We did it again. In 2018, for the sixth year in a row, capSpire has been recognized among the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. As a result of 152% growth in revenue over the last three years, capSpire ranks #2,734 on the prestigious Inc. 5000 List, which is published annually by Inc. magazine.
This is an incredible achievement because most companies don’t earn a spot on the list more than once. Fewer than one-tenth of Inc. 5000 honorees attain the milestone of five consecutive years on the list, and only 6% have made the list six times.The Inc. 5000 List celebrates the 5,000 most inspiring companies from a wide range of industries, along with the overall value, jobs, and innovative products and services they create. Each summer, Inc. magazine announces rankings based on factors that include revenue and job growth.
“Out of nearly 7 million private companies moving the U.S. economy forward each day and under consideration of this honor, capSpire is delighted to once again be included in the elite group known as the ‘Inc. 5000 honor roll.’ We thank Inc. magazine for shining a light on the incredibly hard work and significant accomplishments of our team, and the resulting success that we’ve experienced,” says Lance Laubach, capSpire CEO.
capSpire has come a long way since our inception as a start-up in Fayetteville, Arkansas, in 2009. Today, capSpire is a world-class technology consulting and solutions company with an established presence throughout the U.S. and Europe. In 2017, that presence expanded with the opening of a new office in Houston, Texas. This is capSpire’s sixth office globally and second office in Texas. capSpire’s European reach is growing, too. Recently, capSpire announced the expansion of our analytics practice in Europe, which will be spearheaded from the Cork, Ireland, office.
An important factor in capSpire’s growth is our ability to hire and retain the brightest minds and problem solvers in the industry. In addition to offering exciting job opportunities around the world, we pride ourselves on encouraging a collaborative, team-based atmosphere and fostering a unique culture that gives our people a high degree of autonomy and flexibility, as well as abundant opportunities for training and advancement. We’ve created a sought-after workplace in which our people are excited about coming to work each day and reaching beyond the status quo to find a better way for clients.
As a result, capSpire consistently wins the When Work Works Award from the Families and Work Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management. And, for the first time, capSpire recently won the “Arkansas Business of the Year” Award from Arkansas Business among companies with 56 to 100 employees.From our brilliant team members come inventive technical solutions that simplify clients’ business operations. In 2017, capSpire’s consulting practice continued to grow tremendously and we further cemented our status as a go-to expert for implementing and enhancing trading and risk systems. Key areas of growth in our consulting practice include analytics and advisory offerings, such as reviewing business processes and assisting in the selection of commodity trading and risk management (CTRM) systems. capSpire’s managed services offering, in which our consultants offer ongoing, immediate functional and technical support for CTRM systems on an on-site or remote basis, also experienced robust growth.
Last year, capSpire provided consulting services to 60 companies in 13 countries throughout North America, Europe, and Australia.
Additionally, in 2017 capSpire’s Gravitate solution introduced a critical new feature: our online trade-execution platform. This platform has fundamentally transformed how energy wholesalers and marketers present prices and execute trades with customers. Now, customers can purchase products online 24/7 using web or mobile apps, which makes the process more convenient, efficient, and flexible.
Our growth and subsequent recognition on the Inc. 5000 List is entirely due to our talented, energetic, and creative team as well as our dedicated roster of clients. Regarding our people, they are the reason capSpire exists and enjoys a stellar reputation for innovation in the industry. As for our loyal customers, we are grateful for their continued partnership and for entrusting their significant investments to us,” says Jeff Hardcastle, capSpire Co-Founder.
