RTM Engineering Consultants Makes Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for 2nd Straight Year
Multidisciplinary Engineering Firm Ranks No.1899 on the 2014 Inc. 5000
CHICAGO, November 13, 2014 — Inc. magazine ranked RTM Engineering Consulants (RTM) NO. 1899 on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. RTM has made the list two years in a row and has grown nearly 220% over that time period. The engineering firm joins a prestigious list of American independent entrepreneurs such as Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many more who gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
“Throughout history, advances in engineering have transformed the way we live and work, and now it is time to transform the industry itself,” says Tony Mirchandani, CEO of RTM. “We are building a multidisciplinary engineering firm that can deliver the resources and project efficiencies of a large national firm, while continuing to provide our high quality, boutique service delivery. Being on the Inc. 5000 list for a second year in a row signifies our entrepreneurial vision of redefining how firms in our industry operate.”
The 2014 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years.
“What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”
