Highland Solutions, the Chicago-based software consultant and development firm, announced it had been ranked No. 2466 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy--America's independent entrepreneurs.
"We are pleased and humbled by our inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list and will use this moment as both a motivator and reminder of the good work we need to deliver on behalf of our clients each day," stated Jeff Nixon, president and chief operating officer at Highland Solutions.
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a three-year growth of 490 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years.
"The story of this year's Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top," says Inc. president and editor-in-chief Eric Schurenberg. "You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don't achieve that kind of success by accident."
"Our growth over the last few years has been fueled by our desire to listen to our clients well and deliver valuable solutions for them. It's our ability to create a great experience for our clients through understanding and leading them well that will be at the center of our future growth," said Nixon.
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from Oct. 21 through 23, 2015 in Orlando. 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 at inc.com/inc5000.
