NEW YORK, NY– Inc. magazine today revealed that Karsun Solutions, an IT modernization firm serving the United States government, is No. 2523 on its annual Inc. 5000 list. This is the firm’s fifth appearance on the list. As a five-time honoree Karsun Solutions joins an elite club. Just four percent of Inc. 5000 companies make the list five times.
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. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We are honored by our membership among these performance-focused companies,” said Karsun Solutions CEO Sundar Vaidyanathan. “Our teams have long dedicated themselves to our customers, delivering quality solutions in each engagement.”
As a result of continuous year-over-year growth Karsun Solutions will move into a new headquarters in Herndon, Virginia this year. The office is slated to open in September 2019. The new 75,000+ square foot space will house corporate and customer teams in addition to the Karsun Innovation Center and training facilities. As part of the firm’s expansion, the organization plans to hire more than a hundred people in 2019. Candidates may apply at karsun-llc.com/careers.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 20) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
