Washington D.C., April 8, 2016 – The Women Presidents’ Organization (WPO) announced at the WPO Annual Conference that Pinnacle Group has been named one of the fastest women-owned companies in the United States for the second consecutive year.
Pinnacle Group earned one of the top spots among a global pool of applicants as a result of substantial revenue growth over the last four years. Since 2010, the Dallas-based firm has seen revenue quadruple and in 2015, Pinnacle Group exceeded $1 billion dollars in gross revenue.
“We are thrilled to once again honor Nina Vaca and Pinnacle Group as one of this year’s Fifty Fastest Growing Women-Owned/Led Businesses. Placing first on the list last year and second this year is an amazing and rare accomplishment. Nina epitomizes the important role that women entrepreneurs play in bolstering both the U.S. and global economies,” said Marsha Firestone, Ph. D., president and founder of the Women Presidents’ Organization. “We congratulate Nina for Pinnacle Group’s continuing growth and success.”
Vaca’s Pinnacle story has been chronicled in WPO’s “50 Fastest Growing Women-Owned/Led Companies Handbook,” a guide for women entrepreneurs that helps them find successful models for their careers, identify best practices, and eventually rapidly grow their ventures. The handbook will also be released today. “We are honored that Pinnacle Group has again been named as one of the fastest growing women-owned companies by the Women President’s Organization,” said Vaca. “We’ve enjoyed two back-to-back years of tremendous growth, capping off an amazing four-year run. I also couldn’t be more delighted than to have reached this milestone with a corporate team comprised of 66% women. As we look to the future, we cannot help but feel excited and blessed to be in this industry at a time when such amazing things are possible.”
Now in its 20th year, Pinnacle Group was founded by Vaca in 1996 as an IT solutions provider to the Fortune 500 and has grown it into one of the premier providers of workforce solutions in North America. With several thousand resources serving clients across the U.S. and Canada, Pinnacle Group has become a powerhouse in its industry, providing comprehensive talent acquisition and workforce solutions include staffing, managed services, payrolling and IC compliance, and Provade VMS vendor management software.
“The WPO has put together a list of truly inspiring business leaders to remind us all to continue to dream big! We are so proud to be recognized with the other honorees, as they show the real power of women to create iconic brands and products,” said Vaca. “There are over 10.4 million women-owned businesses generating more than $1 trillion dollars in revenue for the United States economy. Women have never had a bigger opportunity to succeed in business and by coming together to support and inspire each other our opportunities will only multiply.”
Pinnacle Group has previously been recognized as the number one fastest growing women-owned business in the U.S. by the Women President’s Organization in 2015, and as one of the fastest-growing companies on the lists of Inc. 500/5000 and Staffing Industry Analysts for the past eight years.
