RESTON, VA, Aug. 28, 2017 – 1Rivet, a northern Virginia consulting firm was named to Inc. Magazine’s 5000 list for the second year in a row, ranking 1,236 among the nation’s fastest-growing private companies with a three-year growth rate of 330 percent.
1Rivet provides clients with expert assistance in mergers and acquisitions, complex IT integrations, application design and implementation, strategic outsourcing and talent acquisition services.
“Along with our stellar team, two areas that crucially contributed to our growth in 2016 were our M&A work and our expertise in designing and implementing new applications and complex IT systems,” said Managing Partner and CEO Eric Middleton.
“In 2016, we opened a Cloud-based Innovation Lab to bring our clients novel technologies, like machine learning, AI and IoT,” Middleton said.
“Our application design and implementation services heated up across our client base,” Middleton said. “Most firms either design or implement applications. By doing both and using top U.S. and offshore talent, we provide lower total ownership costs for new applications.”
A culture that treats customers as business partners also sets 1Rivet apart from other consultants. “We’re redefining the consulting experience for our clients,” Middleton says. “They see value daily and throughout the engagement from a team of people who have a vested interest in their success.”
1Rivet’s M&A work on the divestiture of GE and Antares Capital established the company as a top expert in system and data migrations as well as platform integration and data warehousing. It’s a trend the company expects to continue.
“We’re honored to be a part of Inc.’s list of the country’s fastest-growing companies and look forward to continued growth in the years ahead,” Middleton said.
