Marathon Consulting, LLC, a Hampton Roads-based provider of Information Technology and Internet Marketing solutions, announced today that the company was named to the 33rd annual Inc. 500/5000 list. Inc. Magazine's list is an annual compilation of the most entrepreneurial and fastest growing, privately held U.S. companies. A growth rate of 86% placed Marathon in the 3,698th position on the list. This is the 5th consecutive year Marathon has been named to the list, ranking 2,686th on the 2013 list, 2,558th on the 2012 list, 2,493rd on the 2011 list, and 466th on the 2010 Inc. 500 list.
Harris Pezzella, President of Marathon Consulting, said, "To be recognized for 5 years running by Inc. Magazine is extremely gratifying, particularly given Marathon's approach to growth and our commitment to quality. From day one, our vision has been based on building a company which strives to be the best provider of Information Technology services in Hampton Roads first and foremost, not the biggest. This, we believe, manifests itself through the customer service we provide our clients and is executed by our first-class consulting team. As Marathon finds new clients that we are able to serve, we take pride in the satisfaction of those clients who continue to call on us."
