Inc. Magazine Recognizes Marathon Consulting as One of the Nation’s Fastest Growing Companies for the Second Year in a Row
Marathon Consulting, LLC, a Virginia Beach-based provider of Information Technology solutions, announced today that the company was named to the Inc. 500/5000 list for the 2nd consecutive year. Inc. Magazine's list is an annual compilation of the most entrepreneurial and fastest growing, privately held U.S. companies. Marathon Consulting achieved a growth rate of 94% since 2007. This growth placed Marathon in the 2,493rd position on the list. The 2010 list ranked Marathon at number 466.
"During a period of such economic stagnation, we're extremely happy to win this recognition for the 2nd year in a row," said Al Moore, Marathon's President. "Our continuing growth comes from the high quality work our consultants deliver to our clients on an everyday basis. Most of our growth is repeat business, which says quite a lot. That's why we made the list again this year," he continued.
"Marathon focuses on the delivery of measurable business value. Regardless of the project, we always want the client to look back on our work and be able to identify and, in most cases, measure Marathon's positive impact. When that happens, we've lived up to our promise," Moore stated.
