BB&E Named to the Prestigious Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies

NEW YORK, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- BB&E, LLC, a leading provider of civil and environmental engineering consulting services, today announced that the company was named to the prestigious Inc. 5000 list, a compendium of the most entrepreneurial and fastest-growing private companies in America.



BB&E Senior Partner Douglas Barber commented on the award: "BB&E is excited to be named one of the fastest-growing companies in America.  Being placed on the Inc. 5000 list is an honor and a testament to the tireless efforts of our employees to consistently put our clients first.  While we are thrilled with the opportunity to be named on the Inc. 5000 list, we recognize that it would not be possible without the loyal support of our clients and the hard work and dedication of each and every BB&E Team Member." This year, BB&E placed in the Top 60% of the Inc. 5000 list, with a three year revenue growth rate of 76%.  

The Inc. 5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Music website Pandora, convenience store chain 7-Eleven, Brooklyn Brewery, and Radio Flyer, maker of the iconic children's red wagon, are among the prominent brands featured on this year's list.  "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. The effects of the recession are seen, however, in the median three-year growth rate, which dropped to 96 percent from last year's 126 percent. 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.
