Pragmatic Institute Makes Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Companies for Seventh Time

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 28, 2013 – Pragmatic Institute's focus on helping other organizations grow has led to its own continued high rate of growth. The company has achieved a place in the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in America for the seventh time.

The product management and marketing training firm joins, Nexus, LivingSocial and other prominent companies featured on this year's list. Despite a stagnant economy, Pragmatic Institute grew its employee base and enjoyed a 67% increase in revenue between 2009 and 2012, the three years Inc. used to determine this year's fastest-growing companies. In fact, the company has consistently placed on the Inc. list throughout the recent economic downturn and recession.

"Our growth mirrors the growth of the product management and marketing role in the tech industry as a whole, and it is a reflection of the growth that we're proud to have helped other companies achieve," says Craig Stull, CEO of Pragmatic Institute. "We're celebrating our 20th year in business, and the fact that we consistently make the Inc. list as an established company is a testament to our team's continued hard work and dedication."
