Seattle Washington (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Strong-Bridge LLC announced it has been placed in the top half of the 2013 Inc. 500/5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy--America's independent entrepreneurs.
Recognized for revenue and job growth, Strong-Bridge ranked # 2108 on the list of 5,000 fastest growing private companies spanning 25 industries. Strong-Bridge ranked #56 out of the top 100 Washington state companies that made the list.
"Make no mistake, the Inc. 5000 was harder to get into this year than ever in its history. The median company on the list increased sales more than 140 percent since the start of 2010, while the average honoree grew a mind-boggling 468 percent. Those are results most companies could only dream of in the economy of the past three years," said Inc. Editor in Chief Eric Schurenberg
According to a recent article in the September issue of Inc. Magazine, one thing Inc. 5000 Companies have in common is performance. "The largest distinction between consumer-facing Inc. 5000 companies and their business-to-business counterparts is that the former thrive by making customers happy. The latter thrive by making customers look great," said Inc. Editor at large Leigh Buchanan
"Customer experience matters," states Ken Simpson, Partner and Co-Founder of Strong-Bridge Consulting. "We've carefully grown our firm through strategic, results-driven engagements that deliver great customer experiences and earn long-term client loyalty. Making the list again this year confirms our consistent focus on the client and their success pays off for both our clients and us."
This year's list measures revenue growth from 2009 through 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent--not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies-as of December 31, 2012. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2009 is $100,000; the minimum for 2012 is $2 million. Revenue figures given in the company profiles are for calendar year 2012. Employee counts are as of December 31, 2012. Full-time and part-time employees are included in the employee counts; independent contractors are not.
