Four Years in a row
OAK BROOK, IL, September 27, 2012 – BridgePoint Technologies, a full service information Technology Consulting Firm announces it has been recognized, for the fourth year in a row, on Inc. magazine’s 2012 “5000 Fastest Growing Companies” list. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“We are honored to be among this prestigious group of businesses for the fourth consecutive year,” said Michael Millhouse, President and CEO. “We recognize that it is our staff who with their commitment and dedication to service, technology and delivery, provide our customers with the right technology solutions that drive results and provide return on investment.”
“Founded only eight years ago, we’re exceptionally proud to have made the list four years in a row and to be recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in North America,” said Laura Barker, Vice President and COO of BridgePoint Technologies.
When BridgePoint started eight years ago, the company’s business strategy was founded on commitment and dedication to service, applying the right technology to fit client’s unique requirements and finding great people to implement it all. Eight years later and four years on the list, BridgePoint remains true to its founding principals and believes it has attributed to its ability to remain on the INC 5000 for the past four years.
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2012 Inc. 500|5000 companies remains an impressive 97 percent. The companies on this year’s list report having created over 400,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $299 billion.

“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
