IPexpert Ranks #1137 Among America’s 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies
CHINA, Mich., Aug. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second consecutive year, Inc. Magazine has ranked IPexpert on its list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy -- America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.
"Our second annual Inc. 5000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism," said Inc. 5000 Project Manager, Jim Melloan. "The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth."
IPexpert is a global leader in providing self-study multimedia learning tools and classroom training preparing computer networking engineers for the highest-level career certification offered by Cisco Systems: the CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert). Although Cisco is the leading provider of computer networking solutions worldwide, less than 20,000 engineers have been able to attain this prestigious certification. Those that have joined this elite group are highly sought after by the world's top companies and government agencies, commanding six-figure salaries, job security and respected status among peers.
Wayne Lawson, IPexpert President, founded the company in 2001 after becoming a CCIE himself. "Growing from a part-time hobby to a multimillion dollar business has been an incredible journey," he said. Vice President Matt Brooks credits the success of IPexpert to "making the right investments, building a great team and staying focused on the customer."
The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to each company's percentage of revenue growth from 2004 through 2007. To qualify, companies must be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
