File sharing site YouSendIt is having an awesome year and its CEO Brad Garlinghouse just gave each employee an iPad Mini to show them his thanks.
If they already owned a Mini, or didn’t want one, they were offered a Beats by Dre headphones instead. From the picture of happy employees below, looks like the Mini was a very popular choice.
Garlinghouse joined the company in May. Last month he shared growth numbers: YouSendIt has 37 million registered users, which makes it the No. 2 file-sharing service after Dropbox, which has about 100 million users. (He was making a point about his direct competitor, Box, which also sells file sharing to enterprises. Box earned itself a big fat $1.2 billion valuation this year with its 14 million users.)
Garlinghouse expects YouSendIt’s revenue to nearly double this year, from $35 million in 2011 to a range of $55 million to $60 million in 2012.
Here’s a picture posted to Instagram of the happy employees, from David Robinson, YouSendIt’s vice president of design.
