Academic Network, LLC Ranks No. 3,216 on the 2007 Inc. 5,000, No. 58 in the
Portland Metro Region with Three-Year Sales Growth of 97.2%
PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine has ranked Academic Network, a medical and health communications firm, No. 3,216 on its first-ever Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine's annual Inc. 500 list, catches many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy. Academic Network placed No. 58 in growth for the Portland Metro Region.
"The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy -- the entrepreneurial part," said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. "The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries like Manufacturing and Construction that are underreported in the business media.
"Academic Network is pleased with this national recognition. Now more than ever, consumer information on healthcare issues and products is vital," says the company's co-founder and chief executive officer, Kathleen A. McCarron, a 22 year veteran of healthcare management and telecommunications.
Expanding partnerships with GlaxoSmithKline, Flieshman Hillard, Boston Scientific, Campbell Soup Company, and Shaping America's Youth have accelerated the growth of Academic Network. Inc. magazine editors specifically noted the recent recognition of Academic Network as one of the top 50 diversity-owned businesses in Oregon. Business growth recently prompted a 300% increase in call center capacity. "Portland's diverse healthcare workforce has made our accelerated growth possible, "CEO McCarron stated.
