CHARLOTTE-BASED STAFFING AND RECRUITMENT FIRM CEO INC. RANKS NO. 3306 ON THE 2016 INC. 5000 LIST OF FASTEST-GROWING COMPANIES WITH THREE-YEAR SALES GROWTH OF 100%

NEW YORK, August 22, 2016 – Inc. magazine has ranked the staffing and recruitment firm CEO Inc. #3306 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, 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.

“We’re very thankful to have received this honor.” Said Debby Millhouse, owner and CEO of CEO Inc. “Having been in the recruitment and staffing business for over 20 years now, this is certainly one of the highlights in company history. Making the Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies is a very significant achievement for us and speaks to the hard work of our team, as well as the continued loyalty of our clients that we deeply appreciate.”

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%. 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.”
