Altum Appears on Inc. Magazine’s List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies — the Inc. 5000 — for the 5th Time

WASHINGTON, DC, August 17, 2016Inc. magazine today ranked Altum NO. 4951 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

This is the fifth time Altum has appeared on the Inc. 5000 list.  Altum’s first appearance was in 2008.

“Altum is proud to have made the Inc. 5000 list for the fifth time,” said Altum’s CEO, Steve Pinchotti. “This is a great way to kick off our 20th anniversary celebration next year.  Our continued growth and success can be directly attributed to the commitment of our team and the loyalty of our customers.  We provide innovative solutions to the philanthropic and government industries and help our customers do much more with their data – from making better decisions to working smarter and not harder.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com, featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
