CHARLOTTE, NC, August 20, 2014 – Today Inc. magazine ranked C5 Insight on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000. 


“The achievements that C5 Insight has realized are largely due to our dynamic team, who has invested so much into the company and into each other.  We are also grateful to our amazing clients who have trusted us with their vision for relationships and collaboration and asked for our help in making this vision a reality.  It is an honor to be selected by both employees and clients to be a part of their continued success.  Last year’s event played a pivotal role in shaping our strategy for 2014 – we look forward to October’s conference with very high expectations.” said Managing Partner, Geoff Ables, upon learning of C5 Insight’s inclusion on the list. 


Fellow Managing Partner, Curtis Hughes, remarked “The level of growth attained in recent years has never been the driver for what we do, but rather the benefit of a group that is passionate about forever changing the way people and organizations work together.  To be included on this esteemed list for a second year is both extremely rewarding and humbling.  I can't tell you how blessed I feel, having the opportunity to lead a team of employees that starts each day with the goal of serving each other and our clients.  We are eager to attend the Inc. 5000 Conference this Fall, meet the other successful companies on the list, and hear from some of the greatest minds in business.”


The 2014 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years.


"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
