, they have also contributed to the economic vitality, job creation and now serve as role models for aspiring entrepreneurs in the business community. We are mighty proud of them.”

USPAACC National named Améredia a Fast 50 Asian American Business in 2010, and earlier this year the agency was selected as a Top Business in America by DiversityBusiness.com, winning five awards including “Top 100 Diversity Owned Businesses in California” and “Top 100 Subcontinent Asian American Businesses in the U.S.”

The recent milestones underscore Améredia’s continued growth since its inception in 2003, and add to the agency’s running list of industry-wide recognitions such as the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications’ Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards and the American Design, Communicator, Hermes, Mark and TELLY awards, among others.
