DALLAS, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Beryl Companies, a healthcare-exclusive call center based in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex, was included in the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country for the second straight year.

The Inc. 5000 list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.
"Our second annual Inc. 5000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism," said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. "The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth."
Beryl provides comprehensive call center services to 450 hospitals and healthcare organizations across the nation.

Paul Spiegelman, Beryl's founder and CEO, attributes much of their success to the company's exceptional corporate culture and unfaltering commitment to outstanding customer service.
