Avalution Consulting Named to the 2016 Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America

Cleveland, OH – September 14, 2016

Avalution Consulting – the leading provider of business continuity and IT disaster recovery consulting and software solutions – announced today that Inc. magazine has positioned Avalution on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses.

Avalution Consulting was ranked No. 2951 on the 2016 Inc. 5000 and No. 25 in the Cleveland, OH Metro Area with a three-year sales growth of 116%.

“We are honored to be named to the Inc. 5000,” stated Brian Zawada, Co-Founder and Director of Consulting at Avalution. “Our growth is a result of the trust our clients place in us, as well as our amazing team of professionals that delivers world-class consulting services and software solutions to leading businesses in the United States and internationally.”

This is the first year Avalution has applied for this honor. 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 inc.com/inc5000.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held October 18-20, 2016 in San Antonio, TX.
