Since our founding, we have shown continuous improvement year over year, largely due to our ability to turn ideas into reality at lightning speed. Our talented team of professionals is key to our phenomenal growth, and the passion they bring to every project has fueled that growth.

Pillar Technology, part of Accenture (NYSE: ACN), an industry-leading software consultancy known for solving complex problems through exceptional digital solutions, has been named to the 23rd annual Columbus Business First Fast 50, the prestigious ranking of the region’s fastest-growing private companies. Ranked #29, Pillar was selected due to its impressive double-digit percentage growth over the last three years. This is the 7th year that the company has been included on the list. Honorees were recognized at an awards luncheon on Oct. 17 at the Hilton Columbus Downtown.

“We are extremely proud to be included as a Fast 50 company and pleased to be recognized for the expertise we bring to our market segment,” said Bob Myers, Pillar Technology’s co-founder and Managing Director. “Since our founding, we have shown continuous improvement year over year, largely due to our ability to turn ideas into reality at lightning speed. Our talented team of professionals is key to our phenomenal growth, and the passion they bring to every project has fueled that growth.”

Pillar’s past client work includes creating an autonomous vehicle virtual driver for a leading American automaker; enabling precision farming for an international agricultural leader; and creating next-generation infotainment solutions for a Fortune 25 automaker. Currently, Pillar has been tasked with building the Smart Columbus Operating System, the data framework at the heart of the smart city movement in Columbus, Ohio. Pillar has also been awarded a grant by JobsOhio to build an autonomous vehicle research and development center in Central Ohio to accelerate advanced mobility efforts.

“This is outstanding recognition for Bob and his entire team, and underscores why Accenture identified Pillar Technology as a leading digital innovator and made them the newest member of the Accenture Industry X.0 team,” said Craig McNeil, managing director and head of Accenture X.0 for N. America. “We’re looking forward to continuing to integrate Pillar’s expertise and solutions into our capabilities to deliver even greater business value for our clients.”

In August 2018, Accenture acquired Pillar Technology, a move intended to expand the company’s Industry X.0 practice. Accenture Industry X.0 helps companies address the shift to digital products and services, transform their engineering, manufacturing and field operations, and digitize their enterprises.
