August 24, 2009 — A Web development firm in New Hampshire is making a big splash lately, surviving and thriving outside of the big city. CommonPlaces e-Solutions, located in Hampstead, New Hampshire, has been receiving national recognition for their work. Most recently, they appeared at number 446 in Inc. Magazine's Inc. 500 list, an annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States.

"We believe that they are setting the benchmarks for the industry as a whole."

CommonPlaces e-Solutions specializes in open-source Web development, website design, and Internet marketing for businesses, government agencies, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations. Their appearance in the Inc. 500 marks CommonPlaces President and CEO Ben Bassi's second time on the Inc. list, appearing in 1993 as a VP of North American Sales and Business Development for Object Design.
