70% of Consultants News' 75 Top Ranked Consulting Firms Grew Revenue in 2004

Revenue-per-Professional Is Highest Ever for CN75

PETERBOROUGH, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 22, 2005 -- Consultants News, published by industry watchdog Kennedy Information, has released its annual CN75 ranking of the world's largest consulting practices. Documenting significant operating improvements, Consultants News reports that almost 70 percent of the profession's top firms grew revenue in 2004. An improved economic landscape, in addition to firms' cost-cutting measures, resulted in the CN75's highest ever revenue-per-professional, a key profitability metric.

"These are the first indicators of growth we've seen since 2001," said Jess Scheer, Executive Editor of Consultants News. "And while the economic recovery may have helped, our research shows that growth has less to do with the economy than it does with smart firms, well-positioned to take advantage of market opportunities, especially in specialized sectors. Government, human resources and healthcare are three examples," Scheer said.

In addition to consulting firm revenue rankings, the CN75 includes data segmented by firm size, sector and ownership model, lists best and worst performers, and provides revenue-per-professional benchmarks. Kennedy Information has published Consultants News and a database of proprietary consulting firm rankings for over 30 years.
