Corner Alliance was recently selected to be included in Inc. Magazine’s 500|5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. This marks the third-straight year that Corner Alliance has made the list since the company’s inception in 2007; the company climbed over 800 spots to be ranked 3432 in 2014.
Corner Alliance co-founder Ron Prater reflects: “We set a goal in 2011 to be on the Inc 5000 list three years in a row. While it’s great to have achieved that goal, I’m more proud of the completely brilliant and energetic team we’ve built at Corner Alliance over that timeframe. In attending the Inc 5000 conference this week and talking to a bunch of the awardees and speakers, it really struck me that we have the puzzle pieces to continue to grow a thriving company. We love our people, we’ve accepted the fact that we need to make some changes, and we’re adjusting — these were common themes of the successful companies that spoke to this week.”
The Inc. 500|5000 is a list of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation. Started in 1982, this prestigious list of the nation’s most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success. The Inc. 5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony is an annual event that celebrates their remarkable achievements. The event also offers informative workshops, celebrated keynote speakers, and evening functions. For more information on Inc. and the Inc. 5000 Conference, visit http://www.inc.com/.
“Being among so many innovative and interesting leaders is really invigorating. Fast growth can be exhilarating and scary and the conference confirmed for me that our values-driven model and culture will carry us into the future.” says Corner Alliance’s Director of Consulting Ami Retamoza.
Corner Alliance COO Brandi Greygor was impressed with the level of insight the Conference’s speakers brought to the table: “The Inc. 5000 conference provides a huge opportunity to not only network with other growing firms from a diverse set of industries, but to also learn from incredible speakers and entrepreneurs such as Brene’ Brown (TedTalk speaker, Author, researcher), Michael Dell (founder of Dell), and Bob Parsons (founder of GoDaddy).”
Eric Shurenberg, the President and Editor In Chief of Inc. magazine stated in a congratulatory letter to each recipient, “The average company on the list grew a mind-boggling 516 percent. Those are results most businesses could only dream of. Your success is testimony to your team’s creativity, resilience, and tenacity.”
Corner Alliance credits the company’s unyielding commitment to their corporate values and their impressive team of talented consultants for their continued growth and success in an extremely competitive market facing tight budgets.
Prater looks to the future and states, “We’re launching phase two of Corner Alliance and I think it’s going to be an amazing ride.”
