Marathon Consulting, LLC, a Hampton Roads based provider of Information Technology and Internet Marketing solutions, today announced that the company was named to the 34th annual Inc. 500/5000 list. Inc. Magazine’s list is an annual compilation of the most entrepreneurial and fastest growing, privately held U.S. companies.  Marathon Consulting is among 24 businesses based in Hampton Roads that made the 2015 Inc. 5000 list.

Marathon Consulting placed 4,916th on the 2015 list with a growth rate of 46% over the past three years.  During that time, Marathon also added 24 jobs.  This is the sixth consecutive year Marathon has been named to the list, ranking 3,698th on the 2014 list, 2,686th on the 2013 list, 2,558th on the 2012 list, 2,493rd on the 2011 list, and 466th on the 2010 Inc. 500 list.

“Marathon's recognition by Inc. Magazine for the sixth straight year is truly gratifying.  Having spoken with many of the local recipients of this award who had been honorees for multiple years, I can recall being so impressed with their consistent levels of growth and the philosophies behind it,” said Harris Pezzella, President of Marathon Consulting.   “It brings tremendous pride in knowing that Marathon has achieved a similar level of consistency and sustained growth as represented by this prestigious award.  Even more satisfying is the knowledge that this growth coincides with a continued commitment to excellent client service and a consulting staff that is second to none.”
