INC 5000 Generic Logo - 2016The Partners Group, a leading Northwest based financial and insurance consulting firm, has earned placement on the 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The Inc. 5000 represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses.

The Partners Group’s three-year growth rate of 56% has earned a ranking as number 58 among Oregon businesses listed on the Inc. 5000. This three-year growth rate was attributed by 46 additional jobs, plus the employee count raising from 52 employees in 2011, growing to 130 employees in 2016. President and CEO of The Partners Group, Rod Cruickshank, said “At The Partners Group, we continuously invest in our people, their health, and our community. We not only want to attract the best-of-the-best talent, but we also want our employees with us for the long haul.”

According to Eric Schurenberg, President and Editor-in-Chief of Inc. Magazine, “Only a tiny fraction of the nation’s companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent high growth. The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts. 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.”
