Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine ranked Corporate Technologies No. 2,362 on its third annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. Corporate Technologies ranked number 41 in Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, MN-WI Metro Region. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy--America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Consumer electronics maker Vizio, Internet giant GoDaddy, rental car service Zipcar, and beverage maker Honest Tea are among the prominent brands featured on this year's list.


"Savvy trend spotters and those who invest in private companies know that the Inc. 5000 is the best place to find out about young companies that are achieving success through a wide variety of unprecedented business models, as well as older private companies that are still expanding at an impressive rate," said Inc. 5000 project manager Jim Melloan. "That's why our list is so eagerly anticipated every year."


"With over 6 million businesses in the United States, being recognized as one of the top 5000 is an honor. The ability to grow is due, in no small part, to the continued commitment of our employees and their dedication to providing our customers with the IT services and products that enable them to grow their businesses," said Corporate Technologies CEO Jim Griffith. "We are extremely pleased with our results in becoming one of the country's largest managed service providers. Technology Advantage which provides help desk, remote monitoring and on-site technical resources continues to be our fastest growing offering with 30-40 new companies signing up each month. This coupled with our outsourced IT services means that Corporate Technologies provides managed services to over 20,000 end-users in six states. In addition, we continue to be the IT partner of choice for companies that require IT solutions from HP, Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, and VMware."


The 2009 Inc. 5000, unveiled today on, serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding, making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy.
