WEST HARTFORD, CT, August 16, 2017 – IT Direct would like to announce that Inc. magazine has named IT Direct to its exclusive “Honor Roll” of Inc. 5000 companies, in recognition of its designation as one of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the fifth consecutive year, an exceptional feat.
Fewer than a tenth of all Inc. 5000 honorees – an already select group – ever achieve this milestone through a consistent high-growth trajectory that places them on the elite list for five years or more, putting IT Direct in rarefied company. Inc. magazine just released its 2017 Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Private Companies.
Inc. magazine ranked IT Direct # 4401 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“Making this list once is a major achievement, but being able to do this 5 years in a row is truly amazing. It is no exaggeration to say that this award and recognition truly belongs to the entire IT Direct team for their combined work and determination to drive value to all our clients. Thank you to our growing list of clients who trust us with their I.T. networks and computer support needs. We look forward to continuing to grow with you and helping you use technology to reach your goals,” said founder, and President of IT Direct, Ari Santiago.
The 2017 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years.
“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held in October at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as former Ford president Alan Mullaly, FUBU CEO and founder and “Shark Tank” star Daymond John, Dollar Shave Club founder Michael Dubin, and more.
