Innovative company is ranked 222nd overall fastest growing company in the U.S.

The downturn in the economy is making 2009 a challenge, but we are on track to break 100 percent growth in revenue.

Inc. magazine has ranked The Knowland Group No. 2 in the Travel category and 222 overall on its 28th annual Inc. Fast 500/5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.

Growth has been the norm for The Knowland Group, even through tough economic times. In fact, 2008 was the fourth consecutive year that the firm achieved more than 100 percent growth.

Michael McKean, CEO of The Knowland Group, attributes the company's triple-digit success to three core interrelated values: adding client value, providing great customer service and innovating at a relentless pace. "What we've learned as we've grown is that customer service can never be static. Just as we innovate in the products and services we offer; we are constantly innovating and improving our customer service," says McKean. "We have spent thousands of man-hours improving back-office systems to make sure client concerns are answered, in some instances, before they arise."

Will The Knowland Group's four-year triple-digit growth streak continue in 2009? As of today, McKean says yes. "The downturn in the economy is making 2009 a challenge, but we are on track to break 100 percent growth in revenue." The company has also launched Target Net, which has the potential to be game changer in the industry and generate growth.

Innovation and growth is what the Inc. Fast 500/5000 is about. "If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. Fast 500/5000," says Inc. Editor Jane Berentson. "These are the most dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation."

The 2009 Inc. Fast 500/5000 will be featured in the September issue of Inc., on newsstands August 17. Details are available now at
