New York, NY – Nov. 3, 2017 — ALM’s Consulting magazine released its annual ranking of the consulting industry’s Fastest Growing Firms—a celebration of the industry’s top movers and shakers in terms of revenue growth—at a gala awards dinner at New York’s Yale Club on Thursday, November 2nd. Blueprint Consulting Services topped the list as the profession’s No. 1 ranked firm.

The Fastest Growing Firms will be featured on, and will be available in the November issue of Consulting magazine on November 10.

Bellevue, Wash.-based Blueprint Consulting achieved a growth rate of 2,538 percent between December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2016 to top Consulting magazine’s ranking of the profession’s Fastest Growing Firms. Coming in at No. 2 was OnPrem Solution Partners, which grew 1,412 percent while CoreCompete —with 1,190 percent growth—finished No. 3. With a 740 percent growth rate, CirrusOne was No. 4 and Propeller placed No. 5 with 689 percent growth.

In all, 75 firms qualified for the ranking, which requires a minimum growth rate of 20 percent to be eligible.

“With mind-numbing growth, there’s absolutely no doubt these 75 consulting firms are disrupting the industry from the bottom up—they are the profession’s Fastest Growing Firms for 2017,” said Joseph Kornik, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief of Consulting magazine. “Consulting’s Fastest Growing Firms recognition and award, is aimed squarely at these up-and-coming firms that all too often fly below the radar because they’re not the biggest or the best-known firms. We want to bring these fast-growing firms to the forefront since they are the future of the consulting industry.”
