REDMOND, Wash., March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Citing a 75 percent revenue growth last year, and the firm's disruptive approach to management consulting, Consulting Magazine named ARRYVE one of its Seven Small Jewels for 2011, making the company one of the fastest to reach the award in history.

"We started ARRYVE with a vision and a lot of work to do," said Chris Stephenson, ARRYVE partner and co-founder. "Less than four years later, ARRYVE is known for top quality consulting, smart, savvy solutions that disrupt business as usual and being a company that clients and colleagues alike want to work with."

The annual Seven Small Jewels list recognizes the top seven up-and-coming consulting firms making their mark on the consulting industry.  In ARRYVE's profile, Consulting Magazine said the company "isn't your typical consulting firm" and recognized that ARRYVE is building a "new approach to consulting, relying on the best of what the big firms used to be known for—methodology, talent, results—and what the newer, more boutique firms do well—personalization, low overhead and flexibility—to create a new hybrid consulting model."  Consulting Magazine's full profile on ARRYVE is available here.

Chris Smith and Chris Stephenson founded ARRYVE with a first-of-its-kind hybrid approach to management consulting that is now taking off across the industry.  The name ARRYVE was chosen to signify both a starting point and a destination as the company continues to enhance its service offerings, serve its clients with a deeper level of engagement and expand into new markets.  The company has demonstrated year-over-year growth since inception, continually invested in staff growth and development and enhanced its benefits and training initiatives to ensure ARRYVE employees remain best-in-class business engineers.
