Company is among the fastest growing in America
WASHINGTON, Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Inc. Magazine named Corner Alliance Inc. to its 2013 5000 List of the Fastest Growing Companies in America for the second year in a row. Inc. Magazine announced its list on Aug. 20.
Corner Alliance, based in Washington, D.C., was founded by Ron Prater and Alan Pentz in 2007 and has shown steady growth in a highly competitive government consulting market that has seen shrinking budgets due to sequestration.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by Inc. Magazine again this year, particularly given the challenges facing the government services industry and the competition we faced to get on Inc.'s 2013 list," said Prater.
"The Inc. 5000 was harder to get into this year than ever in its history," Eric Schurenberg Editor in Chief of Inc. Magazine wrote in his congratulatory letter. "The median company on the list increased sales more than 140 percent since the start of 2010, while the average honoree grew a mind-boggling 468 percent."
Pentz attributes Corner Alliance's success to its staff's ability to help clients solve problems. "Many of our clients are working on high-profile projects that keep them up at night," he said. "We focus on alleviating their pain points and helping them to thrive in a difficult environment."
The Inc. 5000 announcement coincides with another important milestone for Corner Alliance. The company is moving to new office space at 1620 L Street, NW, Suite 200C, Washington, D.C., in September to accommodate its growing staff. The company doubled its staff from 11 in 2012 to 22 in 2013.
Job creation is one the hallmarks of Inc. 5000 companies. The companies included in the 2013 list have a combined job creation of more than 400,000 employees over the past three years. In a stagnant economic environment, the median growth rate of 2013 Inc. 5000 companies remains an impressive 97 percent.
"Now more than ever, we depend on Inc. 5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is," Schurenberg said.
The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy -- America's independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
