CHICAGO – January 31, 2014 – Rightpoint, Chicago’s leading digital agency and technology consulting company, has been named to Forbes’s list of America’s Most Promising Companies. Rightpoint is one of only two companies based in Illinois to make the 2014 list of 100 privately-held, high-growth companies.

Rightpoint was founded in 2007 on the philosophy to rethink the "typical" consulting model by combining attributes of management consulting, IT consulting and creative agency services to help organizations create experiences that transform their business. Since then, Rightpoint has grown to 125 employees and continues to provide their clients with a holistic set of services and a differentiated customer experience.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by Forbes and among the fastest growing companies in America,” said Ross Freedman, Co-founder of Rightpoint. “It’s exciting to see our vision for Rightpoint take shape, and to be recognized on a national scale is a testament to the brilliant people that make up the Rightpoint team.”

Forbes strove for a holistic gauge of young, privately-held businesses, attempting to pin down their trajectories by taking a range of variables into account. Over the course of four months Forbes reviewed hundreds of applications. The final assessment is based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management teams and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships. After verifying sales numbers, speaking with each company and debating their merits and blemishes, Forbes produces a final ranking.

“We're incredibly honored to be recognized by Forbes. The progress we continue to make would not be possible without the dedication, agility and passion of our team,” said Brad Schneider, Co-founder of Rightpoint. “We are humbled by this distinction and have a lot more in store for 2014 and beyond.”
