Liberty Power is the only retail electricity supplier to be named a Hire Power Award honoree. The company was recognized on several Hire Power category lists after generating 184 jobs in total during 2009, 2010, and 2011. Liberty Power placed fifth among the top 10 private business job creators within the energy industry, placed eighth among the top 10 private business job creators within the state of Florida, and ranks eighth among companies with $500M - $1 billion in revenues."We are very proud to be acknowledged as a leading creator of jobs in the state of Florida and the energy industry. Since 2008, despite a credit crunch and a broad economic recession, Liberty Power has created over 200 new, full-time job opportunities and today employs over 300 team members. We are thankful to be in the position where we can help rebuild the job market, as we continue to grow the company," said David Hernandez, co-founder and CEO of Liberty Power.

Inc. is the only major business media brand aimed solely at CEOs of fast-growing private companies. The Hire Power Awards appear in Inc.'s December/January issue, as well as on the brand's website, www.inc.com. The inaugural Inc. Hire Power Awards are sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, which is proud to recognize American companies that have greatly increased their workforces.

"The top 100 companies on the list have created 73,032 American jobs in the three-year period from year-end 2008 to year-end 2011 – an amazing feat, given that much of that job growth came during the heart of the recession," explains Inc. editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg
