Icon (formerly VoiceFriend) Ranks No. 3513 on the 2022 Inc. 5000 Annual List

Today, Inc. revealed that Icon is No. 3513 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy's most dynamic segment-its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

"Icon is honored to be recognized on this year's Inc. 5000 list," said Ryan Galea, CEO of Icon. "As the aging population continues to grow, we are excited to provide intuitive technology that enhances overall wellbeing and independence."

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.

"The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated," says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. "Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today."

Announced in June of this year, VoiceFriend, provider of the leading HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based communication platform for senior care orgaizations, acquired Caremerge's family and resident engagement business.

"As we look to expand our market presence, we are thrilled to welcome the Caremerge engagement suite to the VoiceFriend product family," said Galea. "Caremerge is known for delivering easy-to-use solutions that enhance engagement with seniors and their families. In addition to their world-class platform, they have an excellent culture which will meld well with ours."

The combined company is known as Icon and couples VoiceFriend's omni-channel communication technology capabilities with Caremerge's all-in-one engagement platform to empower families, residents, and staff with enhanced communication and engagement for senior living communities and skilled nursing facilities.
