Louisville, Kentucky, August 18, 2016 – Inc. magazine ranked Alliance Cost Containment NO. 881 on the Inc. 5000 list, down from a 2015 rank of 1390 on the most significant ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
The list represents the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Alliance Cost Containment joins the rank of past Inc. 5000 award recipients; industry giants such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names who have also received the award.
“We are honored to be listed among this remarkable group of honorees”, said ACC CEO Miles Lee. “Our dedicated team works hard every day to deliver profit improvement to a devoted client base. Our team is fixated on exceeding our clients’ expectations. It is that focus that has earned us this accolade. Our non-stop commitment to transparently delivering profitable results to our clients is what sets ACC apart from others.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s 35-year history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433% with ACC coming in ahead of the average at 452%. 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% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of the Inc. 5000 can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“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.”
All honorees will be recognized at the Inc. 5000 Conference from October 18 – 20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of our time,such as best-selling author Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder Adam Miller, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.

About the Inc. 5000 List and its Methodology
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2012 to 2015. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2012. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2015. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2012 is $100,000; the minimum for 2015 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies in the top 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue.
The Inc. 5000 is a list of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation. Started in 1982, this prestigious list of the nation’s most successful private companies has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success. The Inc. 5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony is an annual event that celebrates their remarkable achievements. The event also offers informative workshops, celebrated keynote speakers, and evening functions. •
