LyonsCG Ranks in the Inc. 5000 Two Years Running
CHICAGO – Inc. magazine today ranked Lyons Consulting Group on its third annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Lyons Consulting Group experienced three-year sales growth of 76.3% achieving a ranking of 3,326 on the national list. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy-America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Consumer electronics maker Vizio, Internet giant GoDaddy, rental car service Zipcar, and beverage maker Honest Tea are among the prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
“We’re thrilled to be included in this list two years running,” said Rich Lyons, president and founder of Lyons Consulting Group. “I believe our unparalleled customer service, coupled with superior technical and business expertise, is the main reason for our sustained growth over time.”
“Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate,” said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. “That’s why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year.”
The 2009 Inc. 5000, unveiled today on Inc.com, serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding, making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found on Inc.com.
