CHICAGO - January 24, 2018 – For Immediate Release

AArete, a consulting firm which recently garnered recognition by gaining a place in the Chicago Tribune’s 2017 Top Workplaces list, has also achieved ranking in Consulting Magazine's 2017 list of Fastest Growing Firms. Firms were ranked by rate of revenue growth between 2013 and 2016 with 75 firms qualifying for the ranking. A minimum growth rate of 20 percent was required to be eligible, and the firms making the ranking were all considered to be industry disruptors. The aim of the listings is to bring to the fore firms that may not have the most recognizable names, yet represent the future of the industry.

AArete CEO and Managing Director, Loren Trimble noted, “We congratulate all the companies that made it into Consulting Magazine’s 2017 list of fastest growing firms. While this clearly is a ranking that’s about who achieved the most rapid revenue growth, this wouldn’t happen without the drive to understand and fill a unique marketplace need. With so many bright firms you’re going up against, differentiation is not easy to achieve. In the case of AArete, we’ve put a premium on using key data sets and analytics to uncover otherwise hard-to-detect strategies forward, and we take this approach to inform every engagement we take on.”
