For the 7th time, Lightwell appears on the Inc. 5000 list and is ranked as one of the top IT Services firms nationwide
Dublin, Ohio, August 23, 2016—Inc. magazine has once again included Lightwell on its 35th annual Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies. The Inc. 5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. Businesses such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names have been members of the Inc. 5000. This is the 7th time the Central Ohio based IT services and solutions provider has been recognized on the list.
Since 1998, Lightwell has assisted many organizations across North America and Western Europe in planning, implementing, managing, and optimizing their technologies. The company’s core focus areas include eCommerce, Order Management, B2B Integration, Managed File Transfer, and IT staffing. By combining extensive technology and business knowledge with an in-depth understanding of its clients’ challenges and goals, Lightwell helps organizations accelerate growth, reduce cost and complexity, increase profitability, and improve customer satisfaction.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by Inc. magazine again this year, and are so proud of our team for the hard work, commitment, and ingenuity that has led to this recognition,” said Michelle Kerr, president of Lightwell. “We’re also tremendously grateful for the support of our customers and partners, as we could not have achieved and sustained this level of growth without them.”
Since its early days as Oxford Consulting Group, Lightwell has differentiated itself through its highly experienced team, a flexible and honest approach to client relationships, and commitment to delivering exceptional value. This approach has worked well, as evidenced by Lightwell’s exceptional year-over-year growth.
The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
