HAT TRICK: Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting Makes 3rd Appearance on the Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies

NEW YORK, August 17, 2021Inc. magazine today revealed that Denny Cherry & Associates Consulting [DCAC] has made a third appearance on the annual Inc. 5000 list. With 88.5% growth over 3 years, the company ranked #3741 on the most prestigious list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

Denny Cherry, founder and CEO of the thrice ranked, award-winning cloud solutions and database solutions company commented, “2020 demonstrated that businesses still utilizing on-premises servers and co-location facilities need to consider upgrading to cloud solutions, which offer more flexibility, dexterity, and security for their production in a rapidly changing environment.”

“The year really proved the mettle of our team at DCAC, too and I couldn’t be more grateful to them all. We met the immediate needs of businesses across the country as the pandemic radically altered access to their environment and backups. We meanwhile transformed into a full suite Cloud Service Provider (CSP), offering clients the ability to migrate from legacy hardware to an environment that offers scalability, reliability of multiple data centers with multiple redundancies, load balancing, and customization of business analytics, while enjoying the support of DCAC, which has the highest ratio of Microsoft Data Platform MVPs in the United States.”

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
