Inc. Magazine Unveils 35th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

By | Press Releases | No Comments

Controle Ranks No. 994 on the 2016 Inc. 5000
with Three-Year Sales Growth of 402%

 

NEW YORK, August 17, 2016Inc. magazine today ranked Controle No. 994 on its 35th 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. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“Considering that there are over 18 million private companies in the US, being in the top 1000 fastest growing of them all over the past 4 years is an outstanding achievement by our team at Controle and a real honor,” stated Kevin Barnicle, Founder and CEO of Controle. “Our growth is a testament to the value we have brought our customers and partners.  Every day we continue to bring more solutions to the eDiscovery and Information Governance markets, and we do not see our growth slowing down anytime soon.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000 list has been unveiled online at Inc.com, and the top 500 companies will be featured in the September issue of Inc. (available in newsstands August 23). The companies featured are the most competitive crop in the list’s history. 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. 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.

“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.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins; SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice; Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller; Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai; and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.

Work-from-home Website Interviews Controle CEO Kevin Barnicle About Telecommuting

By | Notes | No Comments

Skipthedrive.com recently interviewed Controle CEO Kevin Barnicle as part of an article “How Do Employers Feel About Telecommuting?”

kevin barnicle portrait website - 600Here’s what Kevin shared in response to the question, Do you plan on continuing to allow employees to telecommute?

Absolutely. In business, what everyone should be focused on is results. And if someone will achieve better results from working from home, why wouldn’t you let them do that? Plus, from a merely operational perspective, there are many financial benefits for the business on not having to provide additional office space, etc. to accommodate employees. Finally, we have found that us trusting our employees to work from home instills a lot of loyalty in them to our company. We wouldn’t change that for anything.

“If someone will achieve better results from working from home, why wouldn’t you let them do that?”

Controle COO Stephen O'Leary Interviewed For Tech Page One Article

Here are Stephen’s highlighted contributions to the article.

In regard to data deluge creating problems for backup:

“Although disk space is cheap, many IT professionals are challenged by an inability to back up everything overnight,” O’Leary said. Therefore, they may back up mission-critical data nightly, but rotate backup for unstructured content such as proposals and correspondence. Read More
