The unprecedented organic growth of Nexus this past decade was only possible due to the vision and effort put forth by our employees, customers and strategic partners.

Nexus IS, Inc. (“Nexus”), a leading global provider of professional, cloud and managed services for advanced IT solutions, moved forward 584 places to number 2,844 on Inc.’s 500|5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The ranking, in its 33rd year, is the result of business performance analysis of privately held U.S. businesses. Nexus has been included in the list for six consecutive years. This year Nexus’ strong three-year sales growth, a primary metric in determining the rankings, was 130%.

“The unprecedented organic growth of Nexus this past decade was only possible due to the vision and effort put forth by our employees, customers and strategic partners,” said Waheed Choudhry, Nexus President & COO. “The investment we’ve made in our Cloud and Managed Services offerings has unquestionably contributed to our success and positioned us as a premier provider of these solutions.”

This years’ Inc. 5000, as in previous years, is filled with highly competitive and highly profitable businesses. The aggregate revenue of companies on the 2014 list is $211 billion, with a three-year growth average of 516%. These companies also generated 505,000 jobs over the past three years, according to the publication. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early market exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.

"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix, AZ. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show “The Profit” Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.
