For the second year in a row, Portfolio Creative, a workforce innovation firm that connects clients with creative talent, was named to the Business First Fast Fifty list of rapidly growing companies. This year, Portfolio Creative was ranked #12 on the list, which is based on three-year revenue growth.
Earlier in 2009, Portfolio Creative was named the 326th fastest growing privately held firm in the nation by Inc. magazine. The firm has grown over 740% over the past three years and placed over 750 people in creative positions of all types, including graphic design, web programming, editing, copywriting, project management and more.
“We know that achieving rapid growth is difficult, yet sustaining it is even harder,” said Catherine Lang-Cline, co-owner and founder. “For example, research shows that of those who make it onto the Inc. 500 list only one in three manage to return the following year.* That’s why we’re especially excited to return to the Fast Fifty list.”
Portfolio Creative attributes its sustained growth to long-term client relationships as well as a depth of knowledge of the market that enables them to carefully place associates who are able to deliver a solid return on investment. Portfolio Creative plans to continue its rapid growth by expanding its services into direct hire, recruiting and payroll activities.
