Inc. Magazine Names SingleHop to Annual 500|5000 List of Fastest-Growing Private Companies for Seventh Consecutive Year

SingleHop ranks No. 679 among IT Services companies with three-year sales growth of 42 percent

CHICAGO, August 19, 2016 – SingleHop, a leading provider of on-demand hosted private clouds and managed hosting, has been named to the 35th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, for the seventh-straight year. With three-year sales growth of 42 percent, SingleHop ranked No. 679 among IT services firms and at No. 4,953 overall.

“A seven-time Inc. 500|5000 honoree, SingleHop shares a prominent place with some of America’s most successful private companies,” said Zak Boca, SingleHop CEO and co-founder. “Our impressive growth and performance is driven by an outstanding team of leaders and individual contributors who deliver managed cloud and IT services that are easy to consume and give customers a holistic solution for effective cloud adoption. And we’re not slowing down,” continued Boca. “We’re marking our tenth year in business this year with the rollout of AI, a game-changer for how companies patch, monitor and manage their servers and cloud ecosystems.”

SingleHop is one of 40 Chicago-based IT Services companies to earn a ranking on this year’s list and among 205 Chicago-area-based firms overall. The company has made the list every year since amassing the 3-year requisite revenue history.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief, Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8 percent of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. The complete list of 2016 Inc. 5000 companies, their profiles and a interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, company size and other criteria is available at
