Recognized as a Top 100 company in the Business Products and Services Industry


Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Customer Value Partners (CVP), an award-winning business and IT consultancy, today announced that it has been named to the 2009 Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. CVP ranks No. 1,090 with three-year sales growth of 286 percent and also earned distinction as a Top 100 company in the Business Products and Services Industry category nationwide.


"We are pleased to be recognized for the third consecutive year for CVP's impressive growth, especially in this challenging economic environment," said Anirudh Kulkarni, Managing Principal, CVP. "This honor demonstrates our success collaborating with clients to achieve their strategic goals through operational efficiencies and growth opportunities."


The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2005, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they have to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- as of December 31, 2008. Revenue in 2005 must have been at least $200,000 and revenue in 2008 must have been at least $2 million.


"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."
