Inc. Magazine Unveils 35th Annual List of
America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 500
NEW YORK, August 17, 2016 – Inc. magazine today ranked San Diego-based JCS Consulting Group, Inc. NO. 457 on its 35th annual Inc. 500, 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.
“JCS has always concentrated on helping our customers move expensive data center applications to more cost-effective SAAS and cloud-based solutions. We focus on solving the business problem for the customer and allow them to provide better service at a lower cost to their customer base. This focus on increasing our customers’ value-proposition to their customers has resulted in our rapid growth and strong customer loyalty,” said John Cloyd, CEO and co-founder of JCS Consulting Group, Inc.
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies 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%. JCS’s growth was nearly double this at 838%.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. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, 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 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.”
“JCS focuses on the mission-critical systems that are better done in the cloud,” said Carlo Saggese, CTO and co-founder of JCS Consulting Group. “We closely partner with our customers to successfully implement enterprise solutions that allow our customers’ employees, their customers, and their partners to work collaboratively and connected on devices of their choice by implementing strategic and technical best practices learned from tens of thousands of hours and hundreds of successful implementations.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, 2016, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.
