Inc. Magazine Unveils 33rd Annual List of
America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000
Houston, TX – September 5, 2014 – Walker Elliott has once again been named to the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing, privately held companies, placing number 3847 in 2014, reflecting a three-year growth of 80%. Walker Elliott previously appeared on the Inc. 5000 in 2013 and the Houston Business Journal Fast 100 in 2012, ranked number 55, and 2013, moving up 11 places to number 44.
Walker Elliott is a technical search firm based in Houston, recruiting upstream oil and gas technical professionals nationwide and IT professionals across Texas. Their focus on building relationships within these disciplines has allowed them to find exceptional active and passive candidates for even the most challenging-to-fill positions.
“Our success comes from our experienced team, long-term relationships in the marketplace and our ability to deliver top professionals for difficult-to-fill searches,” said Betsy Elliott, Managing Partner. “Our recruiting professionals average 14 years in tenure and bring extensive expertise and relationships within their specialized niches. This allows us to consult and advise our clients through the entire recruitment process – building strategies that allow us to do more than provide talent that meets their immediate technical needs – but is also the right long-term strategic match.”
The 2014 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2013. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2010 is $100,000; the minimum for 2013 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.
