Every company ranking on the Inc. 5000 list signifies a story of sacrifice and success
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (PRWEB) August 19, 2019
Inc. Magazine ranks LMK Clinical Research Consulting (LMK) as the 903rd fastest-growing private company in the United States on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Premiering on the Inc. 5000 at 903rd position with $2.8 million in revenue, LMK has achieved an extraordinary 470% revenue growth over the past three years. Less than seven years ago, LMK began as a solo consulting business when President and CEO of LMK, Sholeh Ehdaivand, identified an industry-wide opportunity to transform the trial master file (TMF) with modern tools and modern processes. Since then, Sholeh has grown her vision to transform the TMF into the unshakable foundation of every clinical trial. This dream has come to fruition, through LMK’s industry-unique TMF education program (TMF University), proven quality systems, and unparalleled expertise. Entering a new era of growth, LMK has contributed to the success of hundreds of clinical trials and has become a foremost provider of TMF expertise to the life sciences industry.
“Every company ranking on the Inc. 5000 list signifies a story of sacrifice and success,” says Sholeh. “For LMK, celebrating its debut on the Inc. 5000 list, our ranking is, of course, the product of our explosive 470% revenue growth, but the true source of our success lies in the astounding personal and professional growth of our team. The business and regulatory landscape of the life science industry is constantly changing. Even as the LMK family has grown, we have continued to build our skills together and are always striving to reinvent the concept of TMF health. Having such a passionate, nimble, and dynamic team, I believe, will continue to accelerate this success. I cannot wait to see what we accomplish next.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
