General Information Services, Inc. Named One of America's Fastest Growing Private Companies

GIS Earns Spot on 2010 Inc. 5000 Listing

CHAPIN, S.C., Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- General Information Services, Inc. (GIS), a leading provider of background screening services, has been awarded a spot on the Inc. 5000, an exclusive listing of the fastest growing private companies in America published by Inc. Magazine.



In order to be awarded a spot on the fourth annual Inc. 5000, companies must have been founded and generating revenue since June 2006 and must have experienced significant growth between 2006 and 2009 – through the recession that began late in 2007.

"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. President, Bob LaPointe.  "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."

According to Ray Conrad, owner and CEO of GIS, "GIS has been able to continue our growth since 2006 because of our dedication and customer service. We are wholly dedicated to our clients' needs with a focus on custom solutions instead of a general approach that does not work for everyone. GIS will continue to customize our products in order that they help provide success to our growing list of clients."

The full Inc. 5000 list provides a comprehensive look at America's independent-minded entrepreneurs and features companies from the music website, Pandora to the convenience store chain 7-Eleven and beyond.

Along with being a member of the esteemed Inc. 5000, GIS is also a provider to many of the companies who have found a home in the ranking.
