NEW YORK, Sept. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the fifth consecutive year, Quest CE, premier provider of insurance continuing education and FINRA firm element training, has been named to the Inc. 500|5000 list of the nation's fastest growing privately-held companies. This year, Quest CE ranked No. 60 among Wisconsin companies and 4,433 overall, with a 3-year revenue growth of 60 percent.
The Inc. 5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Yelp, Pandora, Dell, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
"To be recognized as an Inc. 5000 company for a fifth consecutive year is a testament to Quest CE's ability to push past the boundaries of technology to create industry-leading compliance training and tracking solutions," said Quest CE President and CEO Linda Krenke. "We're thrilled to be featured on this year's exclusive list and are grateful to our clients and partners for their continued support over the years."
The 2014 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a monumental three-year growth of 516%. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 5000 list can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
"What surprises me, even though I know it's coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn't change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship."
This highly coveted award comes in the wake of Quest CE's recently debuted Licensing and Registration system, Bridge. Quest CE's Bridge is a web-based, multifaceted application that was built to automate, centralize and simplify the task of organizing and maintaining FINRA Web CRD and NIPR integrated data. It's because of this unwavering commitment to innovation that Quest CE is anticipated to continue on its path of success in the future.
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 15 through 17, 2014 in Phoenix. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as Michael Dell, Martha Stewart, host of the CNBC show "The Profit" Marcus Lemonis, Container Store Founder and CEO Kip Tindell, and Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya.
