Firm Makes List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for 7th Straight Year

ATLANTA, Georgia – September 16, 2014 – Insight Sourcing Group, the premier management-consulting firm focused exclusively on procurement, announced today that it has been recognized by Inc. Magazine for the seventh consecutive year as one of the fastest growing companies in the United States. The annual Inc. 500|5000 is an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Insight Sourcing Group’s impressive growth placed it at 2,635 on this year’s list, with revenue increasing nearly 143% since 2011.

“Starting with our ranking as number 228 on the 2008 Inc. 500 list and now with our 7th year in a row on the Inc. 500/5000 list, our growth and success can be attributed to three things,” said Tom Beaty, founder and CEO. “First, create a fantastic client-focused value proposition with a measurable ROI, and then deliver it with passion and a commitment to the pursuit of excellence for the sake of excellence. Second, attract the absolute best and brightest and retain them by creating a great place to build a career. Finally, recognize that even great services become obsolete so never be satisfied and always innovate.”

The 2014 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2011 to 2014. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2012.
