ATLANTA, Georgia – August 25, 2016 – Inc. magazine today ranked Insight Sourcing Group for the ninth straight year on its annual Inc. 5000, the prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment: its independent small businesses.

Insight Sourcing Group, the leading management consulting firm focused on helping its clients achieve total cost optimization through procurement-related services and best practices, appears on the list for the ninth year in a row having posted a three-year sales growth of 77%.

“2016 marks our ninth straight appearance on the Inc. 5000 list starting with our ranking as the 227th fastest growing company in 2008. As the company founder, this is truly an honor and point of pride for me personally,” said Tom Beaty, CEO of Insight Sourcing Group. “Sustaining growth at this level for a firm of our type requires strong long term client relationships and a great team that delivers consistent results. We are fortunate to have both in abundance.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433 percent.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Editor-in-Chief and Inc. President 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.”
