Rainmaker is very proud to be on the list of America’s fastest-growing private companies for three years in a row.

The Rainmaker Group, a world leader in automated profit optimization software and services for the multifamily housing and gaming/hospitality industries, is pleased to announce it has again earned a spot on Inc. magazine’s elite list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This is the third year in a row that Rainmaker has received this honor. Behind this year’s No. 2698 ranking was the Atlanta, Ga.-based firm’s remarkable 130 percent revenue growth, up 15 percent over its triple-digit percentage from a year ago.

In his letter to Inc. 5000 honorees, Eric Schurenberg, Inc.’s editor-in-chief, said that making this year’s list “was harder to get into than ever in its history.” Rainmaker has joined many other fast-track brands on this year’s distinguished list, including Gogo, Living Social, HubSpot and OtterBox. Rainmaker and all these companies now share a pedigree with a lot of other high-profile companies and recent alumni, including Zappos, Intuit, Under Armour and Pandora, to name a few.

“Rainmaker is very proud to be on the list of America’s fastest-growing private companies for three years in a row,” said Bruce Barfield, who, along with Tammy Farley, co-founded and are principals of The Rainmaker Group. “We believe we’re a ‘regular’ on this list for a number of reasons. First, we foster a culture designed to attract capable, customer-centric professionals who are given a high degree of individual responsibility. Ours is not a ‘group think’ culture, but rather a ‘best idea’ culture; a culture of learning and adapting and being nimble. And it doesn’t matter where the idea comes from. What matters is, ‘do your ideas and solutions meet customer needs and satisfy customer wants?’ When these cultural principles are in place and when we continue to get the kind of buy-in we’ve traditionally gotten across our enterprise, our growth has occurred naturally and organically. Of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t also acknowledge our great customers. It is a privilege and a pleasure to serve them and we share this honor with them.”

The Inc. 5000 companies, including The Rainmaker Group, are profiled on and will be celebrated at the 32nd Annual Inc. 500|5000 Conference and Awards Ceremony to be held October 10-12, 2013, at the Gaylord National in Washington, D.C.
