2012 Companies Honored and Rankings Announced

SEATTLE, WA – Oct. 12, 2012 – Puget Sound Business Journal announced that AIM Consulting ranked number 24 on the 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies list at an awards event at the Bellevue Meydenbauer Center on Oct. 11. The event, which drew nearly 500 people, announced and honored all 100 companies on the list and revealed each company’s ranking. The 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies are listed, with select companies profiled, in a special publication of the Business Journal on Oct. 12.

The Fastest-Growing Private Companies program was launched 17 years ago by the Puget Sound Business Journal to identify and recognize companies speeding to the top of their industries. To be eligible, companies must: be privately held and headquartered in Washington; have at least $500,000 in net revenue in 2009; show an overall growth from 2009 to 2011 calendar years; and agree to submit their net operating revenues with Puget Sound Business Journal.

“The companies that make this list are, by definition, among the most dynamic in our region,” said Business Journal Publisher Gordon Prouty. “Especially this year, making membership on this elite list is all the more impressive, and these companies are showing all of us what qualities it takes to grow in challenging times.”
