Cumberland Consulting Group Named to Inc.’s 5000 Fastest-Growing List for Eighth Consecutive Year

Inc. 5000 logoNASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 17, 2016) – Cumberland Consulting Group announced today it has been named to the Inc. 5000 list for the eighth consecutive year. The Inc. 5000 is a prestigious annual ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies compiled by Inc. magazine. The Nashville-based healthcare advisory, implementation and outsourcing services firm is ranked 4,072 on the 2016 list.

Cumberland debuted on the Inc. 5000 in 2009, only five years after the company’s founding. Since then, Cumberland’s headcount has grown fivefold, and its client base has evolved to include payer, provider and life sciences organizations. Additionally, the company has completed three acquisitions in the past three years. Most recently, Cumberland increased its presence in the payer market through the acquisition of Oleen Pinnacle Healthcare Consulting in April 2016.

“At Cumberland, we have focused on enhancing our capabilities and expanding our services to new markets over the past three years, and this has resulted in significant growth for our company,” said Brian Cahill, CEO of Cumberland. “We are honored to be included on the Inc. 5000 list again this year alongside so many of the country’s leading businesses.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com, is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 433%. 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, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” said 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.”

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.
