Accelerated Business Results Ranks No. 3659 on the 2016 Inc. 5000 List with Three-Year Sales Growth of 85%

5000_color-stackedCincinnati, Ohio (September 15, 2016) – Inc. magazine recently ranked Accelerated Business Results (ABR) no. 3659 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. ABR experienced sales growth of 85 percent from 2012 to 2015.

“Inc. celebrates what they call the ‘superheroes of the U.S. economy,’ the fastest-growing private companies, and we’re honored to be on that list,” said Amy Fox, ABR President and CEO. “It is an important milestone for ABR and a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the ABR team. Thank you to all of our clients for your long-term partnership and for challenging ABR to bring our best to every project.”

This year’s Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. 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 Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great—usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held October 18-20 in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.
