Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 05, 2017
The Women Presidents' Organization (WPO), in partnership with American Express, has announced that Pinnacle Group is once again one of the fastest-growing women-owned companies in the United States. This year marks the third consecutive year Pinnacle Group has been named to the WPO’s 50 Fastest Growing Women-Owned/Led Companies List™, sponsored by American Express. Named this year’s second fastest-growing company, Pinnacle Group took the top honor as the country’s fastest-growing women-owned/led company in 2015 and was second-fastest in 2016. Of the over 11 million women-owned businesses in America, Pinnacle Group has continued to stand out due to its substantial revenue growth over the last five years. During this time, Pinnacle Group has seen revenue quadruple and has exceeded $1 billion dollars in gross revenue, under Chairman and CEO Nina Vaca’s capable leadership.
“It is an honor and pleasure to recognize Pinnacle Group as one of the 2017 50 Fastest Growing Women-Owned/Led Companies™ in America, sponsored by American Express. It's a testament to the dynamic leadership of CEO Nina Vaca that Pinnacle Group has placed first or second for the third year in a row,” said Dr. Marsha Firestone, President and founder of the Women Presidents' Organization. “Women business owners and leaders are vital to enterprise growth and a thriving economy. Under Nina, Pinnacle Group has grown to become a world-class entrepreneurial success story. Both Nina and Pinnacle Group are inspiring women to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.”
“It’s thrilling for Pinnacle Group to be recognized among this year’s impressive group of companies. I commend the WPO and American Express for their wonderful work in supporting our success,” said Vaca. “Women are essential to our country’s economic growth. We not only drive trillions of dollars of consumer spending but also contribute over 1.5 trillion to the U.S. economy through women-owned enterprises. When we thrive, America thrives. We are a key part of the rising tide of success uplifting our companies, communities, and country.”
