Columbia, MD (PRWEB) August 23, 2013
Phoenix TS, an IT training and certification center headquartered in Columbia, MD, is honored to announce their standing as the 1,870th fastest growing private company in America as identified by Inc. Magazine.
How to Make the List
For over 30 years, Inc. Magazine has been releasing the list of America’s fastest growing, most innovative and privately held companies under the Inc. 500. In 2006, the magazine expanded this list to the top 500|5000, and since then it has included such impressive names as Under Armour, Microsoft, Zappos, Pandora and many more.
In order to rank on the Inc. 5000, a company’s revenue growth and number of jobs created over the past three years is examined. Companies on the list were founded and generating revenue as of March 31, 2009 and had generated a minimum of $100,000 by the end of 2009. In addition, to qualify, companies must be based in the United States, privately held, for profit and independent (this being as of December 31, 2012). They also needed to earn minimum revenue of $2 million by the end of 2012.
Phoenix TS’ Ranking
Since 2009, Phoenix Technology Solutions has:
- Witnessed a 204% growth in revenue and
- Increased its number of employees from 3 to 15
These growth rates secured Phoenix TS’ ranking as not only #1,870 on the inclusive Inc. 5000 list but as #26 on the Top 100 Education Companies, #60 on the Top 100 Maryland Companies and #25 in the Baltimore Metro area.
Phoenix TS CEO Ben Tchoubineh said this about the Inc. 5000 achievement, “I am so unbelievably proud of my team at Phoenix TS. We have come so far during the past three years as we have grown from a company of three to now fifteen employees. Phoenix TS could have never achieved this honor if it wasn’t for all of their hard work. We are all very excited to keep moving forward on this path and continue to grow.”

Inc. Magazine first debuted in 1979; however, the first Inc. 500 list of America’s fastest-growing companies wasn’t released until 1981. Since then the Inc. 500 list has grown into an exclusive club comprised of America’s most innovative and rapidly growing companies. To accommodate additional deserving businesses, Inc. expanded its list in 2006 to name the top 5000 companies in the United States, with the 500 list being at the top of it. Through the years, this list has been among the first to identify the now well-known and impressive names of Under Armour, Pandora, Patagonia, Microsoft, Oracle, Zappos, Jamba Juice and much more.
