Pragmatic Institute Makes Inc. 500|5000 List for Sixth Year

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., October 10, 2012– Pragmatic Institute has once again made Inc. magazine’s list of fastest-growing private companies.

The product management and marketing training firm joins Yelp, Avaya, ExactTarget, Kronos and other prominent companies featured on this year’s list. Pragmatic Institute also is featured on Inc.’s Honor Roll list of companies who have made the list five times or more.

Craig Stull, CEO of Pragmatic Institute, says, “Having made the list six times highlights the fact that our courses have become the industry standard for product management and marketing and shows our commitment to continued growth.”

"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward," adds Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg. "Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is."

Despite the recession, Pragmatic Institute grew its employee base and enjoyed a double-digit increase in revenue between 2008 and 2011, the three years Inc. used to determine this year’s fastest-growing companies.

Stull adds, “We’re proud and honored to have made the list again, and the fact that we’ve done so in a sluggish economy is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team.”
