Aug. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Kilgannon today announced it has been recognized for the second year in a row by Inc. 5000 as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the United States. The Inc. 5000, an extension of the longstanding Inc. 500 list, identifies and profiles the elite of the growing entrepreneurial economy in the United States.
"It is truly an honor to be named to the Inc. 5000 list for the second consecutive year," said Rena Kilgannon, founder and principal of Kilgannon. "The fact that we were again recognized as one of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S. can be attributed to our employees, whose strategic thinking, creativity and on-target execution continue to help our clients build their brands despite the tough market conditions."
The 2009 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2005 through 2008. To qualify, companies must be U.S.-based and privately held, independent - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies - as of December 31, 2008, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2005, and $2 million in 2008.
"The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth," said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan.
