Protingent Becomes Seven-Time Inc. 500|5000 Honoree

The Inc. 500|5000 Is a List of the Nation's Fastest Growing Private Companies

REDMOND, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 29, 2013) -  Protingent® (, a top provider of highly-skilled engineering and IT talent, today announced that the company has earned a spot on the Inc. 500|5000 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies for the seventh year. In addition to making it on the list, Protingent was the only human resources firm in Washington State to make the list and ranked well in several other Inc. 500|5000 segments:

  • 93 in the Top 100 Human Resources Companies
  • 65 in the Top 100 Washington Companies
  • 60 in the Seattle Metro

"Our continued success is attributed to customer confidence in our ability to recruit and maintain a high quality pool of engineering and IT talent," said Donn Harvey. "More important, none of this would have been possible without our own highly capable staff who are very focused on our customers' staffing needs and providing the highest level of customer service."

"Not all the companies in the Inc. 500|5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy," says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.

The Inc. 500|5000 ranking follows on the heels of several other distinctions earned in the past year:

  • Staffing Industry Analysts' annual list of fastest-growing staffing firms (July 2013)
  • Washington's 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies List (Puget Sound Business Journal, October 2012)
  • American Staffing Association VOICE Communications Crystal Award (September 2012)

Over the past 10 years, more than 300 companies have engaged Protingent in order to quickly and cost effectively staff technology projects. Protingent continues to expand its services throughout the United States with offices serving Washington, California, Oregon, and Texas.

The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent -- not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies -- as of December 31, 2012. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2009 is $100,000; the minimum for 2012 is $2 million.
