"This recognition speaks volumes about our ability to develop and maintain excellent customer and partner relationships," said Fran Pierce, DSA's CEO. "Our employees continue to focus intently on our customers' needs – that pays off in any economic climate."
In a largely stagnant economy, median growth rate of 2011 Inc. 5000 companies remains an impressive 94 percent. The companies on this year's list report having created 350,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $366 billion, up 14 percent from last year.

"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is," says Inc. magazine Editor Jane Berentson.
