RESTON, Va., Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine today ranked HighPoint Global number 26 on its 34th annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. HighPoint was also ranked number 1 on the Government Services list and number 1 fastest growing in the Washington D.C. area.
HighPoint achieved 8,123% growth between 2011 and 2014. This organic growth was fueled by contract work with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide training, strategic consulting, and support to customer service teams.
The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino's Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.
"It is exciting to be ranked so high within this prestigious group of growing, entrepreneurial companies," said HighPoint CEO Ben Lanius. "A huge thank you to the HighPoint team who are committed every day to helping our customers improve the way they communicate and interact with citizens."

(available on newsstands August 18 to September 22) is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%.
