For the 2nd Time, Blue Signal Appears on the Inc 5000 List, Ranking No. 1751 With a Three-Year Revenue Growth of 351 Percent
Today, Inc. revealed that Blue Signal is No. 1751 on its annual Inc 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The list represents a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc 5000 list.
This is the second consecutive year Blue Signal has been ranked on Inc 5000 list and in addition to being recognized as #1751 overall, we were also ranked #57 in Arizona, #54 in Phoenix, and #74 in Human Resources! "We are proud and humbled to be on the Inc 5000 list alongside many of our partners and clients," says Blue Signal CEO, Matt Walsh. "This recognition is a testament to our clients, candidates, and team. We are thankful for the opportunities to help build and grow many Inc. 5000 clients and appreciate the opportunity to be among them."
The companies on the 2022 Inc 5000 list have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc 5000 list, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23rd.
“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, Editor-In-Chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”
