Three Proforma Owners Debut on Inc’s 5000 List
Cleveland-based Proforma announced three Proforma owners were ranked on Inc. magazine’s top 5,000 fastest growing private businesses. With a combined growth of nearly 250 percent, Proforma Solutions, Proforma Sunshine State and Proforma Albrecht & Co. all made debuts on the list.
“The Proforma family is extremely proud to have not one, not two, but three Proforma owners receive this high honor,” say Greg Muzzillo, co-CEO and founder of Proforma. “The impressive growth and success of our members is a testament to Proforma’s innovative business model, which allows each Proforma owner to provide their clients with responsive local service while connecting them with a network of infinite resources to help them grow their business.”
The Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2004 through 2007. To qualify, companies must have been founded and shown to generate revenue by the first week of 2004, present four full calendar years of sales and U.S.-based, privately held, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2007. The minimum revenue required for 2004 is $200,000; the minimum for 2007 is $2 million. Revenue figures given in the company profiles correspond to calendar year 2007.
