Columbia, MD


August 23, 2017

Inc. Magazine has recognized IMPAQ International on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, a list of the fastest-growing, privately-held companies in the US. This is the second year in a row that Inc. included IMPAQ on the list, which ranks companies based on three-year revenue growth.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized by Inc. Magazine again,” IMPAQ CEO Avi Benus said. “Our continued growth allows us to have a positive effect on our local communities and on policies and programs affecting millions of people around the world.”

This year, Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $206 billion and the companies on the list collectively generated 619,500 jobs over the past three years. In the greater Baltimore area, IMPAQ is one of 61 companies that made the list because of continuous job and revenue growth. 

"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” said Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”
