Cumberland Consulting Group Named to Inc. Magazine’s Top 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Companies

Firm Receives Distinction for Three-Year Sales Growth of Close to 100%

NASHVILLE, TN (August 12, 2009) Inc. Magazine announced today that it has named Cumberland Consulting Group, LLC, a Nashville-based national technology implementation firm, as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is the first year Cumberland has been included in the exclusive ranking of the Inc 5000. Cumberland is a technology implementation and project management firm serving ambulatory, acute, and post-acute healthcare providers.

Between 2005 and 2008, Cumberland experienced nearly 100 percent growth, with revenues increasing from $4.2 million to $8.0 million. The firm’s employment numbers have jumped from 25 billable consultants in 2006, to 53 located in 16 different states.
“Cumberland is proud to receive this recognition by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing companies in America,” said James D. Lewis, CEO and managing partner of Cumberland Consulting Group. “Our growth represents our successes in delivering innovative business solutions for healthcare providers so that they in turn can deliver a higher quality of healthcare, reduce errors and achieve greater savings.”
The companies are ranked according to percentage growth from 2005 through 2008. Additionally, companies must be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent, not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.
The 2009 Inc. 5000 serves as a unique report card on the U.S. economy. Despite the ongoing recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $214 billion, up $29 billion from last year, with a median three-year growth rate of 126 percent. The Inc. 5000 ranked companies are responsible for creating more than 1 million jobs since their founding, making the list perhaps the best example of the impact private, fast-growing companies can have on the economy.
