Capstone IT, nationwide provider of specialized IT staffing services and technology solutions, is delighted to announce their ranking in Inc. magazine’s 2020 Inc. 5000, the most prestigious list 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 business. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We’re honored to be recognized by Inc. magazine in what has turned out to be a truly unprecedented year,” comments Jim Richards, President at Capstone IT. “We remain deeply committed to our relationships with our customers, consultants, and partners and have taken significant measures to ensure that our growth only strengthens these relationships. I’m humbled and proud that despite the circumstances of the current pandemic, our team continues to focus on how we can better serve the people we work with through the power of technology.”
The pandemic has provided a unique opportunity to assess priorities and gather new insight and perspective into Capstone IT’s position in the marketplace and how its continued growth sets the trajectory for the future. As a result, the company is excited about its recent strategic efforts to strengthen their brand by launching a redesigned website and reinforcing their values and purpose through refreshed messaging. This branding project lays the foundation for their goals to expand both their staffing and solutions services to wider markets and dig deeper with their technology partners to enable true transformation for their clients.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million 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 annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leads of our generation.
