Simplicity Consulting Named to Inc. 5000 for Fifth Year in a Row
Company Ranks No. 1930 on the 2015 List with Three-Year Sales Growth of 205%
Friday, August 14, 2015 —
KIRKLAND, WA — For the fifth year in a row, Simplicity Consulting has been named to Inc. magazine’s Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at a key segment of the American economy—independent entrepreneurs. Companies like Yelp, Pandora, LinkedIn, Zillow and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 5000.
For the 34th annual list, Simplicity Consulting was ranked no. 1930 — no small feat given the 2015 list is considered the most competitive to date. Simplicity is also one of only 935 companies that have made the list five or more times. Simplicity was recognized for its 205% three-year growth and creation of 202 jobs since 2011.
“Simplicity being named to the Inc. 5000 for 5 years running is a result of our being on the forefront of the talent shift that’s currently underway,” says founder Lisa Hufford. “In today’s rapidly changing business landscape, companies need on-demand talent that’s highly specialized, experienced and agile — and more and more experts want flexibility in how they work. I recognized this emerging trend in 2006 when I founded Simplicity and it’s been gratifying to see Inc. continue to recognize us.”
Hufford is currently authoring a book that delves further into this trend, Navigating the Talent Shift, that will be published in Spring 2016 by Palgrave MacMillan.
