NEW YORK, Wednesday, August 14, 2019 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Kenway Consulting is No. 4495 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, and No. 20 in IT Services. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“To be named to this prestigious list alongside so many other impressive companies is a true honor, but it wouldn’t be possible without Kenway’s extremely talented employees and their passionate focus on means over outcomes,” said Brian King, president and CEO, Kenway Consulting. “At Kenway, we believe that by focusing on doing what’s right, on treating people great, and on doing what we absolutely believe is the right thing for our clients, positive outcomes take care of themselves. This award is an outcome of our employees’ hard work day in and day out, and their commitment to always helping our clients and each other. I couldn’t be prouder.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
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 www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” said James Ledbetter, Inc. editor in chief. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
