"It is our second time on the Inc. 500|5000 list, and it is quite an achievement to be a part of such an elite group of companies, particularly in these difficult economic times," said Sandi Webster, one of the Principals of Consultants 2 Go. Peggy McHale, also a Principal, said, "To be recognized by Inc. magazine as one small business out of 5,000 that is helping to fuel the economy with job growth, is an amazing honor."
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 500|5000 companies remains an impressive 97 percent. The companies on this year's list report having created over 400,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $299 billion.
