FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CASTRO VALLEY, CA, August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Blue Beyond Consulting has been named to its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This is the second year in a row that Blue Beyond has been recognized. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Headquartered in the San Francisco Bay area, with additional team members across the United States and abroad, Blue Beyond is an industry leader in helping organizations build people-focused, thriving cultures. The organization has experienced tremendous success, with three-year revenue growth of 113% between 2017 and 2020 and talent growth of 100%.
“We’re honored and grateful to be named as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America,” said Cheryl Fields Tyler, Blue Beyond CEO and founder. “Our mission is to help organizations build cultures and high-performing teams rooted in Deep Trust and High Expectations™. Our team’s unwavering commitment to our clients, our craft, and each other has been the key to our success. 2020 was a challenging year, but I am so proud of everyone at Blue Beyond who rose to the challenge and continued to provide extraordinary service to our clients.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
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 at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20, 2021.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
