Clarity Partners has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in America for the sixth year in a row. With a three-year growth rate of 131 percent, Clarity is ranked 3054 on this year’s list of 5000 and is one of only 12 Chicago companies to make the list at least six times.

Each year, Inc. Magazine releases its ranking of the fastest-growing privately held companies based on growth over the last three years. The current group has amassed collective revenue of $206.2 billion in 2017, up 158 percent from 2014. Topping this year’s list was SwanLeap, PopSockets and Home Chef, another Chicago-based business.

Clarity has maintained continual and often exceptional growth since its inception in 2004. In its first year on the list, Clarity came in at number 1389 with 291 percent growth from 2009 to 2012.

“Our continued progress is a reflection of our valued client relationships and dedicated team members across the firm,” said Rodney Zech, a founder and managing partner at Clarity. “We are honored to be consistently included as an Inc. 5000 firm and look forward to continuing to build on our success.”
