Inc. Magazine’s Annual Inc. 5000 List Highlights America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
WOBURN, MA., November 3, 2021 – Access, the world’s largest privately-held integrated information management services provider, today announced that it is being recognized for the 12th year on the Inc. magazine annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing and most successful private companies. Access’ ranking was determined based on its three-year revenue growth of 43 percent.
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 the unprecedented challenges over the past 18 months. Among the list’s 5,000, those companies together 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.”
“It is an honor to once again be recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in America,” said Ken Davis, Access CEO. “As a leading information management services provider, we are grateful to have earned the business of over 33,000 companies; entrusted to protect and manage information for millions of people. We pride ourselves on empowering organizations to support and enable their full information management lifecycles, and we do this with innovation and our personalized, client-centric approach.” He adds that with the move towards remote and hybrid work environments, Access is utilizing leading-edge technologies to continually evolve its information management solutions.
