the telos institute Named Fastest Growing Company by Financial Times

CLEVELAND, OHIO (April 28, 2021) – the telos institute, a leading global organizational development firm, has been recognized by the 2021 Financial Times’ list of Fastest Growing Companies in the Americas, which includes companies from the US, Canada, Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, Brazil, and Mexico.

This prestigious ranking of the top 500 fastest growing companies was compiled with Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider, based on each company’s compound annual growth rate in revenue between 2016 and 2019.

“telos’ recognition on this list is a tribute to the hard work of our team and a testament to our core purpose – to liberate greatness,” said Rick Simmons, CEO, the telos institute. “Our continued growth is market affirmation of our unwavering belief in the greatness of our client and our teams. We are honored, once again, to be recognized by for our team’s success.”

The recognition is the third time in less than a year that telos has been recognized for its strong three-year growth rate. In August, telos was named to Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing companies. Regionally, telos captured the Number 1 ranking on the Emerging Business roster in the company’s inaugural appearance of the Fast Track 50.

The Financial Times list offers a snapshot of the relative strength of companies as they entered the pandemic and points to those with the resilience to emerge from the crisis in good health.

“As a company that embraces change as a competitive advantage, we were more than prepared to not only manage the challenges of the last year, but see them as opportunities to further our growth,” Simmons said. “As a team, we are excited with the momentum we have heading into the other side of the pandemic.”
