Zutano Named to 2007 Inc. List of the Fastest Growing Businesses

CABOT, VT--(Marketwire - September 20, 2007) - Inc. Magazine has ranked Zutano Inc. number 4,580 on its first-ever Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. Magazine's annual Inc. 500 list, catches many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.

"It's an honor to be recognized by Inc. as one of the fastest-growing businesses for 2007. I credit our continued success to our exceptional creative team, dedicated staff and the support that we receive from a vast network of independent specialty retailers," said Michael Belenky, Zutano founder and CEO.

Since its beginning in 1989, Zutano's founders, Michael and Uli Belenky, have been designing, manufacturing and distributing fine quality, natural fiber children's clothing, accessories, and plush toys. Zutano cooperate headquarters are located in the hills of Cabot, Vermont. Zutano has become a model for small businesses across the nation and an industry leader in the Children's Apparel market. They also support their corporate culture with unique programs such as allowing their employees to bring their babies to work for the first year of life.

In an ever-changing marketplace Zutano has stayed ahead of the curve through the development of unique and different prints, seasonal product collections and fashion forward designs specifically created for babies and young children.

Zutano is distributed nationally and internationally in the boutique and specialty markets. Zutano is working to keep independent businesses alive by offering a vast selection of products that are supported through joint marketing campaigns with retailers, merchandising programs, exceptional customer service and creative branding efforts. Zutano continues to experience steady growth year by year.
