For the 4th Consecutive Year, ACS Named to Inc. 5000; Ranked No. 716 with Three-Year Revenue Growth of 686%

August 19, 2021 GMT

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 19, 2021--

For the fourth consecutive year, Assured Consulting Solutions (ACS) appears on the Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. With three-year revenue growth of 686%, ACS ranks no. 716 on this year’s list, in the top 15% of all 2021 Inc. 5000 honorees.

The Inc. 5000 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, Under Armour, Facebook, Patagonia, Intuit, Zappos, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.


Founded in 2011 by Managing Partners Erin Willett and Mandy Parmer, ACS exemplifies the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit that defines the Inc. 5000. Since its establishment, ACS has delivered progressively innovative and advanced technology solutions and services in support of critical national security missions.

Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years, only a fraction has made the list more than once. Making the list four consecutive years is a feat only 1 in 13 companies achieve. ACS debuted on the Inc. 5000 list first in 2018, ranking in the top third at no. 1642. ACS followed that up in 2019 in the no. 436 spot, recognized as one of the top 500 (top 10%) of all 2019 honorees, and again in 2020 at no. 746 (top 15%).


We are both honored and humbled to be recognized and ranked on the Inc. 5000 list for the fourth year running. Each year we point to our world-class team, mission-first service delivery philosophy, and strong employee-focused culture as the fuel to our continued and sustained growth and success, and this year is no different. We have worked hard to execute our vision for strategic growth while focusing on the support of our people and culture.”

-- Mandy Parmer, ACS Managing Partner

Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5000 honorees, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 54%, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
