Climbs 379 spots over 2018 Ranking

RESTON, Va., Sept. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced that Inc. magazine has ranked the company #3847 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment — its independent small businesses.

The 2019 Inc. 5000 rankings are based on percentage of revenue growth from 2015 to 2018. During this period, Carahsoft achieved a three-year growth rate of 87 percent and posted over $5 billion in revenue in 2018, earning Carahsoft additional distinctions as a top revenue producer:

  • The #1 revenue producer in Government Services
  • The #1 revenue producer in Virginia and the D.C. Metro Area
  • The #1 revenue producer among the 12-Time Honorees
  • The #4 revenue producer among all 5000 companies

“We are proud to be named once again on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing companies in the nation,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft President. “Our growth would not be possible without our commitment to supporting our partners throughout the public sector channel, including our government customers, IT solutions vendors and reseller ecosystem.”

The companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 produced an aggregate revenue of $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.

“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.”

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

Since its founding in 2004, Carahsoft has provided the public sector market with IT solutions from hundreds of technology vendors, prime contractors, system integrators, value-added resellers and additional channel partners. In 2018, the company booked more than $5 billion in sales and expanded its team to include more than 1,000 sales, marketing, customer service and contracting professionals.

Methodology
The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2018. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
