ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Onyx Group is pleased to announce that it has been ranked on the Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. As a growing firm in the Government Services industry, The Onyx Group ranked No. 2069 on the magazine's fourth annual list and No. 218 in the industry.



The 2010 Inc. 5000, unveiled on, showed that the Government Services sector was the second-fastest-growing sector in terms of median revenue growth, posting a 202 percent gain over the 2006-2009 measuring period. More than half of these companies are based in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.  With a 128 percent growth in revenue over the three-year period, The Onyx Group is honored to be included on the Inc. 5000.  The company has gained its success through creating sustainable land and facilities life cycle solutions, integrating planning, architecture, and technology.

"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."

Despite the fact that most of this year's measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year. This year's Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million people, up from one million on last year's list. With unemployment remaining stubbornly high, policymakers and business leaders will do well to look to the Inc. 5000 companies for fresh ideas on achieving growth and creating jobs.
