Falls Church, Virginia – September 1, 2012
For the second straight year, Evans Incorporated has been named to the Inc. 500|5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Inc. magazine ranked Evans Incorporated as No. 1311 on the sixth annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking that represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Evans, a management consulting firm that helps clients reach maximum effectiveness through managed change involving processes, systems and people, joins the rarified company of enterprises that have appeared on the list multiple times, many of which have grown to become national icons.
“Evans Incorporated is proud to be named to the prestigious Inc. 500|5000 list for the second consecutive year, and we are honored to be ranked in the same company as some of the country’s most successful and innovative businesses,” said Susan Evans, President and CEO of Evans Incorporated. “Staying true to our pillars of client service has enabled us to grow while helping clients manage change. Evans believes it’s people, not systems, that will ultimately achieve great outcomes – and that’s why we are passionate about building environments where people are excited about collaborating, innovating, and having an impact.”
The 2012 Inc. 500|5000 was ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. Evans experienced significant revenue growth of more than 236 percent between 2008 and 2011, and saw its number of employees grow nearly 129 percent. The company is headquartered in Falls Church, Va., and previously made the list in 2011.
The achievement places Evans among an elite group of companies including Unified Payments, which topped this year’s Inc. 500|5000 list, as well as Yelp, yogurt maker Chobani, GiftCards.com, KIND, and famed hatmaker Tilly’s, among other prominent brands.
The median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 500|5000 companies remained at an impressive 97 percent. The companies featured on this year’s list reported having created more than 400,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $299 billion.
“Now more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” said Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
