York Enterprise Solutions, a national information technology staffing firm based in Westchester, Illinois, announced today that it has placed No. 1373 on the 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy America’s independent entrepreneurs.
“We are so grateful to not only make this list, but to rank as high as we did,” said Bill Carr, CEO of York Enterprise Solutions. “The economic downturn in 2009 was difficult for everyone, but our team rose to the occasion. We realized that our success is not based solely on the IT consulting services we provide, but rather on the manner in which we do business. We’ve gone from being a transactional company to one that focuses on building relationships and being a trusted advisor to our clients and consultants. As a result we’ve grown in our existing markets and expanded into others.”
During this period, York also launched a peer-to-peer professional development company for IT professionals called Think IT. The independent association offers meetings, mentorship, and leadership training at no cost.
“Think IT is an opportunity to give back to the individuals and organizations that have made us successful,” added Carr. “It is really the growth and success of our clients that have placed us on this list.”
York falls within the top 100 Chicagoland area companies that made the list. This is the company’s fourth time making the list in the last 15 years.
The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. 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 on Inc. 5000 website.
